Ace Golfer  Siddikur Rahman missed the cut in the Fiji International by three strokes after settling for an even-par second round at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course yesterday.

The 32-year-old golfer exchanged one birdie for a single bogey on the day, but had to pay for his wayward first round attempt when he had gone five-over-par. An aggregate score of five-over-par (149) meant the two-time Asian Tour winner ended his campaign at 88th position, with the cut mark set at two-under-par (146).

This is the fourth time in ten events during this Asian Tour season that the Bangladeshi golfer has missed the cut while he has claimed two top-10 finishes so far.

A total of 71 golfers made it to the weekend rounds with overnight leader Daniel Pearce of New Zealand being joined at the top (seven-under-par) by three other golfers.
