Poor start again by Siddikur

In what has become a pattern for ace Bangladesh golfer Siddikur Rahman, he got off to a horrendous start at the Barclays Singapore Open with a score of four-over-par 75 seeing him finish in joint 132nd position after the first round yesterday.

It was an entirely different experience for first round leader Thomas Bjorn of Denmark who carded a five-under-par 66 to take the solo lead, leading Simon Khan of England, Pablo Martin of Spain and Chinnarat Phadungsil of Thailand by a stroke at the Sentosa Golf Club.

Siddikur, who is tenth on the Asian Tour Order of Merit, endured a particularly nightmarish back nine in which he triple-bogeyed in the tenth hole before adding two more bogeys in the twelfth and fourteenth. The only bright spot was a birdie in the first hole, which was more than offset by his poor performance over the rest of the day.
