Comeback a great test of patience: Bhullar

  • SHARE
February 26: India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar is hoping that good times will return soon after enduring a tough phase of his burgeoning career due to a wrist injury.
The five-time Asian Tour winner has missed the cut in the first three tournaments of the new 2015 season, which he believes is a great test of his patience and perseverance after returning to action late last year.
Bhullar tore a ligament in his left wrist in September and took two months off to recuperate.
"I was playing very well until September when the wrist injury happened. The injury had a major impact on my game and I wasn't at my best from there on," he told the Indian media.
"It's been a tough phase of my career. It's been frustrating and my patience has been tested. I've almost recovered from the ligament tear injury now and there is not as much pain as I had earlier. Fortunately, I didn't need to alter my swing."
He expressed his delight with countryman Anirban Lahiri’s recent success where the latter won two events in three starts at the Maybank Malaysian Open and Hero Indian Open. Lahiri is also now ranked 34th in the world.
"Anirban’s recent successes are the best thing to happen to Indian golf. We needed someone in the top-50 for the game to grow further in the country.
"I'm very happy for him since we've played a lot together since our junior days. I'm confident India will produce many more champions in the coming years."
