Good Sports: KOHLI FOUNDATION HELPS YOUNG GOLFER
Cricket superstar Virat Kohli started a foundation in 2013 to help needy children. One of the children who is benefiting from the Virat Kohli Foundation is a budding golf star, 14-year-old Arjun Bhati of Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
Arjun, who has twice won the Kids World Golf Championship in his age group, as well as more than 100 junior tournaments, will have his golf expenses paid by the foundation. He will be able to travel to international tournaments, giving him the type of competition he needs to potentially develop into a professional player.
“Golf is an expensive sport and middle-class people like me find it difficult to support kids after a while,” Arjun’s father, Bobby, told Times of India. “So it’s great that he is getting this support; his talent won’t go to waste because of any lack of monetary support.”
