Apr 22, 2017: Junior golfer from Chandigarh, Aadil Bedi shows some scintillating golf at Suvarnabhoomi Golf club at Bangkok Thailand. Aadil shot brilliant 71-68-72-75 to finish with a total of 286 with 17 birdies over four days and finished as 3rd runner up.
Masaki Mikura of Japan won the championship with 280 and Taichi Kho of Hongkong finished runner up in boys 15-20 year old category. Four under on the 2nd day was the best card among 55 players mostly from Asia.
“I was leading the game till 14th hole on 3rd day. These tournaments help me to build my confidence before i proceed for IMG USA in July 2017″, said Aadil.
Aadil was already in top 1000 in WAGR (World Amateur Golf Ranking), based on his world ranking he is invited to play in Singapore International Amateur Championship at Singapore. Match will be played at Bintan Lagoon Golf Club from 21-24 May 2017.
“It will be a good opportunity for me to practice golf courses with international standards”, says Aadil.
Aadil decided to play in IGU Amateur Circuit of India, and hence not choosing to play any junior matches in domestic tournaments. He feels that Amateur circuit is very competitive in India when compared to Junior Circuit and there is a lot to learn from senior players like H.S. Kang, Viren Thapar and Anant Alhawat.
“I can qualify for Asian Games and Youth Olympic games by playing this circuit. My WAGR ranking is improving. I played 4 matches so far in domestic Amateur circuit and won Eastern India at Mumbai and finished at T7 at Haryana Amateur Golf championship at Panchkula Golf club last week.
My current ranking is T16 in IGU men’s category with 95 points. Final two summer matches will be played at Coimbatore and Hyderabad after international match at Singapore.
At present I am practicing on my swing with my coach Jesse Grewal, and the progress of my game is being closely monitored by my special golf coach Mr Bob Byman through online Videos’s at USA.
I need to improve my Course management skills, for which I am working with Mr Gursimran Singh Sethi. Also taking special speed training from Dr Gurmeet Singh, to become more fit for the important world cup in USA in July” said Aadil.
