New Delhi: The first Indian professional golfer to win the prestigious Indian Open, Ali Sher on Monday walked down memory lane, ruminating about his early playing days when golf was considered a "boring" game for the "oldies" and clubs used to made of "wood".
Sher, who along with two other Indian winners C Muniyappa (2009) and Vijay Kumar (2002), launched the Indian Open trophy for the 50th edition of the tournament, said Indian golf has come a long way since then.
"It has been 50 years and it is great for the Indian golfers. I remember, it was PG Sethi who was the first amateur to win the title in 1965. There was a big gap after that, before I won it in 1991," Sher said.
