Gaganjeet Bhullar ready to defend title at Indonesia Open

Jakarta: After a ligament injury sidelined him for two months, a fit-again Gaganjeet Bhullar will be back in action as he defends his title at the Bank BRI Indonesia Open which gets underway here on Thursday.

Bhullar was in a cast for 21 days after tearing a ligament in his left wrist in September and the Indian golfer will make a welcome return to the USD 750,000 Asian Tour event at the Damai Indah Golf, Pantai Indah Kapuk course.

"It was a frustrating time sitting at home and doing nothing. I did a lot of physiotherapy and acupressure therapy to recover. Now I can hit my driver and three wood without any restrictions," said the 26-year-old Bhullar.

The injury has kept him away from playing regularly but he is excited to return to Indonesia, a country where he won his first Asian Tour tournament in 2009.

"The feeling is quite different because I'm one of those guys who love to play in a lot of tournaments. I think the last two years I've played close to 30 or 35 tournaments a year. It is quite a challenging time for me but Indonesia is close to my heart. I had a lot of good finishes here I'm looking forward to play some good golf again," said Bhullar.

Bhullar will be joined by three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington of Ireland, who is playing in Indonesia for the first time in his career, six-time Asian Tour champion Scott Hend of Australia and local favourite George Gandranata.
