  • SHARE
Singapore, November 9: It has been yet another exciting week on the Asian Tour as we witnessed a worthy winner in India’s Chiragh Kumar who triumphed by three shots at the Panasonic Open India on Sunday.
In this Monday rewind, we look back at the US$400,000 event and chose five interesting things that happened in the tournament.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap] Kumar missed out on his playing rights last season after finishing 65th on the Asian Tour Order of Merit. He can ease his worries now as he has secured a one-year exemption on the Asian Tour following his victory.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap] Thai veteran Thaworn Wiratchant, 48, showed never to write off an old man as he closed with a second consecutive 69 to grab a share of second place at the Panasonic Open India.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap] Siddikur’s joint runner-up finish adds to his superb track record at the Delhi Golf Club. He has won once at the venerable Delhi course and finished runner-up on four occasions in the last five years now.
