No stranger to the course at the Delhi Golf Club, India’s SSP Chawrasia came out gunning on Thursday at the Hero Indian Open, firing a 6-under 65 to forge a five-way tie atop the leader board.
I played very well and was bogey free,” said Chawrasia. “I made some good putts and was hitting it good off the tees. It looked easy but it wasn’t! I’ve played here many times so I know how to play this course.”
He’s tied for the lead with Richard T. Lee, Chapchai Nirat, Siddikur Rahman and Joakim Lagergren. Rahman is the defending champion. Starting on the back nine, Chawrasia got hot at the turn, birdying 17, 18 and 1 consecutively.
