Kuala Lumpur: After winning two Asian Tour titles in a superb 2014 season, Rashid Khan has emerged as one of the region’s most exciting and he is getting ready to increase his winning tally at the Malaysian Open Feb 5-8. The 23-year-old secured his first triumph on home soil at the SAIL-SBI Open and then came of age by emerging victorious at the Chiangmai Golf Classic in Thailand.
He has credited mental coach Aparna Jain, for his success. “She (Jain) told me that I’m too aggressive on the golf course and that I needed to be calm and play easy,” Rashid said. “She said I shouldn’t put pressure on myself. That has really helped me. I would like to win more tournaments like what I did in 2014. Maybe win three tournaments!,” said Khan.
