Bhullar ready to defend title in Indonesia

Bhullar ready to defend title in Indonesia
After a ligament injury sidelined him for two months, a fit-again Gaganjeet Bhullar will be back in action as he defends his title at the Bank BRI Indonesia Open which gets underway here on Thursday.

Bhullar was in a cast for 21 days after tearing a ligament in his left wrist in September and the Indian golfer will make a welcome return to the $750,000 Asian Tour event at the Damai Indah Golf, Pantai Indah Kapuk course.

“It was a frustrating time sitting at home and doing nothing. I did a lot of physiotherapy and acupressure therapy to recover. Now I can hit my driver and three wood without any restrictions,” said 26-year-old Bhullar. The injury has kept him away from playing regularly but he is excited to return to Indonesia, a country where he won his first Asian Tour tournament in 2009.

“The feeling is quite different because I’m one of those guys who love to play in a lot of tournaments. I think the last two years I’ve played close to 30 or 35 tournaments a year. It is quite a challenging time for me but Indonesia is close to my heart. I had a lot of good finishes here I’m looking forward to play some good golf again,” said Bhullar.

Stage set for Indian Open

The tree-lined narrow course of the Delhi Golf Club is ready to host the likes of Thidapa Suwannapura, Carlota Ciganda, Gwladys Nocera, Vani Kapoor and Sharmila Nicollet for the eighth edition of women’s Indian Open to be held here from December 4 to 6.

The $300,000 event, tri-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour, Ladies Asian Golf Tour and Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI), will see 108 top professionals from around the globe vying for the title.
