World Golf Championship - Asian Quailifier Sept 30, 2004

Starting tomorrow, India is represented by Digvijay and Gaurav Ghei . Curious as to Why is india not represented by Arjun Atwal (who has had a great year so far?)

I think Arjun Atwal will be attempting to qualify into the US PGA tour, and I seem to remember reading somewhere that the qualifying school event begins this week. Perhaps Jyoti Randhawa is also absent for this reason.

I haven't seen Jyoti's name in the starting list for PGA qualifier. Seems like he is giving it a miss.

Since Digvijay and Ghei participated in the regional qualifiers for world cup, they continue to represent India in the finals. But I don't know why our top players were not in the regional qualifiers. I remember last year also the our top players were not in regional qualifiers and we couldn't get through it.

Gaurav Ghei always seems to make time for representing India. Good for him! But I wish he would live up to his early promise as a player: he may be restricted from progressing because of a dearth of financing. Just a hunch...

:( A disappointing start for India. Although Gaurav has represented India at a big stage like this, but probably it may be first time for Digvijay Singh. I hope they keep their nerves and improve on their performance.

Another bad day as India still stuck at last position with a round of 83 (not the worst round today) for total of 164 and we are around 8 strokes behind the Denmark (second worst team).
Don't know if there is cut ?

India had a better day on the third day of the World Golf Championship. The Indian pair was minus 2 for the round.

The standing so far:

1 SOUTH AFRICA 70 69 63 - 202 (-14)
T2 FRANCE 69 72 68 - 209 (-7)
T2 UNITED STATES 71 70 68 - 209 (-7)
T4 GERMANY 67 77 67 - 211 (-5)
T4 SWEDEN 72 72 67 - 211 (-5)
T6 SPAIN 71 75 66 - 212
T6 ENGLAND 73 73 66 - 212
T6 SCOTLAND 71 73 68 - 212
T9 ARGENTINA 70 73 70 - 213
T9 WALES 68 74 71 - 213
11 PARAGUAY 70 75 70 - 215
12 JAPAN 74 71 71 - 216
T13 IRELAND 74 77 66 - 217
T13 SOUTH KOREA 71 75 71 - 217
T13 NEW ZEALAND 71 74 72 - 217
T16 AUSTRALIA 72 76 71 - 219
T16 MEXICO 71 78 70 - 219
18 TRIN & TOB 75 81 67 - 223
19 HONG KONG 76 80 69 - 225
T20 DENMARK 72 84 72 - 228
T20 MYANMAR 72 83 73 - 228
22 THAILAND 76 78 76 - 230
23 INDIA 81 83 70 - 234

All teams play every day and there is no cut after the second day. I believe it is the first time India is competing at this level, and it will give a boost to Indian golf. In the future India can be expected to perform at a higher level.

Go India!

India moved up one spot and did not finish last! The Indian golfers were seventh best over the last two days, which shows that once they got over the jitters of the first two days and settled down they performed well.

Can anyone tell us how these selection based on??? As I remembered Rahil Gangjee secured a dream victory in the $300,000 Volkswagen Masters - China in May and Amandeep Johl was tied 3rd position in Macau Open after leading it until 3rd round ... thats also in May ... these two were their notable performances. Or am I missing something else???

Jaydeep,

I am not sure how India chooses the two golfers for this tournament. Last year Digvijay Singh and Gaurav Ghei represented India and qualified from the Asian region.

Some Indian golfers are tied up at the time of the World Cup and most likely decline the invitation to play in this tournament. I think Jeev Milkha Singh and Jyoti Randhawa will try to qualify into the US PGA and will be busy. Arjun Atwal will also join Jyoti (he is certain to play the US PGA Qualifier) if he does not earn the PGA card in 2005 by finishing in the top 125 of the money list.
