India's celebrated golfer Jeev Milkha Singh was on Thursday conferred with the IGIA Lifetime Achievement Award, instituted by Indian Golf Industry Association (IGIA) at the India Golf Expo.

Jeev said golf Bodies in India including Indian Golf Union (IGU) and Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) need to work together to further raise the standards of game in India.

"IGU's role in development of golf is paramount. Developing age is the most important part of one's life. IGU's role in development of junior golfers and imbue them with right knowledge and values needs to be appreciated widely. Those who wish to turn pro, PGTI offers a good training ground by holding a series of competitive events in India and preparing professional golfers to take on bigger challenges," he said.

Jeev called on the young golfers to dream big, develop mental strength and stay focused to achieve bigger goals.

Anirban Lahiri, SSP Chowrasia and Gaganjeet Bhullar who are making it big on international circuit hold much inspiration for youngsters, he said.
