By posting four top-10s including two runner-up finishes at the Maekyung Open and Queen’s Cup in Korea and Thailand respectively, Bhullar has effectively silenced the critics who doubted on his ability to prosper consistently.


“I understand Golf is all about consistency and I will put in my best to work towards the same. It’s all about taking your game to the next level,” shares Bhullar.



What budding Golfers need to know



At a time when Junior Golfers too are making strides at the global level, what’s his advice for them? “I would simply say never give up on your dreams. Keep going and keep standing strong on your feet. Arm yourselves with loads of self-motivation, discipline and hard work as these attributes can help you achieve better in life as an athlete,” says Bhullar with a smile.




On PGTI events eligible for World Ranking Points







Recently, Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) got a shot in the arm after an announcement that PGTI events will be eligible for official world ranking points. The decision was ratified by the Official World Golf Ranking board, which met during the Open Championship.


Ask Bhullar on what does it mean for Indian Golf and he says, “I think it’s great news for Indian Golf. Now PGTI, that has been excellent in raising new talents, can attract international players. We will definitely see the prize money going up because of this factor. More money and much harder competition, that’s what we need right now.”


Clearly, the win is a tribute to Bhullar’s resilience and indomitable willpower.
