Who is She? Amandeep Drall is a shining star in India’s Golf horizon. She has represented India in various international events like Malaysian Open (2013, 2014), Singapore Open (2012), Thailand Open (2014) and was a reserve during the 2014 Asian Games held in South Korea.
Merit List In December 2016, she earned the European tour card, which gave her full playing rights on the European Ladies Tour (LET) held at Marrakech, Morocco. Drall was adjudged the best Indian at the qualifiers with a seventh place. In 2016, she finished second in order of merit on WGAI (Women's Golf Association Of India) and was adjudged the player of the year, besides boasting of the year’s best stroke average.
The Discovery In 2007, the then 14-yearold Drall had attended a summer coaching camp at the Army Golf Course in Patiala. The coach noticed that she was a natural at the game. “He told my parents to buy me a golf set. I started playing over weekends. All credit goes to my parents for allowing me to give this expensive sport a try,” she says.
The Adrenaline Rush “I am a calm and patient person, so this game really suits my personality,” says Drall.
Next in Line Drall will be proving her mettle at the Honk Kong Open to be held in June this year.
