Chawrasia continues remarkable run in Delhi

Powered by National Club Golfer

Shiv Shankar Prasad Chawrasia continued a remarkable run of success in Delhi as he picked up his fourth win on Tour and all of them in the Indian capital

The 38-year-old won by seven at the, to say the least, unique DLF Golf & Country Club as just seven players finished under par. Chawrasia carded a 71 to get to double figures with Malaysia’s Gavin Green in a distant second place.

Italy’s Matteo Manassero and Scotland’s Scott Jamieson shared third with Carlos Pigem of Spain left to regret a fanned tee shot at the last which led to a penalty drop and a double bogey.

Eddie Pepperell was leading when the delayed third round resumed on Sunday but then played his last seven holes in seven over. He eventually finished in a tie for 22nd after a closing 76.

While the rest of the field carded plenty of double bogeys and often much worse Chawrasia recorded just six bogeys all week, one of which came at the last where, with an eight-shot lead, he hit a succession of wedges down the par 5.

“It’s one of the toughest courses I’ve played, and winning by seven shots, I’m really happy,” Chawrasia said. “I think this is one of the toughest courses I’ve played in my career.

“I’m not comfortable on the course, I’m nervous on every single shot. When I finished the third round, I knew I had a few shots lead into the final round. I didn’t need birdies, I was just aiming for pars in the final round.

“On 17, I was thinking I’m not hitting it short, I have to hit over the green and maybe hit the stone and come back. Luckily it did.”
