Kahlon hoping to revive career in Aamby Valley
Mumbai, May 10 (UNI) Since his triumph in the 2002 Hero Honda Masters, Harmeet Kahlon has been haunted by the ghost of the greens and despite missing seven cuts in 10 starts this season, the Indian pro hopes to revive his career at the inaugural 400,000 dollar Aamby Valley Asian Masters starting here tomorrow.
''I've had my ups and downs, I'm plugging along. My coach Jonathan Yarwood and I have worked on a couple of things and you need time. It doesn't happen overnight,'' said the golfer who shot to limelight in 2002 but since then, had a very slow progress in the Asian Tour.
''At times it's been frustrating but the key is you have to manage your frustrations and emotions. I curse at myself at times and get irritated with my wife which is not so good but she's been a great support,'' he admitted.
''I'm confident of my capabilities and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter everyday,'' he added.
Also hoping to resuscitate his career here will be Australian Jarrod Moseley, the forgotten man in golf.
The 33-year-old player lost his card in Europe last season and failed to earn full playing rights on the Asian Tour.
''It has been a bit frustrating. I only have myself to blame.
It's a matter rebuilding and I'm not regretting anything that I've done,'' said Perth-based Moseley, who claimed his first major victory at the Heineken Classic in 1999 and played regularly on the European Tour with some success.
Moseley said his focus on his family saw him take his foot off the pedal and he paid dearly for it.
''I know how to win and I just need to get into position to win again. I haven't played for six weeks but have been practising a bit. I'm just looking forward to getting back out there and putting in a good performance here,'' he said.
