Chawrasia leads Indian challenge in Myanmar Open
SSP Chawrasia, who had a superb final round at Singapore Open last week, will be hoping to build on that when he tees at the Leopalace21 Myanmar Open, which will feature as many as eight Indians, all of whom have tasted success at the Asian Tour.
Chawrasia, currently the second highest world ranked Indian after Anirban Lahiri, will be joined by Rashid Khan, Chiragh Kumar, Arjun Atwal, Himmat Rai, Rahil Gangjee, Shiv Kapur and Gaganjeet Bhullar.
“This is my first visit to Myanmar and I am liking it. The golf course is nice. It is picturesque and the weather is somewhat warm, but not unbearable because it is not humid like Singapore last week. The mornings and evening are very pleasant.
“Last week I was somewhat patchy. I gave away a lot in a couple of holes, including a triple. But I was happy with my final nine on the last day,” Chawrasia, who was tied-38th, said.
