BANGALORE: The fourth leg of the Indian Golf Union-organised Toyota Carolla Altis South Zone Amateur golf championship will tee off at the KGA course from Tuesday. And the top two Bangalore amateurs — S. Chikkarangappa and Khalin Joshi — will vie with 82 others to hold aloft the trophy on June 24.
Part of the Indian Amateur tour calendar, the event being promoted by Sports Leisure Adventure Management Pvt Ltd (SLAM G), brings together a few new sensations — Vashista Pawar from Coimbatore and Siddharth of Delhi along with former No.1 amateur, Chandigarh's Abhijit Chadha — in a face-off against the Bangalore duo.
Also in contention will be Haryana Open winner Arshad Ali of Delhi and Kapurthala lad Ashbeer Saini, who has been threatening to take charge.
India's ace amateur S. Chikkarangappa, who holds the unique distinction of winning both the men's and junior boys' amateur titles together, sounded confident and optimistic. Winner of the junior Southern India Amateur championship recently at the very same course, Chikka is hopeful of carrying on the good work in the next four days as well.
“Toyota is pleased to be associated with this tournament. Golf is a fast growing sport globally and we are happy to support its growth in India. Golf is all about discipline, focus and the constant pursuit of excellence — values that are shared by Toyota the world over,” said Sandeep Singh, Deputy Managing Director, Toyota Kirloskar Motors, at the press briefing. — Special Correspondent
