In conversation with Kurush Heerjee

Amateur champion Kurush Heerjee qualified directly for the national amateur tour today. He took the champions trophy with pride at The Tollygunge Club with 6 birdies in his record.

Which is your best under?

I have scored like this in a tournament before but this is my best under.

What your maximum number of Birdies?

Today I won with 6 birdies and this is my maximum till now.

What are your plans this year?

My plan is to play the main amateur tour and if I can into a few pro events. That will be nice. I also want to play for India really badly. This year is my last as an amateur and I would love to get it done by it at the end of this year. I look to turn pro next year.

What were you thinking standing on the 18th tee?

I just want to pour into the green so that I could get a chance to putt. I just wanted a putt. If I get into the playoff it was okay but I don’t want to leave any work as a player to get it.

What was going on in your mind when you made the putt?

I, to be very honest, somehow thought that it would go in because it was my favorite line. I loved the putt. All I was like...put it hard enough.

What does this win mean to you?

Quite big. I have been playing quite badly in the last month. My coach and I have been working hard on it and last evening he told me I scored 6 over. I am just happy this morning. It means a lot because the main event starts next month. I have gained confidence now. I needed to shoot really a low number after having a stupid round yesterday. I wanted to get it done.
