Indian Golf Champion: Jyoti Randhawa

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi.

The most experienced Indian golfer on the list, Randhawa was the first ever Indian golfer to reach the world top 100 rankings. However, due to inactivity, he is now currently ranked 275th in the world.

Randhawa has won eight Asian Tour titles, including historic victories at the Singapore Open and Volvo Masters of Asia. He would also go on to finish tied 27th at the 2004 Open Championship.

In 2002, Randhawa topped Asian Tour merit list, winning the best golfer from the continent tag. Despite his successes, the 42-year old has failed to kick-start his European Tour career.

Let’s hope Randhawa not only impresses on the European Tour, but also helps India to Olympic glory in 2016.
