Mcllroy invites Sharma for practice round

Gurugram, March 8

Shubhankar Sharma continues to live a dream as four-time Major champion and former world No. 1 Rory Mcllroy has extended an invitation to him for a practice round at the Augusta National Golf Club before the Masters begins in April. 

“I got to know now, I am very happy. He is an idol and I would love to play a practice round with him,” Sharma said. “Let’s see when I get there. I have never met him but obviously have seen him, we played in the same tournament in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I have followed him for many many years so it would be nice.”

Mcllroy said, “I’ve been able to watch a little bit of him on TV. He’s won a couple times on the European Tour, had a good chance to win and played in the final group last Sunday with Phil Mickelson. Playing in the Masters will be a great experience and my best advice for him is to just embrace the week and have fun.” — PTI
