TAKE ‘celebrates golf’

TAKE Solutions Limited, which has been supporting talented golfers, felicitated five of them — S.S.P. Chawrasia, Shubhankar Sharma, Khalin Joshi, S. Chikkarangappa and Chirag Kumar — at a function here on Friday.

With Shubhankar clinching two European Tour titles and Chawrasia getting the Arjuna Award last year, TAKE Solutions thought it appropriate to “celebrate golf.”

Speaking at the event, H.R. Srinivasan, vice-chairman and managing director, TAKE Solutions said “it was an important occasion for us as we celebrate the success of Indian golf.”

In a panel discussion moderated by Shaili Chopra, speakers discussed ways to take the sport to the masses. Chawrasia said things have improved considerably since he started playing golf.

“Golf has come a long way but consistent corporate support is needed,” he said.

Ishwar Achanta, International referee and Indian Golf Union council member, said there was an urgent need to build 3-hole and 9-hole courses in universities and colleges.
