What they say
Krishna Poonia (mother, Olympian): The signs are good. He has improved a lot in the last one and a half year. I was with him in the US last year and interacted with his coaches, who felt that he has potential and is always willing to learn. This year, he has been able to perform better. I don’t want to put him under pressure. As an athlete, I know what it takes to motivate a youngster. We just hope he plays his natural game and improves gradually.
Manny Zerman (mentor): Lakshya has improved as a golfer since I have known him. The future is going to be a matter of how much hard work he puts in. He has a bright future ahead of him. I look forward to his continued progress.
