Should Amrit Lal post his career best at the J&K Open on Saturday, it will be a renaissance of sorts.
The young Chandigarh golfer, who turned pro in 2020, is sole 7th, a rung above his best finish on PGTI, which was at the first tournament after the COVID restart in November 2020 in Panchkula/Chandigarh.
Whether or not he sets the personal benchmark at the Jammu Tawi Golf Course will be known, but a top-10 will surely stoke the fire reignited by idol Gaganjeet Bhullar.
Amrit going off the boil had to do with the muddle at his workplace. The pro golfer’s needs were stonewalled and his irregular appearances on Tour was because he was unable to convince superiors to grant him leave on tournament weeks.

His ranking plunged and so did the motivation to compete. Amrit quit a month ago, and is back to his first love. He missed the season’s restart last month, but it was for a reason.
The time away has been spent getting better under the watchful eyes of Gaganjeet at the Chandigarh Golf Club. All aspects were touched upon in those 20 days, and armed with better technique, Amrit can claim that he’s been never been more “comfortable” on the golf course.
