Saddened by the shooting inside a Gurudwara in the USA a couple of weeks ago, Indian golfer Arjun Atwal is planning to raise awareness about Sikhs by distributing saffron ribbons during next week's Wyndham Championships — an event he won two years ago.

Atwal said he is deeply affected by the shooting at a Gurudwara in Wisconsin on August 5 when a gunman killed six people and injured four others. “I was in an airport with my wife. We were transiting to somewhere and I saw CNN, and I just had to sit down. I almost missed my connecting flight. It was really sad,” Atwal said. Atwal said his plan is a small initiative to heal the wounds.

Grover gets GM norm
India’s Sahaj Grover, who achieved his final Grandmaster norm at the World Junior Chess Championship, ended his campaign at the 16th spot after losing his final-round game.

The 16-year-old Indian lost to Aleksandar Indjic of Serbia. The consolation that Grover could draw from the event was his final Grandmaster norm.
