The Golf Industry Association today announced the winners of the second edition of the Golf Industry Association Awards 2017, with Aditi Ashok expectedly bagging the award for Outstanding Achievement. SSP Chawrasia, who successfully defended his Indian Open title earlier this year and had two victories on tour last year when he also won his first overseas title at the Resorts World Manila Masters, bagged the award for the Men's Player of the Year (2016). The maximum cheers were reserved for veteran golfer Ali Sher, the Delhi Golf Club caddy turned pro-golfer, who was feted for his outstanding playing career. Ali Sher's win in the Indian Open back in 1991, was not only the first by an Indian professional golfer, but it completely changed the game in the country, with many Indian golfers tasting international success after him.
