It was Jyoti Randhawa's wit that saved the hostess the blushes. Introducing the ace golfer as Jeev Milkha Singh drew gasps from the audience but Jyoti came to the lady's rescue by quipping, “I don't mind being in Jeev's shoes, given the way he's been playing.”
Back from a well-earned rest, Randhawa will lead a pack of 22 pros in the finale of the 15th edition of the Business Today-Honda Pro-Am of Champions, at the Classic Golf Resort on March 27 and 28.
The only standalone pro-am event on the Professional Golf Tour of India calendar, the prize money is at an all-time high of Rs 1.7 million. The field will see top-notch CEOs with top professionals like Indian Open champion C Muniyappa, Anirban Lahiri, Himmat Rai, Digvijay Singh and Mukesh Kumar. Despite not being in form, Randhawa was hopeful of his chances in next week's SAIL Open. The Asian Tour event tees off at the Delhi Golf Club (DGC) from March 30. “Golf is like life, you have your good days and off-days. DGC is my favourite hunting ground and it's a preparation for international outings in China, Korea and Spain,” he said.
