I love coming back to Delhi Golf Club. The atmosphere, character and history of this place really appeals to me.
Even though I’m not playing, I still feel that this is a great place to be.
Look at the way they have set up the tournament. Panasonic has done a fabulous job with the marquees and hospitality and it just creates a great atmosphere.
The changes from my playing day to today are simply unrecognizable.
We never had stuff like the marquees before. There’s even a marquee on the ninth hole now
We never had live TV when we played here so the changes have been massive.
This obviously means that the Tour is getting bigger and the coverage is more intense.
It has been tough for the players these last two days. The course is not that easy. It’s windy as it doesn’t usually get windy here but when it does, it swirls around.
Every hole has an avenue of trees and it bounces back and forth. It’s swirling and it’s gusty as you can see from the scores.
They are not as low as we regularly see when we come to the Delhi Golf Club.
It’s great to see Lam Chih Bing playing well again. I always feel he has lots of talent and I hope he can continue his good form.
But you got to look at the Indian players as there are many good players like Jeev, S.S.P. and Shiv.
You would have to look towards an Indian winner this week.
Ends.
