Gaganjeet Bhullar has appeared in nine previous Indian Opens but is still looking for a first top 10 finish as he makes his way to DLF G&CC for this year's edition.
The local man is 5-for-9 with a best of T16. It came on the Palmer course at this week's venue although that's a complete different animal to the Player course where Bhullar was T43 last year. Ironically for a player known to start fast, it's poor first rounds which have cost him in this event. His last four are 74-77-77-77 and the latter three led to a WD and a pair of missed cuts. The 29-year-old is an eight-time winner on the Asian Tour, the most recent coming in October, so he's surely due for a big week in his home Open. He has form of 27-10-27 in his last three strokeplay starts since the start of 2018. Mar 6 - 8:05 AM

Gaganjeet Bhullar is a swift starter; will it make him a neat fit for the unique World Super 6 Perth at Lake Karrinyup CC in Perth, Australia this week?

The Indian likes a race from the blocks. Indeed, in his last 100 appearances around the world he has five sole or co-leads after 18 holes and has 13 times been T4 or better at that point. He has seven top five finishes in that period, including four wins, but none of them in European Tour events. Two of his early leads have come in his last four starts and he was very nearly at it again last week in Malaysia with a 68 for T12, but round three 66s in both his last two starts shows that he still have the capacity to go low. Just three European Tour top tens in 94 starts means it takes a leap of faith to see him being inspired to join compatriot Shubhankar Sharma on the winner's rostrum soon, but round one backers and gamers should note his name.

Gaganjeet Bhullar will this week seek to transfer Asian Tour form into the European Tour co-sanctioned Maybank Championship at Saujana G&CC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The 29-year-old is a seven-time winner on the Asian Tour with plenty of European Tour experience. Indeed he's made 93 starts and yet there are only three top tens in there. Admittedly he very nearly won the 2013 Avantha Masters (T2 on home soil), but otherwise it has been bleak pickings, especially given that the last of those top tens was in January 2014. He's in great form however, with nine top 20s in his last 12 starts, including victory in the Macau Open. It's also intriguing that he has three round one leads in that spell, two of them in his last three starts. Missed the cut at Saujana in 2009, but was T20 last year when T3 after a round one 66.
Jan 31 - 6:04 AM

Gaganjeet Bhullar has two wins in his last nine Asian Tour starts and took that good form into round one of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia, hoisting up a 6-under-par 33-33=66.

That puts the Indian T3 on the leaderboard and three shots behind pacesetter Marc Warren of Scotland. Bhullar won the Shinhan Donghae Open in South Korea last October before taking his tally of Asian Tour wins to nine with victory in November's Indonesia Open. The 28-year-old also has a Challenge Tour win so a European Tour trophy would be the next step in his progression. He's put himself in position to have a crack at it after today's opening lap of Saujana G&CC. He made his score with birdies at all the par 5s, completing the full set with red at 3, 8, 13 and 18. He made further birdies at 1, 7 and 17, dropping just a single shot at 6. Having played in the afternoon wave today, Bhullar will look to reel in Warren from his Friday morning tee-time.

Gaganjeet Bhullar is full of confidence as he prepares to close out 2016 with a seventh start in the UBS Hong Kong Open at Fanling.

Back in late 2013 Bhullar was a 25-year-old five-timer winner on the Asian Tour who had narrowly missed out on winning on the European Tour; it seemed he was set to make the step up in class sooner rather than later. But a ligament tear in his wrist in 2014 caused more than physical problems; he lost confidence and plummeted from 83rd in the world to outside the top 700. But he worked hard and two victories late in the Asian Tour season have him ready to reignite his ambitions. The second win came at the end of last month, in the Indonesia Open, and although he is just 2-for-6 at the Hong Kong GC, he did finish T13 12 months ago. If it doesn’t happen this week, the 28-year-old is still one to look out for in 2017.

Gaganjeet Bhullar takes his talents to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in preparation of this week's CIMB Classic.

The 28-year-old Indian cracked the field through the Asian Tour Order of Merit, where he currently sits in the 10th position. His spot in the rankings is in large part due to a victory at the Shinhan Donghae Open, his sixth career victory on the Asian Tour but first since 2013. Bhullar's most recent start on the PGA TOUR came at the 2013 WGC-HSBC Champions where he finished T63 (of 78) on the week. He also finished T33 at the CIMB Classic the week before that, so he'll have a bit of course knowledge on his side this week. Despite the knowledge, World No. 235 is still a long shot to contend this week in Malaysia.

Gaganjeet Bhullar will have some happy memories to draw upon when the European Tour pitches up at Black Mountain for the inaugural True Thailand Classic.

This week's venue has previously staged three Asian Tour events and Bhullar closed with a superb 9-under-par 63 to finish tied fifth in the first of those, the 2009 Black Mountain Masters. The Indian missed the cut in last week's Thailand Masters but that was his first start of 2015. Bhullar is a five-time Asian Tour winner and in his closing event of 2011 was a creditable T11 in the Dubai Open at The Els Club.

Gaganjeet Bhullar turned in a 3-under-par 37-32=69 for his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The Indian hasn't recorded a top 20 anywhere in over seven months, so it would be an upset if he continued on the pace he set today. After bogeys at 1 and 8, he peeled off five birdies the rest of the way to close four strokes back of the overnight lead. Bhullar was the last of 14 to conclude the day inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

Gaganjeet Bhullar returns to the CIMB Classic after sharing 10th in last season's edition.

Bhullar accomplished his top 10 at The MINES Resort & Golf Club, so the change of venue to Kualu Lumpur Golf & Country Club could alter his chances this week. Leading up to last year's tournament, he won the Venetian Macau Open two weeks prior. In his title to defense last week, he tied for 22nd. That could serve as a clue that his form isn't quite as strong this time around, but that he is third on the Asian Tour Order of Merit can't be ignored.

Gaganjeet Bhullar converted nine birdies in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, posting a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-33=63.

If we're learning anything during the two-tournament Asian Swing, it's that Bhullar is a baller. He tied for 10th at last week's CIMB Classic for his ninth top 10 in just 19 starts this year. That record includes two wins and a pair of seconds. The Indian signed his card today just one stroke off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. He rolled in four birdies each on par 4s and par 5s today, and has played his last 30 holes in bogey-free 12-under. He's 12-under 204 through three rounds.

Gaganjeet Bhullar carded a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his third round of the CIMB Classic to snare outright possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 11-under 202.

Bhullar also posted a 65 in his opening round, so he's grinding back from a second-round 72. In today's loop of The MINES Resort & Golf Club, he erased one bogey with seven birdies. Through three rounds, he's converted an eagle and 16 birdies. At the time he signed his card, he sat four strokes off the lead.

Gaganjeet Bhullar turned in a 6-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the CIMB Classic, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The 24-year-old Indian has enjoyed a solid year thanks to a pair of victories and another six top 10s on the Asian Tour. At The MINES Resort & Golf Club today, he sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 ninth holes with an eagle and five birdies. Bhullar arrived in Kuala Lumpur sitting 119th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
