Yes Bank, India's fourth largest private sector bank, Friday signed a three-year deal with the Indian Golf Union (IGU) Junior Tour commencing with the 2014 season.

The tour comprises 11 tournaments including 4-zonals (North, South, East and South) and a final. Over 250 junior golfers from across the country will compete in the tournament to represent India in the national Junior squad.

"Golf in India today is largely a youth driven sport, and while the IGU, India’s apex golf body, has spearheaded promotion and development of the sport since 1955, golf still finds itself in a nascent stage in India compared to neighboring Asian countries like Thailand and Malaysia," said Rana Kapoor, managing director & CEO, Yes Bank.

The tour opener at Jaipur, played at the Rambagh Golf Course, witnessed 75 talented players between the age of 13-17 years competing in two groups. 

Shubham Narain emerged winner with the score of 279 in both the groups while Karandeep Kochhar and Piyush Sangwan bagged second and third place with a score of 280 and 281 respectively. The final tournament will be played in Bangalore in November 2014.
