What makes you different?

The fact that I have achieved what I have in my golfing career with the limited resources available in Pakistan with respect to golf training/coaching proves that I am the kind of person who will achieve his goals regardless of the circumstances and obstacles. I am a very goal oriented person. My first goal was to be the best in my age category in Pakistan, which I achieved in the under 12, under 14 and under 16 categories. My next goal was to represent my country internationally which I achieved by becoming the youngest golfer to represent Pakistan at the age of 14 year 7 months and 9 days. So if I set my mind to achieve something I will put in my utmost effort to do so.

Why do you want to compete in college?

My next goal is to play college golf in the US. I believe that to be able to compete at the highest level in golf it is imperative for a person to play college golf. So my reason for wanting to play college golf three fold. One, it a goal that I have set for myself. Two, the statics tell you that playing college golf dramatically improves ones chances of playing golf professionally at a high level. Three, I feel that by playing golf at a good college I will be able to get the kind of training that has been lacking in my golfing career in Pakistan i.e, to learn from a knowledgeable and dedicated team of coaches the finer points of the game to take my game to the next level.

College Goals?

To be at a college where I can play for the team on a regular basis and contribute to the team’s success and not be just a member of the team. Other than golf my priority is to finish school, get my degree and not just use school as a springboard to become a professional golfer. I would love to be able to contribute to my school and the surrounding community in ways other than golfing achievements.

Anything else we should know?

Besides being goal oriented I am a very hard worker who has learnt to manage his time well. I have learnt to practice and play hard and smart instead of just practicing and playing hard. I like to set S.M.A.R.T goals and not just goals. I love the challenges that the game of golf presents every time I am out on the course playing or practicing on the range.
