Kolkata: Battling a minor neck sprain, Indian golfer SSP Chawrasia is all set for a new beginning under coach Vijay Divecha in 2016 which will also be a testing time for him to make the cut for Rio Olympics, a first for the sport since 1904.

"The top-two will lead India’s challenge and I’m pretty close in getting there. Olympics is a big motivation and a good performance will give the sport a big boost," the unassuming Kolkata lad told PTI today while undergoing a rehab to treat his neck sprain that he sustained while working out. The 37-year-old who finished fourth in the 2015 Asian Tour rankings is tipped to make the cut along with India numero uno and world ranked 40 Anirban Lahiri, who’s also
coached by the Divecha.
