She got really interested in the game, started to go with her dad regularly. She would practice for hours by the side while her dad played.
At 6 yrs she won the qualifier to the US KIDS GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP in Nigeria. From there on she never looked back.
Avani was the Order of Merit winner in South Zone Junior Golf Championship in India : 2015 & 2017.
The next 5 years she achieved a Top 5 finish at the U.S Kids Golf Championship held at USA & Scotland.
Last year her dad noticed her game started to drop a little. He immediately quit his high flying corporate job & dedicated the next 8 months to working with her.
Since then Avani won 5 of the 7 Indian Golf Union tournaments. She achieved the India Order of Merit leader in India in her category in 2019.
So happy & proud to share Avani just finished 3rd at the U.S Kids Golf World Championship 2019 in the girls 12 year category, 129 girls participated from all over the world.
In the 20 year history of this tournament she is the best performing among girls from India.
Avani’s dream is to win the 2024 olympic gold.
Please join me in congratulating Avani & Prashanth M S
