Shiv Kapur

He is the son of a stock broker in New Delhi. His parents wanted Kapur to study at Harvard University but Kapur opted for Purdue University as he felt it would benefit his golfing career. Was an All-American. Turned to Australian swing coach Kel Llewellyn during the summer break in 2005 and said it turned his game around. "I just started to concentrate on making the swing simpler," said Kapur.
Kapur signaled his arrival on the big stage after making a stunning entry into the professional game. He won the season-ending Volvo Masters of Asia in Bangkok in his rookie year in 2005. He enjoyed a strong 2012 where he posted four top-5s and one top-10 to end the year in eighth place on the Order of Merit. In 2011, Kapur did not miss a single cut in the first nine months. His highlight of the year was a tied for ninth placing at the season-opening Avantha Masters on home soil and tied for 10th finish at the ISPS Handa Singapore Classic. In 2010, Kapur contended at the SAIL Open and Hero Honda Indian Open, both held at his home course of Delhi Golf Club, before finishing second and tied for third respectively. He also lost in a playoff to Richie Ramsay at the South African Open at the end of 2009 but he was unhappy with his inconsistency and started working with new coach Jamie Gough. In 2009, Kapur endured a nail-biting season as he narrowly secured his card with a tied for third-place finish at the Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open, the penultimate tournament on the Asian Tour?s season. He also did well to keep his place in Europe following two top-10 finishes. He started 2008 brightly with a tied for fifth finish at the Johnnie Walker Classic on home soil despite playing with a bad flu that week but needed to make the halfway cut in the penultimate European Tour event in Spain to keep his card by finishing in 116th position on the money rankings, which was the cut-off for players. He returned to Asia and enjoyed a 10th-place finish at the Volvo Masters of Asia. In 2007, he came close to a second Asian Tour title when he finished tied second in the Indonesia Open. That performance was his best of the year and he registered another top-10 at the star-studded Barclays Singapore Open. He struggled in the middle of the season with back spasm and suffered a dip in confidence before picking up the pieces. He also safely kept his card in Europe in what was his first full year there by finishing inside the top-115 on the Order of Merit. In 2006, he continued to mature into a top-class player where he qualified for his first major at the British Open but missed the cut at Royal Liverpool. Also finished in the top-20 on six occasions. Picked up his biggest check at the Barclays Singapore Open when he collected $123,000 for finishing in the fifth spot. He sweetened his season when he earned his European Tour card for 2007 by finishing 116th on the Order of Merit. In his rookie year in 2005, Kapur captured his first major victory at the Volvo Masters of Asia in Thailand. He defeated compatriot and 2004 champion Jyoti Randhawa, winning with a tournament record of 20-under par 268. Named Rookie of the Year that season. After earning his Tour card from Qualifying School in January, 2005, he registered several impressive finishes, including a strong run of five top-10s over six tournaments. Contended in the Crowne Plaza Open in Beijing before finishing third and lost in a playoff to teenaged Thai star Chinnarat Phadungsil in the inaugural Double A International Open in Thailand. Kapur enjoyed a stellar amateur career where the main highlight was winning the 2002 Asian Games individual gold medal in Korea.
2013 Notes: Split his time between the Asian Tour, European Tour and European Challenge Tour playing a total of 29 events. Put a seal on a glorious first season on the Challenge Tour in 2013 when he won the season-ending Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club, moving from 20th to fourth place in the Rankings to earn a return to The European Tour. The year began as it finished, with victory, although the first one was a little closer to home as he won the Gujarat Kensville Challenge in the Indian city of Ahmedabad in January. Had lost his playing rights in 2012, bringing to an end a seven-year run on The European Tour. On the Asian Tour, played in 15 events and had a pair of 4th-place finishes at the Sail-SBI Open and Panasonic Open India. He finished the Asian Tour 10th on the Order of Merit with $289,871.
