Dubai: Shiv Kapur admits feeling more than a twinge of disappointment at not being able to get into the Omega Dubai Desert Classic last two years and the Indian golfer is determined to make up for the lost time as he starts his campaign at the USD 2.5 million event here on Wednesday.
Last year, Kapur missed out of the event as he did not have the European Tour card but having earned his card at the same city in November 2013, he is now leading the Indian charge along with veteran Jeev Milkha Singh and rising star Gaganjeet Bhullar.
Kapur, who has played five times before in the event, recalled his best memory. "One of the great memories I have is of the scoreboard showing Tiger and me tied at seven under after three days (in 2008). But he went on to shoot to 65 and I had a 75 and he won in style on the last hole. That excitement, for me, sums up the Dubai Classic," he said.
