Arjun Atwal’s historic title triumph on the PGA Tour was the high point of an otherwise moderate year for Indian golf, during which seasoned campaigner Jeev Milkha Singh’s fortunes took a massive tumble due to niggling injuries.
Atwal, a former Asian Tour number one, scripted history by emerging as the first Indian to win on the US PGA Tour, at the Wyndham Championship in August.
It was resurgence of sorts for the Orlando-based golfer who had struggled with injuries over the past couple of years and lost his PGA card going into the tournament.
He was also the first Monday qualifier in 24 years to win a tournament on the PGA Tour. The victory secured Atwal an invitation to next year’s Masters Tournament, making him only the second Indian after Jeev to play in the year’s first Major at Augusta National.
