Dubai resident Shiv Kapur is an Indian professional golfer and insists golf needs to follow T20 to expand through formats such as EAGL and nine-hole matches.
Following a successful amateur career, winning the Indian and Malaysian Amateur Opens in 2000 and an individual gold medal at the 2002 Asian Games, Shiv turned professional in 2004. In his second season on the Asian Tour he won the season ending Volvo Masters of Asia and finished the year fourth on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.
He joined the European Tour in 2007, having earned enough as an affiliate member in 2006 to qualify for his playing privileges in Europe. Shiv now calls Dubai home with his family and is an Ambassador for the EAGL Series.
