Rahil makes his point, but with difficulty

Rahil Gangjee is always chirpy after a good day on the golf course. It could have been better but for the bogey on the 18th which pushed him back to T28 at the Mizuno Open. Nonetheless, there was plenty to talk about, but alas, the internet kept playing truant on Friday.

Amid several attempts to have Rahil put his point through as connectivity fluctuated, what came through is the focus has shifted from the swing to playing target golf and that reflects in his fifth consecutive under-par round. After rain washed out Thursday’s play, prayers are going out that the weather holds over the weekend, and it isn’t without a reason.

On offer are four spots to the Open Championship at Royal St George’s in July, and Rahil has thrown in his gauntlet. Should that happen, there are concerns over whether his visa will come through, but that is a bridge that will be crossed when the time comes.

For now, the focus is on recording another solid finish and a move up the money ranks of the Japan Golf Tour. Rahil and his friends have discovered a nice joint near their hotel, so it will also be Ramen for dinner.

Plenty coming up in the next session as Rahil will be probed on the celebration dinner in Tokyo Sunday last to mark buddy Shaun Norris’ win at the Golf Partner Pro-Am Tournament.
