am very happy. It is such a tough course, I think I got lucky this week,” Chawrasia said after pocketing a winner’s cheque of USD 291,660. “It was only after I drove from the 18th tee I felt now I will win this one. All week, I just tried to keep it straight and putt well. “I m glad my prediction of 10-under came true,” added the Kolkata pro, who became the second Indian after Jeev Milkha Singh to bag four European Tour titles.

He became the 3rd player after Jyoti Randhawa (2006, 2007) and Japan’s Kenji Hosoishi (1967, 1968) to win back-to-back Indian Open. Interestingly, this is also the third consecutive win for India at the Indian Open with Anirban Lahiri winning it in 2015 and Chawrasia bagging the title last year.
