TAKE Open, the 13th event of the landmark 10th PGTI season, will be headlined by two of India’s rising stars, Chikkarangappa and Khalin Joshi.
Both Bengalureans, along with international winners such as the legendary Randhawa as well as Rashid Khan and Rahil Gangjee.It will be a sweet homecoming for Chikka, who recently secured his Asian Tour card for 2017 after a third straight top-10 in Asia.
Chikka said, “I was struggling with my wedge play till very recently. But after working with my coach, I was able to make a huge improvement in this aspect. As a result, I came up with some low scores over the last one month.
“It’s a big relief that I don’t have to go to the Asian Tour Q School now. The fact that I had to save my card was constantly on my mind, so there was a lot of pressure. But I just told myself to hang in there and be patient.
