The Prospects by Sports Illustrated Internship Program

Now accepting applications for roles in Sports Media, Sports Marketing, Event Management and Journalism.



Averaging 285 off the Tee, Aarav prides himself on both his strength and accuracy as a golfer. Competing since the early age of 6 years old, Aarav has traveled the world while mastering his game. Having played tournaments in Malaysia, India, Australia, Scotland, America, Malta and France has helped him become a well rounded and experienced golfer.


At the start of the pandemic in early 2020, Aarav  raised over $4000 with the help of his friends Vihaan and Yods. All the funds raised were distributed equally to the caddies from his local Golf club to help with lost wages due to C-19 shutdowns of the clubs. You can follow their fundraiser on instagram @care4caddies


Aarav continued to show his maturity by hosting an instagram live chat show called "Rapid Fire Q&a with Arrow" which allowed him to stay connected during the pandemic with friends he made over the past 8 years of travelling around the world while playing golf tournaments.

Aarav will be playing in Prospects by Sports Illustrated’s Orlando Open in June this year!
