World Amateur Junior Golf Championships 2018: India’s wonder kid Pranavi made it huge with her grit and won overall title

Posted by Admin 08 Nov 2018

India’s 15-year-old wonder girl Pranavi Urs has always proved that age is just a number. All it takes is a dream and the force of determination to make that ambition fly.

Recently, Pranavi made us proud by winning the overall title beating a Philippine boy Madcalayo Jolo Timothy in a playoff at the Thailand Singha World Amateur Junior Golf Championships 2018. Pranavi Urs won the Category ‘A’ girls title with a four-day card of 6-over-294 (74+71+74+75).





‘Striving to do better each time’







When caught up with Pranavi for a brief interaction, she enthused, “I want to keep enjoying Golf and keep striving to be a better player even when I turn into a Professional.” And how is she maintaining a balance between her studies and Golf?  “I am pursuing my studies through an Open school and that’s how I am able to concentrate both on my game and studies. I understand it takes a lot of hard work to be a proficient Golfer and my aim would be to pursue that goal of mine,” says Pranavi.




Earned the Golf scholarship and how!

Recently, the talented golfer was offered a $100,000 golf scholarship at the Albany Academy in the Bahamas for an eleven-month period.



Mitchell Spearman Academy reviewed her performance and areas of strength and on the basis of her perfect tournament record and steadfast improvement and awarded her the scholarship from November 2018.


Pranavi earned selection to the Indian team finishing second in the National trials held at Delhi in February last year. She also performed well in the 2017 Hero women’s Indian Open, finishing as the best performing amateur.



Pranavi was the leading amateur too at the Hero Women’s Indian Open in October 2017. The schoolgirl from Mysuru was the only amateur to make the cut in that event. She followed that up with a brilliant finish this year too, posting a 71 in the final round a few weeks ago.
