Singapore, Oct 19: Indian golfer Chiragh Kumar has earned his 2016 Asian Tour card after battling to a joint runner-up finish at the $1 million Macao Open for his best result since 2011. The 31-year-old was delighted to secure full playing rights for next season after rrowly missing out on a full card when he finished 65th on the Asian Tour Order of Merit last year. He won $86,500 after finishing behind eventual winner Scott Hend of Australia to swell his season’s haul to $107,737 which pushed him from 69th to 24th on the merit list. Chiragh said he draws inspiration from compatriots Anirban Lahiri and Gaganjeet Bhullar, who were in the same team as him in the 2006 Doha Asian Games where they claimed the silver medal. IANS
