Bhavna Shetty to represent India

BANGALORE, APRIL 29. Teenager Bhavna Shetty from Bangalore Golf Club has been selected to represent India in the Asia Pacific Junior golf championship to be held at Djakarata, Indonesia from May 4 to 7. Bhavna is part of a four-member junior girls' team with the others being Manavi Halwasiya from Kolkota, Vaishavi Sinha from Noida and stand-by Meghana Bal from Delhi.

The top five ranked junior girls from last year's merit list were called for selection trials held between April 13 and 16 at the Jaypee Greens and ITC Classic Course at New Delhi.

Bhavna finished runner-up in the selection tournament to cement her place in the Indian Team. Manavi Halwasiya took the top ranking.

The same team will also play in the Asia Pacific Masters tournament for which the venue is yet to be decided. Bhavna has earlier played in the Asia Pacific Juniors tournament when it was held at Taipei in 2002. However she had an individual entry that year. Last year's Asia Pacific Juniors tournament was cancelled due to the SARS scare.

Bhavna is the first girl from South India to play for the National Junior team. Bhavna had been part of the Indian Golf Union Advanced Camp, which is currently underway at the Eagleton Golf Resort. The IGU Advanced camp commenced on April 25 and will end on May 1.

The other junior players at the camp are: Anirban Lahiri, Abhishek Jha, Darshan Veerarghavan, Pradyuman Prakash, Prabhat Jadhav, Tarun Veeraraghvan, Bharat Kollapudi, Praful Chand, I.L Alaap, Rahul Ravi and Sonam Chugh. The coach is Vijay Divecha.
