Claimed the 17th card at the Qualifying School Final Stage to earn a first full season on The European Tour in 2015, having entered the week at PGA Catalunya Resort as the World Number 74. 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 handful of holes remaining. Dug deep with two birdies in his closing five holes to finish two inside the mark, and has set his sights on adding European Tour titles to the five he has won on the Asian Tour. Has triumphed 11 times overall in his native India. He finished top of the Indian Order of Merit in 2009, after 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.
