Kapur to seek enlightenment from Binaghi

  • SHARE
May 29: India’s Shiv Kapur, a one-time Asian Tour winner, will turn to renowned Italian coach Alberto Binaghi to revive his title aspirations following a dismal campaign at the US Open Qualifiers on Monday.
Kapur withdrew from the second round of the qualifiers after he struggled with an opening two-over-par 74.
The Indian is now looking forward to his reunion with Binaghi as he is confident that the Italian, who is credited for the successes of the Molinari brothers (Edoardo and Francesco) as well as last week’s BMW PGA Championship winner Matteo Manassero, will help to rediscover his winning form.
"I have known him for a while and had practiced at his academy in Italy last season. He's a great guy to talk to and has good knowledge related to the short game, where I have not been doing well since last few weeks,” said Kapur, who finished in eighth place on the Asian Tour Order of Merit last season after posting five top-10s.
“Binaghi has helped Manassero grow into an exceptional player and I'm hoping his magic turns things around for me too," the 31-year-old told the Indian media.
