In a rather disappointing day for Indian golfers, Shiv Kapur managed to stay tied 9th at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters on Friday. While players like Sujjan Singh, who had started off well on Thursday, fell out of contention, Kapur held fort.

"I turned something out of nothing today. I really had nothing going. I was even par through 13 holes but then I just kicked into gear and birdied 14 and 15. It is just a reward for patience on a day where it was quite breezy. I didn't have much happening but I stayed patient and put myself back into the tournament.

"I have a solid eight or nine months now. I have a couple of wins in India so I obviously have a lot of confidence. If I can get within shouting distance then I can do some damage. The key is to put myself in position. Tomorrow is going to be an important day," said the 31-year old.
