At an age when most youngsters look to hero-worship India's cricket captain Virat Kohli, 17-year-olf Golfing sensation Aadil Bedi is already garnering accolades from the captain itself. The young gun, who’s all set to make his debut as a professional golfer on the Asian tour at the Panasonic Open, will soon be hobnobbing with golf icons Jeev Milkha Singh, Shiv Kapoor, Jyoti Randhawa and Arjun Atwal.

Aadil has clocked 10230 hours of golf practice in his 292 outings in national and international matches and he has won 171 medals/ trophies for the country so far. He’s won the Indian Merit at the Indian Golf Union circuit 4 times at the age of 10, 12, 14 and 17. Recently at the Asian Games in Jakarta, he led the field for first 3 days and missed the medal by few shots and finished at T13.

 

 

Aadil said, “I have decided to turn professional so that I can qualify for the Olympics 2020 and represent my country.  PGTI and the Asian Tour have been kind enough to allow me to play a couple of events before Q school which is my next goal to secure a full card for the PGTI and Asian Tour.”

 

 

He further added, “I am truly grateful for all the support that the Virat Kohli Foundation has given me until now and am looking forward to going to the USA for a one-month advance psychology and golf training course in April after my class 12 board exams.”

 

 

Aadil has already represented the country at the highest level in his Amateur career including at the Eisenhower Cup, SSG – BLR Singapore International Amateur Championship (Winner), World Star of Junior Golf in the United States, Malaysian Amateur Championship (Team Runner Up), British Amateur Championship and Australian Masters of Amateur.
