Golfer Bhullar to defend Macau Open

Aug 22 2013, 6:00am CDT | by IANS

Macau, Aug 22 (IANS) India's Gaganjeet Bhullar Thursday said he will return here in October to defend his Macau Open title which he won in emphatic style last year.

Macau, Aug 22 — India's Gaganjeet Bhullar Thursday said he will return here in October to defend his Macau Open title which he won in emphatic style last year.

Leading from start-to-finish, the young star triumphed on 16-under-par 268 total to win by two strokes ahead of American Jonathan Moore and Thai Thitiphun Chuayprakong.

The Macau Golf and Country Club is a hunting ground for Bhullar who also recorded a runners-up finish in 2009 when Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand was crowned champion.

Bhullar was in the middle of a hot streak last year when he won the tournament. Just four weeks prior, he tasted victory at the Tournament Players' Championship in Chinese Taipei, beating the very player who pipped him at the 2009 Macau Open. He followed up with solid performances in China and Singapore to complete a successful 2012.

Born in Amritsar, Bhullar has four Asian Tour victories and 10 professional wins on the domestic Indian circuit and will be eager to defend his Macau Open title which takes place from Oct 17-20.

"I have great memories of my win last year. I played consistently well throughout the four days and managed to hold off some really big names which gave me a lot of confidence. I like the course a lot and have every reason to believe I can repeat what I accomplished last year. I am looking forward to the challenge."

Bhullar will be in good company this year as multiple major winner Ernie Els of South Africa confirmed his participation.

"It is fantastic news that Ernie will be in the field this year. To have such a great champion compete amongst us is great news," he added.

Freddie Roach on Chris Algieri: 'He's got a good jab, that's it'

Jul 29 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: bad left hook

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach doesn't sound impressed with Manny Pacquiao's next opponent. Chris Algieri will be the November 22 opponent for Manny Pacquiao in Macau, and while the boxing world wasn't exactly set on fire when the news was announced recently, Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach is taking it to another level of disinterest by pretty much dismissing the challenger: "His style, he's a bit of a runner.

What's next? Cung Le addresses UFC career prospects after Michael Bisping headliner

Jul 28 2014 3:05pm CDT | Source: MMAjunkie

Cung Le joked earlier this year that as a veteran, he’d be much better suited to one-round fights than five. But now that he’s booked for a headliner opposite Michael Bisping, he better well adjust to the extra time. “This time around, I’m going to pace myself and try not to blow my wad in the first two rounds,” Le said backstage at this past Saturday’s UFC on FOX 12 event in San Jose. “I feel really good for this fight. N ...

UFC: Has Michael Bisping Been Relegated to Fun Fights Instead of Contendership?

Jul 25 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Michael Bisping's career has been a pretty interesting one when you really look at it. He was a trailblazer in the UFC for fighters from the U.K., a winner of The Ultimate Fighter when that still meant something and a guy who spent the better part of a decade being reasonably considered as a fringe title contender. Say what one will about the quality of his opponents (largely mediocre) or his likeability (limited to most), but he did something few men wil ...

Guillermo Rigondeaux's Next Fight: Ranking the Best Potential Opponents

Jul 19 2014 9:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Guillermo Rigondeaux made a statement on Saturday evening at the Cotai Arena in Macau, blasting out the woefully overmatched Sod Kokietgym in just one round to retain his unified super bantamweight championship. The 33-year-old Cuban proved once again that he is an immense talent who is capable of producing exciting moments, but questions linger about whether or not this performance will return him to the good graces of his promoter Top Rank and the major tel ...
