Golf's newest star, 21-year-old Shubhankar Sharma, scores special Masters invite

India's Shubhankar Sharma, fresh off an impressive outing in his PGA Tour debut that made the golfing world take notice, has accepted an invitation to compete in next month's US Masters, the tournament organisers said on Tuesday. There are holes you can attack and others where you have to be cautious.

"What have I done in the last two years?" O'Donoghue looks at the histories of both sports in India and plays a round at the exclusive Delhi Golf Club with cricketing legend and keen golfer, Kapil Dev, to compare the similarities and differences of both sports.

"Gurbaaz Mann was on my bag for three weeks and after I missed the cuts at Oman and Qatar, I told him, Gurbaaz I have to play the Masters and I remember before sleeping every day we used to have this night show watching the Masters like the 1986 Masters etc and so we had a Masters night every night at WGC", Shubhankar said. Nothing that I would write home about. I know that if I play my best, I' am good for a top five, or even a win at the Masters Tournament. So, to see someone who has earned his stripes and has won not once but twice, and with his performance last week, by all means he deserves all the attention he is getting. "If anything it inspires me". "I think last year it played harder and this year it would have better scores but we have to see how it all pans out".

Playing at Augusta is likely to put Sharma firmly in the spotlight with the crowds expected to be bigger than anything he has experienced before. That ranking got him into the Mexico Championship to begin with.

The roof has the ability to open in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h (30 mph) and rises out of a folding roof casing. And we have to say, the slick looking rear spoiler adds more charisma to the design with the roof folded in.

"2018 has been pretty good so far, the first few events this year, I put myself in contention but I didnt get the job done in the weekend". Playing with him did not overawe or faze me. But I think I m doing better because I changed some of my game plan, so hopefully I would do better this year, so let s see.

Sharma is now confident enough to wish for the ultimate challenge in terms of pairing at Augusta. I don't think I'll be awestruck by any player. "It would be great if I am paired with Tiger (Woods)".

In-form Shiv Kapur reckons it would be tough for any Indian golfer to outclass their worldwide counterparts and retain the 2018 Hero Indian Open title at the tricky DLF Golf course. Anirban Lahiri had also won the title in 2015.
