Some months ago, this is where Arjun Atwal and his wife, Sona, set up their new base. Celebration is where Atwal wanted to live his dream from. Last week, he took the most definitive step in that direction by becoming the first Indian to qualify for the world's most lucrative professional golf tour, the US PGA Tour, which has $245 million in prize money. This is that exclusive world where players can become millionaires over one single weekend. This is where golfers own jet planes, islands and private golf courses to practise in.
So the decision to settle in Celebration seems just right. For, this 30-year-old has achieved enough this year to revel in. He won his second European PGA Tour title—at the Malaysian Open—and followed that with an entry into the high-profile $6 million wgc Amex Championships. He also earned a qualification into the final stages of the US PGA Tour and his second Hero Honda Masters title. He is leading the Asian PGA Order of Merit and now has a passport into the world's biggest golf tour.
