The Hero Women’s Indian Open will take place from December 4th through 6th at the historic Delhi Golf Club. In addition to a stellar global field including players from 25 countries, a strong contingent of Indian golfers will be competing.
In India, golf is growing at a steady pace with Indian men increasingly making their mark in International events.
Women’s golf is also growing in India, having come into its own over the past decade. The Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI), founded in 2005, has been empowering young players to build their competitive skills, while the Hero Women’s Indian Open, established in 2007, provides a perfect platform for young home-grown golfers to test ttheir skills against top players from around the world.
The “Indian Challenge” promises to be stronger than ever this year, with several young players poised to win. Among them, the spotlight is shining particularly brightly on:
Sharmila Nicollet, She’s already made a name for herself at home and around the world, becoming the youngest golfer to win the All India Ladies Amateur Championship, and the youngest Indian golfer to qualify for the Ladies European Tour.
Gauri Monga, after an impressive 5th place finish as an amateur in 2013, this 21year-old is making her professional debut at this year’s Women’s Indian Open… with home course advantage.
Vani Kapoor, She’s a multiple Hero Women’s Golf Tour winner coming off of a dream season and currently leading the Hero Order of Merit.
