Prince Bainsla’s gritty show on Day 2 of the NCR Cup 10th Junior Golf Tournament is testimony that patience and hard work can transcend any barrier.

The 13-year-old, a part of the Delhi Golf Society’s (DGS) Camp of Excellence, is also a recent recipient of a brand new golf set which was procured under an initiative by DGS and Good Samaritan Ashish Jain.

Armed with the new clubs, the wiry golfer shot to top of the leaderboard in B Boys with a card of 2-under 70, nine shots better than his opening show at the Delhi Golf Club’s Lodhi Course.
