Stars to watch in 2017: Siddikur Rahman


Sentosa, Singapore, January 8:

He is regarded a national hero back home. After all, no ordinary folk can lay claim to the honour of inking all the many ‘firsts’ in his country’s golf record books. He was the first player from Bangladesh to win an Asian Tour title in Brunei in 2010.

He was also the first Bangladeshi to represent his country at the ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf in Australia in 2013.

He became the first sportsman from his country to qualify for the Olympics on merit and was accorded the honour of becoming Bangladesh’s flagbearer during the opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro last August.

Siddikur Rahman is a name that needs no further introduction in Bangladesh and it would not be long before his name is mentioned in the same breath as other sporting greats internationally.

It has been four years since his last victory on the Asian Tour and the wait for that third one could come again in 2017 if he plays to his true potential.
