Sneha Singh always dreamt of becoming a professional golfer and representing India on the international stage. Towards this, she secured her first win on the Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI) as an amateur on her home course, Hyderabad Golf Club, at the age of 15. Another one followed at the Golden Greens Golf Club last month.

Taking to golf at the impressionable age of 3, Sneha started to make a mark from the junior events and the trend has continued well into the amateur events conducted by the Indian Golf Union.
The years of toil put in by the teenager under the watchful eyes of father Sanjay Singh, a former professional and now coach, find proof in the manner Sneha rallied to win the 11th leg of the WGAI’s Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour at Hyderabad in 2019.

The stage has begun to get bigger for Sneha. Representing the country at the Women’s Amateur Asia Pacific at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, scheduled from November 10-13, is her first international outing and an occasion to rejoice. Sneha intends to make it count as well. Ranked 129th on the World Amateur Golf Rankings, she is excited about what lies in store and wants to return home richer in experience.
