As the game of golf continues to grow, India has made concerted efforts to promote the sport they have come to love. Along with the growth in the sport comes the growth of the enrollment of Indian students in IJGA’s golf program.
In a recent article, The Times of India highlights the benefit enrollment in the IJGA has on junior golfers who value both their academic standing as well as their golf game. The Times of India spoke to Keshav Sharma of New Delhi, India, about his experience as an Indian student at the IJGA.
“I have got the balance I always wanted where I can pursue my passion without sacrificing academics. I think back and can never ever stop thanking my family for taking this very important decision. I consider myself truly blessed,” Sharma said.
The IJGA continues to focus energy on the improvement of not only golf and related technology but also the role it can play in the golf community of India. This effort is reflected in the ever-growing number of Indian students at the IJGA as well as in the efforts of IJGA’s business development team that actively seeks academy prospects overseas.
Vratik Sharma, also a native of India, turned to the IJGA’s sister company, the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) for an opportunity to grow within the golf industry as a Tournament Operations Associate. As Sharma pursues his Master’s degree in Sport Management, the IJGT serves as an organization to allow him to assist in the cultivation of young people with a passion for golf.
“I consider myself very fortunate to be working for the IJGT whose sole purpose is to have a positive and transformational impact on young people’s lives,” Sharma stated.
