Siddikur 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. He finished second in the Mercuries Taiwan Masters and posted two other top-10s. Only missed three cuts in 16 starts and ended the year in a high seventh place on the Order of Merit. Also enjoyed a tied 11th finish at the PGA Tour co-sanctioned CIMB Asia Pacific Classic, Malaysia where he earned praises from Adam Scott. He earned his playing rights on Tour by finishing in the top-40 at Qualifying School in 2009 and posted three top-20s to show glimpses of his potential. In 2011, he enjoyed another solid year, finishing eighth on the rankings with three top-five finishes and two other top-10s. Was beaten to second place by Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand at the SAIL Open in India. Started 2012 strongly with two second place finishes in the Panasonic Open India and Queen’s Cup in Thailand and then finished third in the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters in Malaysia and Venetian Macau Open. Siddikur dominated the amateur scene back home with five wins and claimed seven other titles abroad.
