Chandigarh, January 25
An 18-year-old local girl, Jaipreet Singh Ghuman, brought laurels to the city after making it to the list of top 15 golf rules officials yesterday. The examination was conducted under the aegis of Royal and Ancient, an international body, governing golf worldwide and Indian Golf Union.
The Royal and Ancient body had conducted the examination here for the first time with the aim of filling the void of qualified rules officials currently felt at golf events in the nation.
Jaipreet stood eighth in the list after scoring 84 per cent in the examination. She said, “I had never thought of getting this chance. I feel honoured to be grouped with many knowledgeable and senior officials and I am looking forward to it,” said Jaipreet.
