Sharma gives lessons to bud­ding golfers

Manila Times - - GOLF - TNS

AS­PIR­ING golfers got a “master­class” in golf with Shub­hankar Sharma, the youngest In­dian to win a Euro­pean tour, at the DLF Golf Club.

Joburg Open, held in South Africa last month which is part of the il­lus­tri­ous Euro­pean tour. Shub­hankar is now part of an elite list of In­dian golfers, such as Ar­jun At­wal, Jeev Milkha Singh, SSP Chawra­sia and Anir­ban Lahiri, who have won a Euro­pean tour.

One of the up­com­ing golfers who was a part of the train­ing ses­sion Reyna Ka­pur said, “I thor­oughly en­joyed the golf ses­sion to­day. I was re­ally ex­cited to meet Shub­hankar since I had heard a lot about him. He gave us in­ter­est­ing in­sights on Golf which were re­ally in­for­ma­tive. I hope that I will also be able to achieve what he has done at his age.”

Shub­hankar was also fe­lic­i­tated for win­ning the Joburg Open that al­lows him a di­rect en­try to the up­com­ing train­ing ses­sion.

The six years Shub­hankar spent in Gur­gaon were vi­tal in shap­ing his golf­ing ca­reer as he trained at the golf course. “Golf has been my pas­sion since child­hood and I am grate­ful to the city for shap­ing my ca­reer. The city has an un­par­al­leled golf course and a state- of- the- art academy which has not only helped play­ers like me grow, but gives an op­por­tu­nity to promis­ing golfers to hone their skills,” Shub­hankar said.

“It is heart­en­ing to see the sport de­velop so much and the re­sponse by young­sters is a tes­ta­ment to this,” the golfer added.

For the bud­ding golfers, the op­por­tu­nity to rub shoul­ders with a pro­fes­sional player and closely watch his skills and mastery through a train­ing ses­sion was a dream come true.

“Shub­hankar is a world cham­pion in the mak­ing. His re­cent win speaks vol­umes of his ded­i­ca­tion to­wards the game. We are com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing him in his quest to ex­cel in the sport,” Aakash Ohri, se­nior ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of DLF 5, where the golf course is lo­cated, said.
