New Delhi: Indian golf has become stagnant due to the lack of ambition and hunger in youngsters to challenge the world order, veteran Shiv Kapur said.

India marked a new low with no fresh entries in the Asian Tour for the next season.

With Anirban Lahiri, at rank 71, being the only Indian in the top-100 list, the sport that thrived five years back with the successes of Shiv Kapur, S.S.P Chowrasia, Arjun Atwal and Jyoti Randhawa, has not lived up to its potential. (Lahiri Fights Back at WGC-HSBC Champions Golf)
