I am Gaurav Tripathi from Varanasi (Kashi), Uttar Pradesh. I am 25 years old.  I have completed Masters in Economics from IGNOU in 2018.
I am an aspiring Professional Golfer.  I started playing competitive golf at age of 22.  Since then I have been participating in amateur competitions organized by Indian Golf Union. I also competed in various district tournaments.

I represented Uttar Pradesh in National Golf Competition Amateur in February and June months of 2018.

How am I able to manage sports and budget of household, currently?
Recently, I have qualified for a BPO job at EXL, Noida. Taking the decision to apply for a job is necessary because I started playing game in early twenties. I am not earning as an amateur golfer from tournaments. My mother and father are retired teachers from Navodaya Vidyalaya. I requested them to allow me to play game and prepare for Professional Tournament ,they support me completely with a time limit.  My elder sister is sole earning member of the family.
 As told above that a golf tournament consist of 5 days of playing with 5 hours each day per round in every week . I aspire to participate in more amateur tournaments to get prepared for upcoming Professional Competition.

This is going to be a long journey and I am faithful with your support I can work and prepare.  Never give up is mantra taught by my mother. I refuse to settle for anything else.
