New Delhi, Feb 6 (UNI) Promising pro Shiv Kapur today said he will be happy if he rewrites his own course record uring the Emaar-MGF Indian masters starting here from tomorrow.

Shiv Kapur, who is the Delhi Golf Club (DGC) course record-holder with 10-under par last year said ''If I can get anywhere near that, I'll be pretty happy. With all of the changes they have made to the course, I think the course record is intact. So I'm glad they made those changes so I can have that title for a while.'' Shiv was of the view that there are strong chances of an Indian winning this event ''I think it's very strong. We've all seen how Joyti plays on this golf course, if I was a betting man I would bet on Joyti. And Jeev has found some form, and Joyti's got probably the best record here , and obviously the list goes on.

So I really won't be surprised if there's an Indian winner.

A lot of the Indians are playing well and in good form.'' ''The advantage we have over here is we play for 12 months of the year, and nobody has really had much of an off-season and everybody is in the swing of things. For a lot of the European guys, they are coming out of the off-season and this is one of first few events they are trying to get into form. So from the Indian and Asian point of view, we have a bit of an advantage there.'' He, however, admitted that he was not happy with the changes done to the course '' No, I don't, like the changes actually. I approve of a couple of the changes, but some of the bunkers that have been put in, I'm not really excited about.

''I think the main character and the main hazard on the golf course is the bushes. And when you put bunkers like that in, you take the driver and the 3-wood out of a lot of the holes, especially the sixth hole for one where you have a couple of bunk.'' UNI HSB CS DB2011
