Amrik, Aaron’s father, had a background in tennis and even received a tennis scholarship offer.

Amrik was offered a tennis scholarship in the United States at the age of 20 but rejected it. He declined the opportunity for a more stable career path.

Aaron also has a brother and two sisters. One of Aaron’s sisters lives in Kenya, while he and his parents are both in the UK.

Aaron and his older brother used to play golf together when they were younger.

Why Does Aaron Wear Two Golf Gloves?

Most golfers typically wear only one glove on their non-dominant hands. However, there are a few golfers, including Aaron, who prefer to wear gloves on both hands.

He once was asked why he wore two gloves, and he simply replied by saying it was more comfortable wearing on both hands.

He developed this habit of wearing gloves on both hands after receiving a pair of gloves from someone.

Once, when Aaron’s father forgot his own gloves, Aaron lent him one of his gloves, resulting in a less-than-ideal experience.

Since then, Aaron always wears gloves on both hands while practicing or on a Tour.
