Ahmedabad, Jan 30: Gaganjeet Bhullar gave himself a good start to the week of the Gujarat Kensville Challenge as he led his team of young local golfers, Varun Parikh, Kairav Shah and Anshul Patel to a fine win in the pro-am here Wednesday.
Giving them a run for their money was the team led by Spanish professional Carlos Aguilar, who had Manhar Gohil, Pranay Parikh and Manish Choksi as his amateur teammates.
Bhullar said: “I had an excellent round, but I must give a lot of credit to the youngsters, who played so well. I was very impressed them. Sometimes when Anshul drove the ball, he seemed to be doing so like the famous Canadian Major champion, Mike Weir, who is a left-hander. Anshul is also a left-hander. Varun and Kairav were also excellent to play and sank some great birdies.”
On the tournament, he added: “I am feeling great after this round. I think I must have said some eight or nine birdies, but the real contest begins tomorrow.”
In the skills division, Sameer Shah won the ‘Closest to the Pin’ competition, while Parthiv Mehta had the Longest Drive.
