The European Tour heads to India this week, check out who our tipster is picking to do well with these Hero Indian Open Golf Betting Tips
Hero Indian Open Golf Betting Tips
The European Tour is back in India this week for the 2016 Hero Indian Open.
Last season the event was won by Anirban Lahiri, while since then Chiragh Kumar has also won at Delhi Golf club in the Panasonic Open, an Asian Tour event staged there every season.
The course in question is a par 72 offering that measures just 6,983 yards off the tips. The flat layout features bushes left and right of every fairway, and sees players hit lots of irons off the tee.
It’s all about position, so there’s little sense in backing a bomber, with last year’s top-two – Lahiri and S.S.P. Chawrasia – finishing 1st and 2nd in the European Tour’s Putting Average stats.

Hero Indian Open Golf Betting Tips Advised Bets
Anirban Lahiri 3 points each way at 8/1 – Lahiri landed his second European Tour win of 2015 and seventh Asian Tour title with victory here last year, which was his fourth win at the course! The Indian star has now established himself with a top five at last summer’s PGA Championship, while this year’s PGA Tour results include top 40s at La Quinta, TPC Scottsdale, Torrey Pines and Doral.
Marcus Fraser 2 points each way at 17/1 – Marcus Fraser held the lead on the back nine last year before faltering, and returns to Delhi Golf Club off the back of winning the Maybank Championship in Malaysia last month on a similarly short course. He followed that win with a T15 in Perth and then led briefly at the WGC Cadillac Championship.
Brett Rumford 2 points each way at 21/1 – The Aussie arrives in India on the back of successive 7th places in the Perth International and the Tshwane Open. He’s made both cuts on previous trips to India, and some good recent putting stats suggest that he could shine here this week.
S.S.P. Chowrasia 1 point each way at 41/1 – The Indian’s last five starts at Delhi Golf Club have produced finishes of 2-1-4-2-5, including a win at the 2014 Panasonic Open, his second win at this track following victory in the 2008 Indian Masters.
Chiragh Kumar 1 point each way at 101/1 – Kumar won the latest tournament to be played over Delhi GC during November’s Panasonic Open. That added to a previous second place there in the 2011 Indian Open. Kumar had been struggling in the early part of 2016, but gave his confidence a timely boost with a T19 in last week’s True Thailand Classic, where he shot 68-68-76-68.
