Digvijay ended a long 12-year wait for his first Asian Tour victory at the 2012 Panasonic Open India where he overcame a three-shot deficit to defeat Gaganjeet Bhullar and Siddikur Rahman by two shots in front of his adoring fans. He started the 2013 season well with two top-10s at the Chiangmai Golf Classic and Panasonic Open India. After eight previous attempts, Digvijay earned full playing status on the Asian Tour after a breakthrough 2008 season. He enjoyed a flying start to his campaign when he finished tied fourth in the season-opening Emaar-MGF Indian Masters which virtually sealed his card for the following season. In 2009, Digvijay safely held on to his Tour card after claiming two top-20s and a tied sixth place finish at the Hero Honda Indian Open. In 2011, Digvijay posted a fourth place result at the ICTSI Philippine Open. Prior to 2008, he posted two third-place finishes on the Asian Tour. He held at least a share of the lead for the first three rounds at the Crowne Plaza Open in Beijing in 2005 before finishing third, one shot behind the play-off duo of Prayad Marksaeng and Marcus Both. He was also third in the 2002 Indian Open. He has won 12 titles on the domestic Indian circuit. During his amateur days, he represented India in the Eisenhower Trophy (1996 & 1998), Nomura Cup (1995 & 1997) and the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok.
Digvijay is the brother-in-law to Jyoti Randhawa, Asia’s number one in 2002. It was Randhawa who influenced Digvijay to learn the game when he was 17. In a matter of two years, Digvijay brought his handicap down to three. Had initially wanted to join the army as his father was a colonel. His golf hero is Ben Hogan and philosophy in the game is to “get the ball in the hole in the least number of shots.” Enjoys skydiving, biking and target shooting.
