The young Golfer, who studies in KR Mangalam World School, began his Golf stint when he was just 6 years old and he picked up the game brilliantly in a span of just two months. But not many know that he started playing Golf to enhance his Tennis swing.



Chaitanya shares gleefully, “I started playing Tennis at the age of 4 as my parents are Tennis enthusiasts. I still play Tennis with Team Tennis India at Siri Fort Sport Complex.  My tennis mentor Aditya Sachdeva suggested to play Golf too which would help me improve my tennis swing.  I developed an immediate liking for Golf and within 2 months of golf training, I started playing competitive tournaments.  I still play tennis but Golf is my passion now.”



With glee in his voice, he enthuses, “I won all 6 tournaments last month in a series to qualify for 3 international events -European Championship, World Championship & FCG Callaway World Championship. That’s the best Golf moment for me till now and I am enjoying every bit of it.”




‘I study when I am travelling in the car’

Playing Golf and capturing a series of wins has buoyed Chaitanya’s confidence considerably.  But being a junior Golfer comes with its own challenges. He shares, “Managing studies and Golf together is very difficult as most of the time I am playing tournaments. My school has been very supportive including my school's Chairman, Principal and Class Teachers. I keep all my syllabus books in my car so that I can study while travelling. My mom helps me at home to complete all my homework and all missed assignment in class.” 




When parents are the greatest support system

The wonder kid has quietly moved up the success ladder in a short span of time and he attributes his success to his parents. “My parents are my biggest source of inspiration and my support system. They are my pillars of strength. Both of them accompany me for all my tournaments despite of their hectic schedules.”



As he signs off, he says, “I wish to make my parents and country proud by winning the World Championship and my coach Romit Bose is really working hard with me to make it happen.” 



It's interesting to see how these young trailblazers are increasingly proving that age doesn't limit the boundaries of excellence. All they need are opportunities. Provide them with opportunities and witness and gallery of genius unleash before you.
