Fresh from a strong finish at the Mercuries Taiwan Masters last week, Indian golfer Gaganjeet Bhullar is hoping to go a step further and claim the title at the USD 500,000 Yeangder Tournament Players Championship, starting on Thursday.
Bhullar enjoyed a solid 2016 season where he won twice and he is determined to win the Yeangder TPC again after his success in 2012 at the Linkou International Golf and Country Club.
The 29-year-old will be among the star-studded cast which includes Chan Shih-chang of Chinese Taipei, a two-time Asian Tour winner, Juvic Pagunsan of the Philippines, who finished tied second last week, and David Lipsky of the United States.
"I won here in 2012 so I have a lot of fond memories. I have a lot of good finishes in this country. This golf course really suits my game and I am riding high on confidence and looking forward to playing well this week," Bhullar said.
"It has been an okay year. I would say I am playing well but not scoring in all four rounds. There were many occasions where I would start well over first two days and could not click over the weekend. But other than that, I'm feeling good with my game, hitting the ball well and thinking positive," he added.
After finishing tied seventh at the Mercuries Taiwan Masters last week, Bhullar, ranked 25th on the Order of Merit is eyeing another good result at his favourite hunting ground.
"My goal is to win on Tour every year. I was fortunate enough to win twice last year so I want to repeat what I did last year and work on my world ranking points. I hope to get into the top-100 by the end of the year," he said.
