Sandeep ‘Lalu’ Yadav, a talented golfer from Kolkata, put on a great show at Kolkata Amateur 2022, the eighth leg of the Indian Golf Union’s (IGU) Eastern India Amateur Golf Feeder Tour held at Tollygunge Club from July 14 to 15, eventually winning by one stroke. 

Yadav shot six-over-par in the combined round of both days, finishing on 146 and clinching the championship title.  

At the summit, just behind Yadav, it was a three-way tie between three of Kolkata's leading seeds — Tapash Sardar, Gurshaan Singh Grewal and Ribhav Verma, who all shot a seven-over-par 147, but it was Sardar who prevailed and sealed second place on the countback.

Yadav is a regular on IGU’s main tour and one of the best golfers from eastern India. He was one shot behind round one leader Verma, but played a remarkable final-day round of two-over-par to surpass the other amateur golfers on the leaderboard. 

Kolkata’s S.K. Rafick won the mid-amateur title with a score of 12-over-par 152, followed by Amit Kumar Saraogi who shot 164.
