Kapur Eyes on Olympics
Hongkong, January 8, More than 30 Asian Tour champions will also get their 2020 season underway at Hong Kong’s longest standing professional sporting event, which is sanctioned the Asian Tour and the Hong Kong Golf Association, with the European Tour continuing to stage the tournament.
Among them is India’s Shiv Kapur, who is determined to earn his place at the Olympics, starting with a solid performance at the Hong Kong Open which boosts a prize purse of US$1 million.
“I’m feeling good about my game and it’s always nice to come back to a familiar golf course where I had a fair amount of success. It’s a new time of the year for us to play the Hong Kong Open in January. It’s the Olympics year and I’m on the brink of qualification so I need a few good weeks to get there. It has always been a dream of mine to play in the Olympics especially after I won the gold medal at the Asian Games in 2002,” said the 37-year-old Kapur.
