From Golf Fairways to Fine Wines

V Sanjay KUMAR compares his peak experiences as an amateur golfer with the many high points of his wine journey

As an amateur golfer, my career highlights included a single-digit round, an eagle on a par 5, and a hole-in-one that cost me a packet after. What topped all these was a trip to the state of Georgia in the United States. I won a public lottery, travelled to the USA, and spent a whole day watching the very best golfers compete at the Augusta Masters. In the vast beautiful grounds was Tiger Woods. It was a stunning experience to watch him compete.
