The fourth edition of annual India Golf Industry Association awards Saturday honoured top contributors, including Gaganjeet Singh Bhullar, for the growth of the game in India in recent years.
The GIA awards, held in the backdrop of the 8th India Golf & Turf Expo (IGTE) South Asia's largest golf trade show, saw star golfer Bhullar, celebrated coaches Vijay Divecha and Nonita Lal Qureshi among those receiving awards.
The evening had an international flavour with the confluence of almost the entire ecosystem of the game including golf course owners and managers, golf tourism experts, equipment manufacturers, sports broadcasters, course design experts, tour professionals, governing bodies and government representatives together on one platform.
Arjuna Awardee Bhullar won the Outstanding Achievement as a Player award. The Kapurthala-born Gaganjeet won the 2018 Fiji International, a European Tour event, last year and also holds the rare distinction of becoming the youngest golfer on the Asian Tour to achieve nine career victories on tour.
