    Born in Amritsar, India in 1988, Bhullar was a talented amateur golfer, who was the number one amateur in his home country, in both 2004 and 2006. He also helped the Indian team to win the silver medal at the Asian Games, in 2006. Bullar turned professional that same year.

    After turning professional, Bhullar played on the Professional Golf Tour of India. During his time playing on this tour, Bhullar has been reasonably successful. He played in seven events, in his first season on the tour, and finished in the top 10 on three of occasions; two of these finishes were as runner-up. Bhullar’s successes that season led to him finishing in fifth place on the Order of Merit. He repeated this placing the following season.
    In 2007, Bhullar began playing on the Asian Tour. In his first season on the tour he made the cut in seven of the nine events he played, and finished in 77th place in the Order of Merit, with total prize money of $52,413. Bhullar played his first full season on the Asian Tour the following year. He made the cut in 14 of the 21 events he played, and finished in 65th place in the Order of Merit, earning him a place on the tour for the following year.

    Although Bhullar had a slow start, on the 2009 Asian Tour, he went on to achieve his first tour win, at the Indonesia President Invitational. The previous week, Bhullar had become the youngest player to compete at the Open Championship, although he failed to make the cut. At the end of the year Bhullar finished in 6th place in the Order of Merit, on the Asian Tour. He finished in 5th place in the Professional Golf Tour of India Order of Merit, having achieved a fourth win on the tour, at the PGTI Players Championship presented by Eagleton.

    In 2010, Bhullar continued to play on both the Asian Tour, and the Professional Golf Tour of India. He achieved wins on both tours. He was also invited to play the Japan PGA Championship, but failed to make the cut. That same year, Bhullar finished in joint 30th place in his first European Tour event of the year, the Estoril Open de Portugal. Bhullar continued to be successful on the Asian Tour, where he finished in fourth place at the Brunei Open. He finished the season in 17th place in the Order of Merit.

    In 2011, Bhullar’s success at the Gujarat Kensville Challenge, on the Challenge Tour, meant he was the first Indian player to win an event on that tour.  He also continued to play on the Professional Golf Tour of India, and won three events on that tour.

    Bhullar continued to achieve some level of success, and in 2013 he won his fifth title on the Asian Tour.
    As of the end of 2014, Bhullar had played three events on the PGA Tour. He was yet to achieve a win, but had amassed total prize money of $40,425.
