Sachin enjoys putting

Ahmedabad: The golfing community got a taste of super celebrity as Sachin Tendulkar paid a visit to the Kensville Golf and Country Club on Friday.

Sachin, who has a Villa at the Kensville Golf and Country Club, took time out to go around the golf course and also interact with the players.

The players, fans, officials and members of Kensville virtually swarmed the senior cricketer, who seemed to enjoy himself in the midst of sportspersons and fans.

Tendulkar tried his hand at driving and then putting, too, alongside many of the internationals, like Shiv Kapur, Gaganjeet Bhullar, Rich Beem, Rahil Gangjee and Rhys Davies, who are participating here this week.

“I have been to many golf courses and even had an occasional attempt at driving range, but visiting a golf course while a tournament is in progress was something new. I really enjoyed, the golf course is a lovely one. I have seen other courses but I really liked this one,” Sachin said.

Asked if he would take up golf seriously sometime, Sachin said, “I enjoy racket sports and have not been able to play golf. My focus has been cricket, maybe golf will come sometime in the future.”
