And this is pretty much the only chance for a 150 million people nation of Bangladesh to qualify. Their golfer is just holding on.

It might even be the first time ever that any athlete from Bangladesh actually qualifies instead of participates with a wildcard..

Luiten started with +5 yesterday, had an amazing round today with 7 birdies and no bogeys in the first 14 holes to bring him well inside the cut....only to finish the round with bogey, bogey, bogey and 1 stroke out of the cut :facepalm:

So we have the first majors of the year coming up on the next weeks (Women's ANA Inspiration - old Kraft Nabisco- next week, and men's Masters on the week after), should the discussion be keeped on this thread or should we create a new one for this "big" competitions?
