student at a private university in Dhaka, Samaul is trying to juggle between his studies and his passion. Once he is done with studies, Samaul says he would take golf as profession.

Tell us about your golfing life.
It’s been six years I have been playing golf. I first played at a ground in Chittagong with my father. He gave me a stick and said swing as much as you can. That’s how it all started. Currently I’m studying at Independent University, Bangladesh but at the same time I’m playing golf regularly.

Do you discuss golf with your father?
We discuss a lot. Whenever he learns anything new, he shows that to me and I get inspired from that.

What is your current golfing routine?
I try to play every day. I try to make sure that I maintain a routine where I can play twice a day.

You are studying environmental science, which is a demanding subject. Does playing golf take a toll on your studies?
If you can maintain a routine, golf doesn’t come into conflict with studies. We can practice early in the morning and, with the help of night golfing, after sunset too. So it is possible to manage both things together.

Do you find any connection between the game and your subject?
Interestingly, yes. There is one common thing among the two. We play on green grass while environmental science covers a lot of field trips and adventures. My subject covers a lot of walking along places such as open fields or hilly areas which we have to do while playing golf too.

Do you have any plans on turning pro?
When I started playing golf, I had this aim of turning pro one day, and I still have that aim. May be I am not able to devote enough time to the game currently, but I will try to make more time to golf because it is my first priority.

Whose game do you follow most?
Basically I follow my father’s game. He is a joyous person and my encouragement towards golf. Even though we cannot match our schedule always, I try to follow his game closely. Secondly,I follow Siddikur Rahman a lot. I idolize him as a golfer.

Your favorite iron?
My favorite iron is seven, which used to be called master club. I realized that seven is the perfect one for me at this stage to take my game ahead.

Which are your strong and weak points in golf?
I think tee shot is my strength. If I can take a good tee shot, then everything else goes well. My weakness is short putts. It is sometimes hard for me to precisely gauge the effort needed to sink a short putt. I would like to do some training on this issue to raise my game.

What do you have to say to your friends who don’t play golf yet?
Most of my friends in fact play golf. Those who don’t, I would ask them to come to the KGC. Even if they don’t want to play the game, they should just watch and try their hands on it. They can go to the indoor academy, and I believe if they watch the game from up close, they will definitely get interested.
