Speaking on the occasion, Sidharth Arora, Director, Golfing Nation said, "It has been a wonderful experience bringing the World Long Drive Qualifiers to India. At Golfing Nation we want to create the best opportunities for Golf to grow and make the game more accessible to everyone. Our effort is to break the ongoing myth of the game being too financially demanding for a common man to take it up. It was an honour to work with Mr. Sohail Khan on 'Freaky Ali'. A movie based on Golf in India was never thought of. I am indeed grateful to him for showcasing our passion on the silver screen. We hope that this movie will bring awareness in the public and make golf the next big sport in India"

Golfing Nation seeks to create an environment that allows young golfers to consider pursuing the sport professionally and to make golf a household sport in India. The company provides two kinds of services: facilitation services and management services. To this end, Golfing Nation brought World Long Drive Championship to India for the first time ever and has provided Bollywood Consultation Services for 'Freaky Ali' to ensure that the movie could depict the sport as accurately as possible.

The winners were Khushmanraj Sandhu from the Open Category and Romil Sharma from the Masters Category. The winners will now represent India in the finals taking place in Oklahoma, United States later this year.

The splendid evening was held at The Leela, Gurgaon as the hospitality partner and Ambience Golf Greens as the venue partner for the World Long Drive Championship National Finals. (ANI)
