I've been waiting for this win for two years, gushes Bhullar

The 20-year-old clinched the title with an emphatic two-stroke victory over Australia’s Adam Blyth at the Damai Indah Golf -- Bumi Serpong Damai course on Sunday.

“I’ve been waiting for this for the past two years. I played really well and I had a very good finish with a good score,” said Bhullar.

Victory was worth $63,400, moving the Indian up to the 10th place on the Order of Merit.
From his days as the country’s top amateur in 2004 to winning the team silver medal at the Doha Asian Games in 2006, Bhullar’s talent has been unmistakable.

The youngster from Kapurthala had enjoyed ten amateur wins in the domestic circuit before turning professional in 2006. Before his win in Jakarta, Bhullar had posted three top-10s on the Asian Tour this season. He was also the youngest Indian to qualify for the British Open where he failed to make the cut a fortnight ago.

“I will be gunning to be the top Indian golfer now,” said Bhullar. “My experience from playing with the big boys where Tiger, Ernie Els and Sergio Garcia were competing has certainly helped me a lot,” he added.
