Playing Style

Vijay is a right hander who is one of the longer hitters in the game. He is good around the greens but like most struggles on the putting surfaces from time. He is one of those players who when hot is very hot. He is known for his dedication to practice and can often be seen at Tournaments long after every one else has gone home. Although right handed, Vijay is reputed to be able to play off a handicap of 6, left handed.
