21 year old Kshitij Kaul won his 2nd pro title since November 2021 by shooting 71-63-67-68 to run away with the PGTI’s 2022 Mujib Borsho Chattogram Open played in Bangladesh.

For the 6 foot 3 inch tall New Delhi youngster who follows the “Golfing Machine” technique, which is also followed by current sensation Bryson de Chambeau on the PGA Tour, the 19-under 269 gave him his third professional title on the PGTI. The event was played at the Bhatiary Golf & Country Club.

Kaul, who showed tremendous promise as a teenage amateur, is now living up to his potential with another victory. He led by five going into the final round, gave the chasing pack no chance of closing the gap with five birdies on his front nine and picked up the winner’s cheque of ₹ 9,37,570 and moved ahead of Manu Gandas as the PGTI’s Order of Merit leader.

The tour’s next event will be the Rs 50 lacs PGTI Players Championship 2022 from March 15-18 at Tollygunge Club. Then the players move to Delhi for the US$500,000 DGC Open presented by Mastercard and another US$75,000 Asian Development Tour event at Classic Golf Resort, Gurgaon.
