DP World Tour’s Asia Swing Continues With 2023 Hero Indian Open Since 2019. The DP World Tour finishes up a tour of Asia before a one-week break with the return of the Hero Indian Open.
This will be the first time the tournament is contested since 2019 after three years’ worth of COVID-19 restrictions.
The event was part of the European and Asian Tours from 2015-19 and has been played since 1964. This year, the DP World Tour is partnering with the Professional Golf Tour of India to host the event. Scotsman Stephen Gallacher won the event in 2019 with Matt Wallace winning the year before. India native SSP Chawrasia won back-to-back editions in 2016-17 and was runner-up in 2015.
The Gary Player Course at DLF Golf and Country Club in the capital city of New Delhi has hosted the event since 2017. It’s a par-72 course and measures 7,393 yards in length. The course can be quite tricky with narrow fairways, undulating greens, and water in play on seven holes. In 2019, only three players avoided a double-bogey in their 72 holes, and Gallacher overcame a quadruple-bogey 8 on hole No. 7 to win the event.
Cruised to a win at the Thailand Classic last week, entering the final round with a two-stroke advantage and winning by four over Yannik Paul. He’s been fantastic in four events this year with improving finishes in each one, winning last week after going 20th, 16th, and fourth in three tournaments in the United Arab Emirates.
Is a co-favorite and also in fine form. His fifth-place finish last week was his third top 10 in six events in the 2023 DP World Tour season, and he’s made the cut in all six of those tournaments. It’s been just over a year since his last win, but his consistency could be about to pay off.
Struggled as one of the favorites last week in Thailand, finishing tied for 57th. He hasn’t had a top-10 finish in four events this year, so you may want to hold off on the Scot this week.
Comes into India with some momentum after finishing runner-up to Olesen last week. He was 34th the week before in Singapore and comes in with seven-straight rounds under par.
Was the 54-hole leader here in 2018 but settled for a seventh-place finish. He’s had two solid finishes in events with stronger fields as of late—a runner-up finishes to Tommy Fleetwood at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and a seventh at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship last month.
In an event that has been friendly to countrymen, we like Sharma at odds that represent good value. Among the favorites, we would back Hojgaard and Paul.
