Made 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. All four of his European Tour victories have come in India, winning the 2011 Avantha Masters, before successive triumphs at the 2016 and 2017 Hero Indian Open. His career 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 as S.S.P.
