For the last one year, sameera reddy has taken to learning golf, under the supervision of a training coach called Suresh. She has even picked up quite a few tricks in the short time. You'd associate the game with older people but she says about her new passion, "Golf is quite a challenging sport. It's really exciting once you get the hang of it and what's most interesting is that everything is dependent on one's accuracy. You need to have brilliant concentration and judgment skills."
Sameera adds that although there are great golf grounds in the country, she has been trying her hand at the amazing courses abroad, while on location, shooting, "I have my own set of clubs called Ping, which I picked up on one of my trips abroad. I carry it with me wherever I go. I prefer playing the game more as a leisure activity so whenever I find some time, I enjoy playing."
But Tiger Woods can breathe easy. She has no intention of playing golf on a professional level. "I was with friends in Chennai and I first played with them at the Cosmopolitan Golf Annex and I developed an interest for the sport. It's now been a year since I have been practising it, though I would not call myself a master at the sport. My trainer Suresh guides and helps me sharpen my skills. My favourite golf champions are Tiger Woods and Paul Casey."
