[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]Kumar has a total of 123 wins on home soil over the span of 32 years in his professional career. But the Panasonic Open India is undoubtedly his  biggest win which is also his first international victory.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap]For the first time since it was launched in 2011, the Panasonic Open India was reduced to 54 holes. No thanks to the bleak weather which  caused seven hours of play to be lost in the first two days at the Delhi Golf Club.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]Mithun Perera’s quest for the Panasonic Open India title came agonising close yet again. This is the third time  the Sri Lankan has finished inside the top-five at the Panasonic Open India. He signed for a 70 to take fourth place on 208.
