The Arjuna awardee gives a comprehensive overview of the game to young players

(Golf news) Continuing its efforts to promote women in sports, Mastercard today organized a specialized workshop for aspiring women golfers with iconic Indian golfer Shiv Kapur. Titled Mastercard ‘Golf Clinic’, the workshop was held at the sprawling greens of the Delhi Golf Club, where Kapur interacted with 25 young players and gave them a comprehensive overview of the game.

Out of the 25 participants, five players were selected through a social media contest hosted by Mastercard exclusively for aspiring women golfers. Mastercard’s ‘Golf Clinic’ is a part of its larger endeavor to strengthen the Indian sports ecosystem and encourage young women players to excel in golf.

During the course of the event, Kapur led a knowledge-sharing session for players and guided them on the right posture, techniques, and equipment, so that they can improve their game. He then took them to the practice driving range, where he showed them how to putt the golf ball.

“India has given the world some of its finest golfers. It gives me immense pleasure to continue my association with Mastercard and work closely with the next generation of golfers. During my interaction with the young players, I was pleasantly surprised to see how talented and committed they are towards the game. I am confident that Indian golf has a bright future,” said Shiv Kapur, leading Indian golfer and Arjuna Award winner.

“Mastercard is committed to supporting women to pursue a career in their favorite sport. The company marked the beginning of the new year with a successful ‘Cricket Clinic’ for aspiring under-19 women cricketers with former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Through such priceless experiences, Mastercard constantly endeavors to strengthen the sports ecosystem in India by inspiring young players,” said Manasi Narasimhan, Vice President & Head of Marketing & Communications, South Asia, Mastercard.
