Ashok Kumar.
India' hope in golf
Ashok Kumar surged to his second straight win on the Amby Valley PGAI Tour, courtesy a final round 69 at the Rs 10-lakh Hero Honda Open South 2004 played at the par-70, Bangalore Golf Club course.Ashok's previous win on the Tour came at The Hindu Open in Chennai. He finished six-over 77 and tied 35th at the $300,000 Macau Open recently.

When he was thrown out of the Air Force Golf Club in Delhi on charges of theft in 1994, Ashok Kumar's aspirations of reaching the higher echelons in golf looked all but shattered. For one, who belonged to Dalsinghsarai, rural area of Samastipur in Bihar, it was a shocking experience as he was trying to earn his livelihood by doing a job as a caddie.

After nearly a decade, the same caddie is proving to be an emerging professional in the country. Ashok finished fifth in the Indian golf tour with his earnings crossing Rs. 0.8 million in the previous season.
Ashok's fairy-tale journey is one among many such stunning stories if one considers the top golf professionals in the country.
cheers for dalsinghsarai !!!
