What a finale!!!

Well, well, well!!! What a finish it was to the Indian Open Golf Championship!!!

Muniappa won it in the playoffs with Lee. Lee had finished off with 12 under. Muniappa birdied the 16 to get to 13 under, but then bogeyed the 17 to fall back to level. A par on the 18th resulted in a play off with Lee.

 Both players landed into the left hand bunker on the fairway with their drive on the par 5 18th hole and had to lay up. Muniappa went first for the green, His ball seemed to hang in the air just a bit over the water, inviting grasps from the gallery, but fell safely on the green, within birdeable distance. If Muniappa's ball was close to the edge of the green near the water, Lee's was even more so, landing just a couple of yards in.. Lee missed his birdie, while Muniappa kept his nerve and rolled it in, much to the delight of the gallery!!!

Signature Golf

Sanjay Singh (20 points) surged past veteran golfer David D’Souza (18 points) to win the 0-8 handicap category in the Karnataka Golf Association’s intra-club event in the Signature Golf championship held at the KGA course here.

Fond memories for me since I took part in a similar event in Mumbai last year. Not that I won anything, but coz the official photographer took a really good picture of me teeing off from hole no 1!!!!!

Hero Honda Indian Open -

Looks like the stars are heading towards India!!

'Major winner Michael Campbell of New Zealand will play next week’s Hero Honda Indian Open, the richest full-field event on the Asian Tour with prize money of US$1.25 million.
Campbell became part of the golfing elite when he held off world number one Tiger Woods to win the US Open in 2005.
He was named 2005 European Tour Golfer of the Year after adding the World Match Play Championship to his US Open title.
The 40-year-old joins Indian star Arjun Atwal and two-time PGA Tour winner Daniel Chopra of Sweden in a strong field for India’s national Open which will be played for the first time at the DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurgaon from October 8 to 11.
“It is a great thrill for me to play the Hero Honda Indian Open,” said Campbell. “Golf is booming in India with great players, fantastic courses and a growing schedule of tournaments.
“I have heard a lot about the Indian Open, which is rich in history with notable winners like Peter Thomson and Payne Stewart down through the years. I hope to add my name to that list.”  '
