Brooksville: Arjun Atwal and Daniel Chopra, both former winners, are ready to start their long trek back to the PGA Tour as they tee up at the Second Stage of Qualifying School in Brooksville on Thursday.
Joining them will be young golfer Anirban Lahiri, who flew right across the world after competing in the Singapore Open last week.
Atwal, who has won once on PGA Tour, had a disappointing year with just one top-10 finish at the McGladrey Classic and three other top-25 finishes in 27 starts, out of which he made cut in only 15.
He made $348,770 and finished 167th on the Money List. He will definitely look to improve on his game.
Elsewhere, Jeev Milkha Singh, who withdrew after the first round of the Singapore Open, has also pulled out of the Hong Kong Open to let his injured right-hand finger heal completely ahead of the big events coming up.
