Those who have watched Asara closely vouch for her on-course composure, a key aspect that, together with her prodigious talent, makes her a very special prospect. 


The Golf wonder kid has been playing the sport since she was four and a half years old and it was her grandfather who served as her inspiration to take up Golf. “Golf runs in my family as we all, including my wife, my son Akshay and daughter-in-law Richa, have a passion for the game. So when Asara wanted to play the sport, I told her that you’re too small. Now I realise why she yearned to play the game so much,” shares the proud grandfather with a smile. 



Interestingly, Asara has got a talent scholarship from Delhi Golf Course. Reveals Commodore Sawhney, “Her parents are the driving force and take out a lot of time to travel and be with her at several tournaments.”  



It’s really amazing to see young and talented kids from India going great guns in the global Golf circuit.
