India’s Himmat Rai turned his lacklustre season around with a battling performance at the Ho Tram Open where he settled for a tied-second place finish after losing to Sergio Garcia on the second play-off hole. Rai, who started the week in 116th position, propelled to 35th on the Order of Merit and secured his Asian Tour card for 2016!
