Siddikur Rahman missed out on the US Open qualification after he finished joint 34th in the qualifier at the Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England yesterday. The 27-year olf golfer posted a one-over-par on the second and final day of the qualification for an aggregate of one-under-par 143 which saw him trail the last qualifier by 5 strokes.
A total of 11 players, out of a field of 81, qualified for the second Major of the year which will be held in Los Angeles from June 14 to 17.
Swede Alex Noren and Scot Marc Warren finished top of the pile as Italian sensation Matteo Manassero was one of four players to emerge from a nail-biting play-off for the final places.
Noren and Warren cruised through the Qualifier on nine under par, two shots clear of their nearest rivals.
England's Lee Slattery, Frenchman Gregory Bourdy, Finn Mikko Ilonen, South African George Coetzee and Dane Søren Kjeldsen made up the remaining automatic qualifiers on seven under par, meaning that five players on six under par had to return to the course to battle it out for the final four berths.
All the 11 places were scooped up by either European or South African players while Korea's Sihwan Kim and India's Jeev Milkha Singh missed out by one and two strokes respectively. Siddikur was the best performing among the other Asian contenders.
