Chi­rag, Pranay emerge win­ners

The Asian Age - - Sport -

Chi­rag Paul and Pranay Puri with net scores of 72.6 and 72.4 walked away with the win­ner’s tro­phy at the Mad­hav Rao Scin­dia golf tour­na­ment at the DLF Golf & Coun­try Club in Gu­ru­gram on Satur­day. The Mad­hav Rao Scin­dia is a unique charity golf tour­na­ment to raise funds, which is used to sup­port so­cial de­vel­op­ment projects un­der­taken by the Mad­hav Rao Scin­dia foun­da­tion, the hosts for the tour­na­ment.

Along with the tro­phy both Chi­rag and Pranay also get an op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent In­dia at the pres­ti­gious ‘ Duke of Ed­in­burgh World Fi­nals’ at the ex­otic Wind­sor Cas­tle later this year.

The tour­na­ment saw par­tic­i­pa­tion from over 100 golfers from Delhi and NCR, which also in­cluded for­mer crick­eters Mu­rali Karthik and Madan Lal.

In the other on course com­pe­ti­tions, Manav Sar­dana walked away with the ‘ Trin­ity Long­est Drive’ con­test while Ricky Jaswal won the ‘ Best Gross win­ner’ award with an ex­cel­lent round of 77. Be­sides the in­di­vid­ual prize cat­e­gories the tour­na­ment also fea­tured the “Skins” for­mat, which pro­duced re­sults on ev­ery hole, and is a fast paced en­ter­tain­ing for­mat rarely seen in golf tour­na­ments in In­dia.
