SSP eyes European Tour card

 After enduring a rather disappointing 2013 season, Indian golfer SSP Chowrasia says he is ready for the new year with an improved swing and is aiming to regain his European Tour card with solid performances in the coming tournaments.

“I lost my European Tour Card last year. I hope I am able to get it in 8-10 events this year in 2014. The goal is to once again keep my card in European Tour and perform at a better level. Even if there is one good tournament, I will be able to get a full card,” Chowrasia said ahead of the Take Solutions World Corporate Golf Challenge. The 35-year old admitted that last year things didn’t go according to his plan on the European Tour.

“Last year, honestly it wasn’t that good. I was playing lot in Europe and I wasn’t doing that well. I was working on my swing and wasn’t fully okay and probably that was the reason for the dip in performance. But I think I am on the right track and it will be alright now,” he said. Chowrasia competed in limited events in Asia last year and is ranked 14th on the PGTI order of merit.

“I played very few events in Asia last year. I played only 11 or 12 events, so my position is also 14. My goal last year was Europe, that is why I played maximum events in Europe and did not focus much on Asia. But in Asia it isn’t that bad and where I had focused it wasn’t that good,” he said.
