Gaganjeet Bhullar is trying to come to terms with his newfound stardom. Following his victory in the Indonesia Masters last month, the 21-year-old is ceaselessly attending one function after another, with the latest one fetching him a glittering Mercedes on Thursday.

“A Merc is a dream car and to drive it is just out of the world,” said an excited Bhullar after receiving the keys of the swanky C-Class.

The ace golfer, who was part of the Indian team that won silver at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, seemed quite enthused at the prospect of golf becoming a part of the Olympics.

“I'm not sure about London 2012, but golf is sure to be in the 2016 Games… I am glad it is being included. I hope to win a medal for the country,” Bhullar added. But will golf's inclusion in the Olympics reduce the charm of the traditional Majors?

“I don't think so. The Olympics are held once in four years and, as much I would love to win a medal for the country, wearing the green jacket or lifting the British Open trophy would always be my ultimate goal,” he said.
