Sentosa, Singapore, February 6: In case you missed the action at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open, we have got you covered in this recap! Here’s five things you need to know from the recently-concluded Asian Tour event held at the Kurmitola Golf Club.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]Young Thai talent Jazz Janewattananond finally claimed his maiden Asian Tour victory at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open. He has been plying his trade on the region’s premier Tour since turning professional in 2010.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]Jazz revived his career with the victory as he missed out on his Asian Tour card for the first time in his professional career after finishing 63rd on the 2016 Order of Merit. He missed out on regaining his card at the Qualifying School earlier in January too.

The Australian had told him to play his best possible round on the final day and not worry about what others are doing. He also told Jazz to stick to the same game plan and execution and play his game right till the end. That piece of advice proved helpful!
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]Jazz had looked up to Australian Sam Brazel, who claimed his breakthrough victory at the 2016 UBS Hong Kong Open, for inspiration too.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]5[/dropcap]Home hero Siddikur Rahman claimed the best finish ever by a local player at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open, which was inaugurated in 2015. He closed with a five-under-par 66 to finish four shots back of Jazz in second place.
