The need is even more since Sunit will make a rare overseas appearance next week on the Asian Tour’s Singapore International. As a multiple-time winner on the Asian and DP World Tour, SSP’s advice will be imbibed as the young pro takes baby steps to emulate the illustrious member of the family.

If during Lockdown 2, when SSP was stuck in Kolkata and had to miss quite a few events on the European Tour, the conversations with Sunit centred on life, playing the 2016 Rio Olympics, and experiences on Tours across the globe, this time it will be about converting Sunit’s strong starts into a breakthrough on the Professional Golf Tour of India.

Sunit was part of the leader group with SSP on the final day of the PGTI’s season-ending Tour Championship in Jamshedpur, and watching SSP mount pressure on winner Udayan Mane close would have given Sunit a lot of insight on what it needs to close a tournament on the big stage.
