Kapil Dev adds weight to PGTI Board



In a welcome move for the PGTI Board, 62-year-old Kapil Dev, the legendary cricketer and the winning captain of the 1983 Cricket World Cup at Lords, has joined the Board of the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI). 

The tour hopes to draw on the creativity and appeal of Kapil Dev in attracting fans and sponsors to the tour that has struggled to grow in recent years. Kapil Dev said, “As a Board Member of the PGTI, I will try my best to promote Indian professional golf. All sports need promotion and since I play golf I’m delighted to be involved with it. We need a lot of support from corporates and the media to help give a further boost to professional golf in India.”

The retired cricketer’s love for golf is quite known, and one can find him golfing out with his friends in and around Delhi for leisure and all over the country for amateur competitions, including the IGU National seniors and has represented India multiple times at the Asia Pacific Senior Amateur Championship.
