After assuming the role of President of the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI), World Cup-winning former India cricket captain Kapil Dev remarked that he now carries much greater responsibility. On Thursday, Kapil Dev officially took on the position, marking a new chapter for the PGTI, the governing body of men’s professional golf in India.

In an interview with ANI, Kapil Dev expressed his happiness at becoming the new President of the PGTI. He emphasized the need to ensure that players receive increased opportunities to participate in matches.

“I am very happy, lots of more responsibility on my shoulders. Now I have to make sure all the players know we can look after them and give them more golf, so it’s more responsibility now,” Kapil Dev said.

He also urged the corporate sector to step forward and collaborate with the PGTI to organize tournaments.

“That’s what we like to do. See, in the winter, lots of corporate gold takes place all over the country and I would say a similar thing should happen to the top gold tournaments of the PGTI. Still, it’s a catch… we would ask more corporate world to come out and try to organise their own tournaments with PGTI,” he added.

Previously, PGTI CEO Uttam Singh Mundy expressed their honor at having Indian sports icon Kapil Dev assume the presidency of the organization.

“We are confident that the PGTI will scale greater heights under Kapil Dev’s astute leadership as his name has been synonymous with excellence in sports. His valuable experience as a professional sportsman and an accomplished golfer will be an asset for the PGTI, paving the way for the further growth of Indian professional golf. We wish Kapil Dev all the success,” Uttam said, according to a release.

Kapil Dev, known for his accomplishments as an amateur golfer, has served as the vice president and a member of the Governing Body of PGTI for the past three years. During this time, he has played a crucial role alongside the core team of PGTI in advancing and enhancing Indian professional golf.
