Shiv Kapur has been drawn against local man Richie Ramsay in the first round of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play event in Scotland.
Ramsay is the favorite to win with most UK bookmakers as Murcar Links is in his home town of Aberdeen and he holds the course record there. At least Kapur heads to the Aberdeen links with some confidence restored. The Indian had missed seven cuts on the spin through May and June but snapped that sequence with a T41 in the Scottish Open and improved to T24 in last week's Omega European Masters in Switzerland. The Kapur v Ramsay match is the fifth game out at 08:40 local time on Thursday. Jul 28 - 4:11 PM

Shiv Kapur finds his way to the Northwest for this week's U.S. Open.

The 33-year-old Indian spends most of his time on the Europea Tour, currently ranking 117th in the Race to Dubai. He's missed four straights cuts internationally and hasn't finished inside the top 10 since the Venetian Macau Open last October. Kapur collected a T23 at last year's U.S. Open, but it would be surprising if he matches that performance this week.

Shiv Kapur authored a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-35=66 to put himself in contention after the first round of the True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain.

The Indian missed the cut on this course when he contested the Asian Tour's 2010 Black Mountain Masters but, despite nursing a cold, it was a different story today. After two opening pars at 10 and 11, Kapur got hot and circled five birdies in his next seven holes for an opening nine of 31. He quietened down after that and added just one more birdie but kept the bogeys off his card to complete an excellent opening lap. Kapur has cashed just twice in four starts so far in 2015 and this was his lowest round by two shots.

Shiv Kapur navigated Doha Golf Club in 4-under-par 35-33=68 and at 6-under 138 is just three off the lead at the Commerical Bank Qatar Masters.

Every time the Indian missed a green, he scrambled for par and those five up and downs kept a bogey off his card. An opening nine of 35 contained a birdie at the second along with eight pars. He hit the gas coming home and circled birdies at 10, 12 and 14 to move into the top 10. Kapur hasn't had much success at Doha in his previous eight visits. He's never made the top 25 while today's 68 is only the second time in his last 15 laps that he's broken 70.
Jan 22 - 6:54 AM

Shiv Kapur picked up five birdies in a third-round 1-over-par 33-38=71 at the U.S. Open and is the first to post 4-over 214.

Kapur looked to be the favorite to post the first sub-70 score in the third lap around Pinehurst No. 2, making the turn with four birdies to just two bogeys in the bank. The law of averages eventually won out, as bogeys on 12, 14, 15, and 16 were only marginally erased by a birdie at the par-4 18th. Still, it's a nice round. He split 13 of 14 fairways but only managed 10 GIR.

Shiv Kapur is set to make his U.S. Open debut at Pinehurst No. 2 this week.

Kapur advanced out of the Walton Heath international sectional in Surrey, England. While his recent form leaves much to be desired, he had a nice run late in 2013 that included a victory in the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final and also tied for second at the Foshan Open. He enters the week 177th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Shiv Kapur will compete in the CIMB Classic.

Kapur enters the week ranked 14th on Asian Tour Order of Merit and 206th in the Official World Golf Rankings. His current form is solid, fresh off a T2 at The Foshan Open. His highest profile start this year came at The Open Championship, tying for 73rd.

Shiv Kapur carded a 3-under-par 30-38=68 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

The Indian earned his tee time at Muirfield via Local Final Qualifying on July 2, but he's no stranger to the global scene. What was surprising was how he started today's round. After going birdie-birdie-birdie at holes 1-3, he settled for a par at the par-3 fourth. Kapur then rattled off three more birdies at 5-7 to sit atop the leaderboard for a while. Alas, he'd play his final 12 holes in birdie-free 3-over with one bogey and a double to finish two strokes off the overnight lead.

Shiv Kapur completed 36-hole Local Final Qualifying at Dunbar in Scotland in 7-under-par 69-64=133, good for co-runner-up honors and one of three berths into The Open Championship.

Three golfers at each of four sites will gain entry into the major today. Kapur went bogey-free in the nightcap to secure his second start in The Open (MC, 2006). John Wade matched Kapur's aggregate with respective rounds of 70 and 63, also going bogey-free in his second lap of Dunbar. Wade missed the cut at St. Andrews in 2005 in his only previous appearance in the major. Amateur Grant Forrest was the medalist at 8-under 67-65=132. He offset three bogeys with 11 birdies. Forrest is currently 77th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Notables that failed to qualify include: 134--Robert Dinwiddie ... 135--Kevin Phelan ... 141--Elliot Saltman ... 142--Jin Jeong.
