Early Times Report

Jammu, May 23: Jammu Tawi Golf Course, Sidhra (JTGC) has become quite a hot-spot for golfers across India and abroad. After Shubhankar Sharma, JTGC witnessed presence of another golfing legend, Ali Sher and welcomed him to the beautiful lush green 18 holes golf course located at Sidhra.
Ali Sher's journey to the top echelons of Indian golf is the proverbial rags-to-riches story. Starting as a caddie at the Delhi Golf Club, Sher went on to make it big in the sport. In 1991, Sher became the first Indian professional ever to break the foreign stronghold by winning the much coveted Indian Open title following which Sher was conferred with Arjuna award in the same year.
Sher's Indian Open victory was indeed a seminal moment for golf in India and the tonic Indian golfers were looking for. Ali Sher repeated the magic in 1993, when he beat Feroz Ali by just one stroke.
Sher's stunning victory opened the floodgates for a new breed of talented golfers and he was honoured with many club memberships including honorary membership of the Delhi Golf Club.
While his visit at JTGC, Sher interacted with Manav Gupta, Secretary, JTGC and other reputed golfers and his tips and guidance regarding golfing were admired by budding golfers of J&K State. Sher was impressed with the panoramic 18 hole golf course and praised the efforts of Gupta in its up-keeping.
JTGC felt privileged and honoured welcoming this golfing legend and will await his visit soon.
