Sports Interview – Sgt Jit (PEW, 1 RSME)

What inspired you to start the sport?

  1. Golf requires a combination of physical skill, mental focus, and strategic thinking, which can be both satisfying and rewarding when mastered. As a sportsperson who had a knee injury, golf was a sport I could transition into within my abilities.
  2. My good friend Gaz Gurung, introduced me to golf in 2015 and I have never looked back. After starting this beautiful sport I have continued to play and enjoy golf as frequently as I am able too.

Where has this sport taken you within the Military?

Golf has provided me with countless opportunities. From first picking up a golf club, I have been fortunate enough to compete in local tournaments and play alongside Tri-service players on some of the world’s most iconic courses. The Golf courses I have been lucky enough to play including the prestigious Royal St Georges, and Celtic Manor Golf Club. Furthermore, I have been bestowed the esteemed privilege of representing the Corps in the annual Sappers Vs Gunners Golf match since 2018. I have also had the opportunity to represent the Army Golf Team at Newquay Golf Club in 2021.

What advice would you give someone interested in starting out?

Starting out playing golf can be a rewarding experience as you see your technique and skills advance. With the right mindset, practice, and guidance, you can improve your game and enjoy this lifelong sport. Here are some tips that could be helpful to someone just starting out playing golf:

  1. Take lessons. Consider taking lessons from a golf professional to learn the basics of the game. They can teach you proper techniques and help you avoid developing bad habits, giving you a firm foundation to progress from.
  2. Hone the basics. Focus on becoming proficient with the basics, such as grip, stance, and alignment. These fundamentals will help you build a solid foundation for your game.
  3. Practice regularly. Practice consistently, even if it’s just a few minutes a day. Repetition is key for developing muscle memory, improving your swing, accuracy and overall game.
