March 9: Current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader Marcus Fraser of Australia will be among the star-studded names at the Hero Indian Open next week.
He will be joined by Joost Luiten of the Netherlands and South Africa’s George Coetzee, who are among six players ranked inside the top-100 in the Official World Golf Ranking at the US$1.66 million event sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour.
Title holder Anirban Lahiri, Tommy Fleetwood, and Marc Warren, are the other players in the top-100. Padraig Harrington of Ireland, a three-time Major champion, is also in the elite field.
A whole host of past winners and defending champion Lahiri will also be seen in action. The presence of all leading Indian and Asian stars will ensure the 2016 edition of the Hero Indian Open will be the strongest ever in history.
