Jaipur, Jan 7 (UNI) Gagan Verma warmed up with a fine victory in the Pro-Am of the LG Rambagh Golf Club Golf Championship here today.
Gagan Verma emerged as the best amateur with a total of 38 stableford points. The team of Navratan Singh and Bhagwan Singh won the 2-man team honours. Deepak Sharma emerged as the Best Stableford points winner while Rajendra Jhakar was the runner-up.
Meanwhile, the country's top amateurs will fight for top honours in the four-day strokeplay event starting here tomorrow.
The LG RGC championship will see in action the likes of three-time Sri Lankan Open winner Simarjeet Singh, the in-form Manav Das, Samarvir Sahi, H S Kang and twice winner this season Abhishek Jha among other top amateurs vying for supremacy.
Gagan Verma and Tarun Ghogale are both in good form. Ghogale who had back to back second place finishes in Chandigarh and Pune respectively will look to do one better this time while Verma will be providing serious competition to the young guns.
Manav Das will be one player to watch out for in the tournament.
Das has been in sublime form this season and on current form looks all set to add another title in his kitty.
Manav who was forced to sit out for nearly a year due to a back injury came back solidly to win three titles this season.
Leading junior amateur Amanjyot Singh will spearhead the local challenge.
