Biography

Created European Tour history in 2008 by becoming the first player to win on his maiden appearance as an Affiliate Member, when he triumphed on home soil at the inaugural EMAAR-MGF Indian Masters at Delhi Golf Club. Held off the challenge of Ireland’s Damien McGrane to become the third Indian golfer to win a European Tour event. Added a second European Tour victory in the 2011 Avantha Masters, where he capitalised on Robert Coles’ poor finish to win by one. After turning professional in 1997, he plied his trade on the Indian circuit until he was persuaded by his fellow professionals to join the Asian Tour. His victory in the EMAAR-MGF Indian Masters was his ninth as a professional, but by far the most lucrative of a career which was inspired by his father’s role as a greenkeeper at Calcutta Golf Club. Aged ten, he used to practise by sneaking onto the historic course – believed to be the oldest outside Britain. He subsequently became a caddie, before embarking on a career which now sees him divide his time between Europe and Asia. His initials stand for Shiv Sankar Prasad, although he is known to everyone simply as SSP.
