    On Sunday, Aditi Ashok became the first Indian to win a tournament on the Ladies European Tour. A look at five other landmark moments in Indian golf:1965 The first Indian Open winner from IndiaThe first Indian Open was played in 1964, nine years after the establishment of the sports governing body the Indian Golf Union, and five-time British Open champion Peter Thomson won the inaugural event at the Delhi Golf Club. The following year, the event was held at the par-73 Royal Calcutta Golf Course, and Indian amateur Prem Gopal Sethi (also known as Billoo) stunned a strong foreign contingent to win by a margin of seven strokes. Sethi began his first two rounds with successive five-under-68 scores, and paved the way for seven other Indians to have picked up the most prestigious title on Indian soil, including Jyoti Randhawa who won three times.1982 Asian Games double for Laxman SinghGolf has been a regular fixture at the Asian Games since the 1982 edition in New Delhi, India, and the Indians havent been as successful as they were in the first edition. Laxman Singh picked up the individual gold, beating compatriot Rajiv Mohta by three strokes. Singh and Mohta then combined with Amit Luthra and Rishi Narain to pick up the team gold ahead of South Korea and Japan. India have only won three more medals at subsequent editions of the Asian Games -- Shiv Kapur picked up the individual gold in 2002, and then the Indian team won silvers in both 2006 and 2010.1996 First Indian to qualify for the LPGAKolkata-born Simi Mehra turned professional in 1994, and by then had already picked up titles as an amateur, including one at the Malaysian National Championship in 1993. She would then try her luck at the LPGA through Qualifying School in 1995-96, with as many as 25 titles under her belt. She made it through to the LPGA Tour at her first attempt, and played in the top tier of womens golf in three stints between 1996 and 2008. After a long break, during which she was also instrumental in setting up the Womens Golf Association of India, she re-entered the Symetra Tour to qualify for the LPGA Tour again in 2017, but missed the cut at the first stage in August.2006 Jeev makes the top 100Jeev Milkha Singh began the calendar year with a ranking in the late 300s. His first event of the year was at the Asian Tour Pakistan Open, where he produced a tied-2nd rank to set the tone for what remains easily his best year since turning pro. There were two title wins on the Japan Golf Tour to round off the year, though he first improved his rankings with a one-stroke win at the China Open, co-sanctioned between the Asian and European Tours. Jeev headed into the prestigious European Tour Volvo Masters in October - the last official money event of the Tour that has since been replaced by the Dubai World Championship - in 147th rank, and beat a field comprising Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington (all of whom lost by a single shot to him) to pick up his fourth title in the year. This took him to 77th, becoming the first Indian male golfer to break into the top-100 of the world golf rankings. His career-best ranking remains 28th.2010 Atwal strikes gold at WyndhamIt was in 2003 that Arjun Atwal finished seventh at the PGA Tour qualifying school and earned a regular card to compete at the sports most competitive field as the first Indian golfer, and only the second of Indian origin after Vijay Singh of Fiji. In 2010, he was close to losing his regular card when he headed to the Wyndham Championship at the Sedgefield country club in North Carolina. He began with a tournament joint-best 9-under-61 in the first round, and maintained his composure on the par-70 course with subsequent scores of 67, 65 and 67. His win by one stroke over USAs David Toms remains the only PGA Tour title by an Indian golfer, besides improving his ranking from 450 to 182 across four days. Adidas Shoes Online .
