Gangjee ready for Kensville Challenge

Rahil Gangjee, fresh from resurrecting his career by earning his card once again for the Asian Tour, is raring to go one better on his 2012 performance at the Gujarat Kensville Challenge to be held from January 31 to February 3.

Gangjee, a former winner on the Asian Tour, a former India No. 1 in amateur section, struck a purple patch in the closing stages of the final round of Qualifying Tour to sink four birdies in last five holes and leapfrog to 21st and earn full playing privileges on the Asian tour this year.

The first winner of the Gujarat Kensville Challenge, Gaganjeet Bhullar, is back and all top stars of India and some former European Tour winners, too, will be seen in action.

The field also includes Rich Beem a 2002 PGA Championships winner. He will become the first Major champion to tee up at the Kensville Challenge. The field will be 120 players, from almost 25 nationalities around the world.

Gangjee, a winner on Asian Tour in his Rookie season in 2004, has spent last two seasons on ‘I will open my season with the Kensville Challenge, which has great memories for me from 2012. I came so close to the title that I could almost smell, before I lost in the play-off,’ said Gangjee.

‘For the present it is European Challenge Tour in Gujarat and then a lot of events in Asia and India, too,’ said Gangjee.

‘It will be good to catch up with my friends from Indian PGTI Tour and also Shiv Kapur, who I heard has also confirmed his entry.’

The Gujarat Kensville Challenge, the only European Challenge Tour event in India, is now in its third year and is carrying a purse of 200,000 Euros.
