Bhullar tied 8th, eyes upset at Shanghai golf

Oct 31 2013, 5:00am CDT | by IANS

Shanghai, Oct 31 (IANS) India's Gaganjeet Bhullar is hopeful of creating an upset after he opened his campaign with a three-under-par 69 to take a share of eighth place in the $8.5 million WGC-HSBC Champions golf in Shanghai, China Thursday.

Shanghai, Oct 31 — India's Gaganjeet Bhullar is hopeful of creating an upset after he opened his campaign with a three-under-par 69 to take a share of eighth place in the $8.5 million WGC-HSBC Champions golf in Shanghai, China Thursday.

Although Bhullar trails first round leader Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland by four shots, India's sole representative at this Shanghai showpiece is confident of upstaging the star-studded field at the Sheshan International Golf Club this week.

"There's still a lot of golf left and my hopes are really high. I'm playing well and striking the ball really well and I guess anything and everything is possible over the next three days," said Bhullar.

Bhullar's confidence comes from his battling performance where he overcame a stumbling start in his opening eight holes before finding his way back into the mix with five birdies starting from the par-four nine.

"I was two-over after eight holes and I guess I was trying to figure out the green speed then," said Bhullar.

"But after that, I got really comfortable on the back-nine. I gave myself lots of birdie opportunities and I was glad I took advantage of all of them," added the Indian.

Sharing eighth place with six other players including Dustin Johnson of the United States, Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Asian Tour honorary member and International Ambassador Ernie Els of South Africa, Bhullar believes the gap between players from Asia and the rest of the world will be closed once they find their self belief.

"I guess the only difference between us, Asian Tour players and these other world class players lies in our mental strength. With more and more opportunities to play in the big tournaments in this part of the world, we'll definitely be on par with them very soon."

Keegan Bradley seeks Ryder Cup revenge for USA team's Medinah meltdown

Sep 22 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

The U.S. Ryder Cup captain calls Keegan Bradley, ‘the American Ian Poulter,’ in reference to the passion Tom Watson’s first wild-card pick brings to the biennial matches. Were it not for the heroics of his European counterpart, Ian Poulter, two years ago at Medinah, Keegan Bradley would no doubt have been named the most valuable player of the 2012 Ryder Cup matches. As things turned out, of course, Poulter went into his other-wor ...

Carney: Who will win the Ryder Cup? It’s all about the BIG GUYS

Sep 20 2014 9:43pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

Come Friday, when the U.S. faces Great Britain and Ireland in the 40th Ryder Cup, I’ll be watching through Irish eyes. Paul McGinley’s eyes. I won’t be worried about how the captain’s picks are doing. I won’t be thinking, What if we only had Billy Horschel! I won’t be trying to figure out what “pods” Watson is putting together or how his rookies are faring. That’s not how McGinley will be judging things. He’ll be looking at “the big guys.” A while back I had a chance to talk to the Euro ...

2014 Ryder Cup: Don't Count Team USA out Just Yet

Sep 18 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The United States has managed to win just one of the last six Ryder Cup tournaments. Going back to 1985, the U.S. team has beaten the Europeans in just four of 14 Ryder Cup clashes, which is an abysmal 28.57 percent winning percentage for Team USA. You have to go back to 1993 to find the last time that the U.S. Ryder Cup team was able to win on European soil. So, needless to say, the past two generations of Ameri ...

What If Sports Stars Were Fat? Including Rory McIlroy, Henry Shefflin And Tommy Bowe

Sep 16 2014 4:45am CDT | Source: balls

Balls.ie Professional sports stars are like fine-tuned athletic machines. In the modern era of specialised diet programmes and rigorous training regimes, it is a rare sight to see an athlete carrying a bit of extra weight. The novelty of what has become colloquially known as the “fat-lete” has almost become extinct. If you ever wondered, even just out of sheer bitterness, what a certain sporting hero would lo ...
