Biography

Came into the form of his life in early 2015, when he claimed his first two European Tour titles within a fortnight. First held off a strong field that included Lee Westwood and Bernd Wiesberger to win the Maybank Malaysian Open, helped by a stunning ten under par 62 in the third round. Then captured the Hero Indian Open on home soil, beating compatriot SSP Chawrasia in a play-off and rising to 34th in the Official Golf World Ranking. Became the first Indian to finish in the top five at a Major when he took a share of fifth place in the 2015 US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in August, and made his Presidents Cup debut a couple of months later. Less than a year before had earned his European Tour playing rights at the Qualifying School Final Stage, taking the 17th card. Opened with three rounds in the 60s to establish his position at the top end of the leaderboard through 54 holes, but found himself right on the qualifying mark on the final day with just a few holes remaining. Dug deep with two birdies in his closing five holes to finish two inside the mark. Won five times on the Asian Tour before his successes in Malaysia and India, which were co-sanctioned. Finished top of the Asian Tour Order of Merit in 2015. Enjoyed a successful amateur career in which he was crowned national champion in 2006 and 2007. Was introduced to the game by his father – a doctor in the army – and was hooked after taking part in a junior competition aged 12.
