The runner-up of the 2015 Indian Open to Anirban Lahiri, Kapur has been one of the stalwarts of India Golf. The 33-year old has had a successful amateur career as well winning an individual gold medal at the 2002 Asian Games.

Kapur’s biggest professional victory came when he won the Volvo Masters of Asia in 2005. However, since then Kapur has failed to regain similar form, falling out of the world 200 list.

He also played the 2014 US Open, where he finished tied 23rd and the Open Championship, where he finished tied 73rd.

Kapur has shown enough prowess to ignite the discussion of a probable return to form.
