In 2015, Siddikur came close to lifting a third title at the Queen’s Cup and Panasonic Open India where he finished tied-third and second respectively. A back injury also slowed him down during the year. He enjoyed his biggest career victory when he won the 2013 Hero Indian Open at his favourite golf course, the Delhi Golf Club and notched seven other top-10s. He was also the first Bangladeshi to represent his country at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf in Australia and earned his place to represent Team Asia at the inaugural EurAsia Cup present by DRB-HICOM when he finished in fourth place on the Order of Merit, the third time in four seasons that he has finished top-10 on the rankings. He wrote a slice of history in 2010 when he became the first player from Bangladesh to win on the Asian Tour. He triumphed in the Brunei Open, beating Jbe Kruger of South Africa in a play-off. It was a memorable victory as he was hailed a golfing hero back home.
Siddikur worked as a ball boy at Kurmitola Golf Club in Bangladesh to support his studies. He made his first club with a broken seven iron head stuck on a metal rod. Was picked from out of 100 kids to train by his club and represented his country in the Asian Games. He is currently attached to Kurmitola Golf Club as an honorary member.
