Abhijit Chadha goes into the final day of the Players Championship in Panchkula five shots off the leader.

Abhijit Chadha’s immediate past is the near misses in Chennai and Jaipur, which could have translated into a fourth or even fifth win on PGTI.

Before him is what will unfold on the final day of the Players Championship in Panchkula. After matching Thursday’s best card of 7-under 65, Abhijit is five off the leader.

Previously, reflecting on the past or what lies in wait would have occupied Abhijit. Not anymore with the brand new mindset, which follows this line to the hilt. “Nothing is in your control except ‘now’. If you dwell too much on the past or future, you are not living in the present.”

Credit is due to Abhijit for maturing on the golf course and “knowing himself off it”, but the catalyst in the change is wife Ankita Tiwana, a former professional golfer.

The couple celebrate their first anniversary next month, and the crux of conversations has been that there is life outside golf, and a world outside it to be embraced.

Should Abhijit win on Friday, it will be the outcome of “the luckiest man getting on top”; if not, it will be on to the next week of competition and giving it his best all over again.
