The EurAsia Cup star was defeated in a play-off to eventual champion Anirban Lahiri last year but he remains hopeful of landing the prestigious title when the event takes place at the Delhi Golf Club from March 17 to 20. He also finished second in 1999, 2006 and 2013.

"The Indian Open is the biggest event in my country and every Indian golfer wants to win it. When I lose in any tournament, I realise I learn from it and that helps me improve. I've come close so many times so I'm a bit disappointed but this is part of golf," said Chawrasia.
"I'm very excited to play at Delhi again because I always have good results. All the Indian players know how to tackle the course and my game is slowly getting better so I'm feeling confident," he said.
