European golf legend Colin Montgomerie will be in the capital next week at the Delhi Golf Club for a two-day visit which will include an inter-school tournament, junior clinic and charity fundraiser.

"Colin is in prime form and seeing a player of his experience will be a treat for the 50 youngsters who are travelling from as far as Mumbai, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Dehradun for the rare opportunity to play alongside a living legend in prime golfing form," a press release stated.

Montgomerie, who is looking forward to this appearance at the Delhi Golf Club, said "India, like China has a huge potential for growth of golf and producing champions. This initiative will go a long way to incentivising juniors to strive towards becoming champions and I am committed to supporting the effort."

"Golf tournaments including many on the USPGA and European Professional Tours have been successfully raising funds for charitable causes for many years and it has been my privilege to be involved with a number of these. For me it's very satisfying if in some way my appearance in India helps raise funds for charities doing good work," added Montgomerie.

Among the top juniors participating are nationally-ranked Seher Atwal, Adil Bedi, Shubham Narain, Gaurika Bishnoi, Nishtha Madan and also 10-year old golf prodigy Shubham Jaglan of Delhi.
