Young golfer Zahin Ahmed

How did you come into golf?

I used to play cricket, but when my father became a member of the Shaheen Golf and Country Club in 2014, I started to take interest in golf. Later due to my father’s encouragement, I gave up cricket in 2016 and shifted to golf.

You became a club champion. Who inspired you most in this regard?

My father and uncle as well as my trainer inspired me most. The rest was due to my hard work.

I play four days a week. I come to the club at around 10am and play with my trainer. Then again I practice on my own in the afternoon.

Do you find it hard to strike a balance between study and golf?

The remaining three days that I don’t come to the golf club, I don’t go out anywhere else and concentrate on my studies. I give extra effort on my studies to make up for the time I spend at the golf club.
