Strong Indian contingent at Asia-Pacific in Delhi

A six-member strong Indian contingent is all set to tee off at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship, the winner of which will get a chance to play alongside the world's elite at the Augusta National in the following year's Masters.  The tournament will take place at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club, which hosted the Presidents Cup, where Anirban Lahiri made history by becoming the first Indian ever to represent the International team. The winner gets a berth at 2017 Masters and the runner-up gets a spot in final qualifying for 2017 British Open.  Three of the six Indian players in Incheon this week are on golf scholarships in the United States.
