“I putted extremely well under pressure, especially on the 17th, which was the turning point for me. This week has been an ideal preparation for my next event in Switzerland (Omega European Masters). I’ll now look to carry this form forward,” added the Indian.
After the Omega European Masters, Randhawa will be playing the Macau Open and then the Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open in Japan.
