Gaurav Ghei made history in 1997 by being the first Indian to qualify for the British Open. On Wednesday,he was thrilled with a brand new entrant — Gaganjeet Bhullar — making his way into the small band from the country to play in the world’s oldest Major.

“This is absolutely fantastic for Gaganjeet. He has been on a great run recently,and this is a terrific achievement for him,” Ghei said,speaking to The Indian Express.

Ghei was also glad that unlike him,Bhullar would be able to plan his journey to Scotland. “When I made it in 1997,my qualifiers finished in the same week as the tournament was to begin. It gave me no chance to think about what I was doing. Bhullar can plan his calendar now,may be play a bit around Europe to get used to links courses,” Ghei said.

The three-time Asian Tour winner,who had,however,failed to make the cut at the Major,said he hoped the youngster managed to make it to the weekend rounds.
