Hero Indian Open: The Best Shots of the Week


SSP Chawrasia successfully defended his title at the Hero Indian Open in New Delhi. The 28-year-old from Calcutta finished at 10-under par and lapped the field by 7-strokes.

It was Chawrasia’s first win of the season. In fact it was his first made-cut since the Abu Dhabi back in early January where he finished T70. The diminutive (5’5″, 140 lbs) Indian has missed the cut in five of the six starts this season, so this week is a season-maker for the (at the moment) 258th ranked player in the world.

Chawrasia hopes this victory will improve his performance in Europe. “I learned many things this week and hopefully I can play better in Europe. That’s my target next, I have to win in Europe,” said Chawrasia.

Here’s a round up of the best shots and photos from the Hero Indian Open.

Bogey of the Week

Romain Langasque with the luckiest shot of the week. After dunking it in the water, the Frenchman nails the pin on his approach (6th shot) to avoid what would have easily been a snowman.
