Since then Sharma has traveled the world, won twice on the European Tour, played all the four majors in a calendar year (first Indian to do that), became Asia’s No.1 golfer, earned Arjuna Award, and named the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year on the European Tour (first Indian). All in all, after a very successful year, he is back for one last time before going to WGC-Mexico Championship on the PGA TOUR, where he finished T-9 alongside two time Masters Champion Bubba Watson and Adam Hadwin.
