Back in Chandigarh after winning the team title in the second junior inter-school golf championship along with fellow golfer Jairaj Sandhu,Chandigarh lad Feroze Grewal has his tail up. The 15-year-old golfer paired up with Sandhu to clinch the title,and is now targeting the PGTI tournaments in the Category A. Both represented DAV School,Sector 15,Chandigarh.

“It was morale-boosting to win the inter-school national championship. I have been playing along with Jairaj in the recent years,so we understand each other’s game well. The season has started on a good note for us,and facing teams from all over India made us put in more efforts. The qualifiers for a junior international tournament will be held in the first week of September and I am aiming to qualify for the tournament. The qualifiers will be held in Chandigarh and that will add to our advantage,” shared Grewal.

The fact that Grewal turned fifteen earlier this year meant that the golfer had to shift his category from B to A. But the change has not hampered the youngster’s rapid growth in the sport. Grewal has been training under coach Jesse Grewal at CGA range. He will take part in three IGU tournaments in September.

“Earlier this year,I made the shift from Category B to Category A. It will take some time to adjust in the new category. The three IGU tournaments in September will definitely help my game. Two of these tournaments will be held in Chandigarh and the third in Delhi. A good start in these tournaments would set the tone for me for the busy season ahead,” said Grewal.

Congratulating the school team,Principal Rakesh Sachdeva said,“I am proud of both the lads. They had been practicing really hard for this tournament,and I am delighted that the hard work has bore results for them. I hope both continue to bring laurels not only to the school,but also to Chandigarh and India in the coming years.”
