Hero Indian Open - Predictions

European Tour Golf Lines

The Hero Indian Open is back for the third time on the official European Tour schedule, but 53rd time overall making it one of the oldest of it’s kind in that part of the world.

Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello +1000 headlines the betting field and he’s excited to play in India. “The Hero Indian Open has been a last minute addition to my schedule - in fact I only confirmed last week,” said Cabrera Bello, who will fly to India from the World Golf Championships in Mexico. “It is going to be a long flight from Mexico to India, but I am looking forward to it.”

Joining Bello in the betting field include Indian star’s Anirban Lahiri +800 and defending champion S.S.P. Chawrasia +7000, Thai star Kiradech Aphibarnrat +2500, American Peter Uihlein +1500, rookies Jordan Smith +2750 and Romain Langasque +3000 and South African George Coetzee +1400.

The Venue: The Gary Player course at DLF Golf and Country Club will host this year’s event. It’s a beast and measures 7,657 yards that features the par-3, 16th which measures 273 yards. Add in water, elevation changes, tough bunkering and extremely tricky greens and the course could create some high scores and those who break par will be in the mix.

Last Year: SSP Chawrasia closed with a solid, one under par 71 to hold Anirban Lahiri and Jeunghun Wang and win the Hero Indian Open. The home crowd favorite had finished second in this event four times, including last year when Lahiri defeated him in a play-off, but this time he held his nerve down the stretch, made some clutch putts to claim his third European Tour title.

Hero Indian Open Predictions

The course is long and Dean Burmester +1400 is one of the longest hitters in the world. Fresh off his breakthrough win a week ago at the Tshwane Open, the South African should be ready and excited to see how well he can play on a venue that clearly suits his game.

One player’s game that should suit the long layout is Nicolas Colsaerts +10000. The former Ryder Cup star has fallen on hard times and has cashed just once in four starts on the European Tour this season. If there’s one track that the Belgian should play well on, this is it.

Rookie Romain Langasque +3000 hits the ball long and also ranks near the top in GIR, which are two ingredients that are needed this week to contend. The Frenchman is a model of consistency, cashing in his last seven starts. Langasque is worth a look in all formats this week.

Defending champion S.S.P. Chawrasia +7000 has an impressive record playing on his home soil, but all his damage was done on short courses that required accuracy. This week’s course is long, real long and I don’t think the Indian star has enough length to keep up this week. FADE Chawrasia!

Hero Indian Open golf tournament is scheduled to start March 9-12, 2017 at DLF Golf and Country Club in New Delhi, India. The Golf Channel will televise the event.
