'I'm happy to be home'

Blessed with immense talent and a great personality, Sharmila Nicollet is one of the reckoned names in the golf world. Young, confident and class, she was recently at the ‘Louis Philippe Cup’ at Karnataka Golf Association to lend her support for the tournament. In a chat with Anila Kurian, Sharmila shares a few light moments about the sport.

How excited are you about this year’s tournament?
It’s going great so far and had great company as well. It was nice to learn a few things about the sport and also pass my knowledge to the amateurs. It’s a great format for golfers as you get to be aggressive but not too pressurised to perform individually.

You’ve been in the city for a while now...
Yes, it’s currently off-season for me so I’ve been here for about 2 months. Though the weather was absolutely ridiculous a month back, it’s cooling down again. I’m happy to be home.

Your next tour plans.
It’s been a long break for me and I am excited to play outside the country now. I think I’ll have another week of practice and then head abroad. I’m getting ready for the Asia Pacific and Indian tournament.

When it comes to entertainment, which one would you pick — movies or sitcoms? 
Sitcoms.

And some of your favourites?
‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Two and a half men’, ‘Californication’ and ‘Homeland’.

Your genre of music? 
I think I’m quite versatile with my choice of music. I listen to hard rock, Bollywood and anything that’s on my playlist. However, Rihanna’s music has been consistently my favourite for years now.

Travel destinations?
I love spending time in the south of Spain. But if it’s shopping, it has to be London.

Book you’re reading now.
I’m going back to reading ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin Sharma. I enjoy a lot of crime fiction as well.

Are you a foodie? 
A big time! Whenever I’m travelling, I make sure that I visit some of the best restaurants there and try the variety of food. Italian and Japanese are my favourite cuisines. I also love Indian sweets and chocolate — only on my cheat days though (winks).

Who is your inspiration?
I certainly look up to my mother Surekha a lot as she has supported me through everything so far. She’s an independent woman who has brought me up and will always remain my backbone.
