Taiwan Open set to begin on Thursday
TAIPEI, Taiwan
India's newest talent S.S.P. Chowrasia intends to make amends at the Taiwan Open starting on Thursday after his disqualification misery here last week.
The Asian Tour rookie was turfed out of the Taiwan Masters after failing to sign his second round scorecard, denying him the chance to take a three-stroke lead into the weekend. But Chowrasia is determined to bounce back in the US$300,000 at the Sunrise Golf and Country Club in Yangmei, Taoyuan County this week.
Other Asian Tour regulars in action include Thailand's Prom Meesawat, and former Taiwan Open champions Danny Chia of Malaysia and American Andrew Pitts.
Silva grateful
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay
Former Uruguay striker Dario Silva expressed his gratitude on Tuesday for the support he has received since having his lower right leg amputated after a car crash last week. The 33-year-old said Diego Maradona had been among those to call his family after the accident in Montevideo on September 24.
Silva, who was out of contract at the time, suffered an exposed fracture in his right leg after his pick-up truck collided with a lamppost on Montevideo's sea front and doctors said they had no other option but to amputate.
Golf sponsorships
TAIPEI, Taiwan
The private Golf Project Hope announced Tuesday a new campaign to sponsor three Taiwanese golfers to attend golf tournaments in the United States and Japan.
This year's sponsored golfers are the top three winners of the 2006 Jaguar Taiwan Trophy. Champion Lu Wei-chi and third place runner up Lin Wen-hong will compete in tournaments held in Japan, while Chang Ze-peng, who took second place, chose to compete in the U.S., a spokesman for the association said.
