After enjoying an excellent season at home and in India, Jamal Hossain Mollah is gunning for an Asian Tour card. The 38-year-old golfer, who started the year with Summit Open title in the BPGA circuit, is going to the Asian Tour Qualifying School as he eyes playing regularly at the biggest tour of the continent.
After finishing runner-up in three events of PGTI last year, Jamal feels he should be playing his trade on a bigger circuit.
His conviction was emboldened by the win in the Summit Open, the curtain raising tournament of BPGA, where Jamal pipped Siddikur Rahman and Badal Hossain for the trophy.
Jamal carded 13-under-par 203, leaving behind Badal and Siddikur, both racking up seven-under-par 209.
A total of 105 golfers including 82 professional and 23 amateur golfers took part in the three-day event.
“Happy to be able to start the year with a victory. I did well in India, too, last year. I’m pretty confident. I hope I will earn the Asian Tour card this year, and if I get it, I’ll hopefully be able to do well on the Asian Tour,” Jamal told reporters after the Summit victory.
