Mysuru golfer Aryan Roopa Anand retains All-India Amateur title

December 13, 2021

Mysuru boy Aryan Roopa Anand retained his IGU All-India Amateur Golf Championship title defeating Yuvaraj Singh, at the Poona Golf Course in Pune.

In a humdinger of a 36-hole final in the 120th edition of the match play event, Mysuru’s Aryan scored a come-from-behind victory on the 37th hole.

The last amateur to win back-to-back titles was Bengaluru’s S. Chikkarangappa, over a decade ago.

Aryan is the son of Anand Kumar, who works with a leading telecom service provider and Roopa, a home-maker. Aryan started playing golf at JWGC, Mysuru and won the first tournament he played, which was the key motivator for him to start pursuing golf more seriously.

After moving out of Mysuru and shifting to Bengaluru, he started playing at KGA, Bengaluru. He started winning most of the South Zone Junior Golf Tournaments. Tarun Sardesai used to watch him practise at KGA and felt that he needs proper training and guidance, since then Aryan has been under Tarun’s mentoring.

In 2017, Aryan became a full time residential student at the TSG Academy.
