    Keita Nakajima wins Hero Indian Open with record winning score, India’s Veer Ahlawat tied second

    Ahlawat takes a substantial lead in the TATA Steel PGTI Ranking

    Keita Nakajima was never really threatened at the USD 2.25 million Hero Indian Open as he won by four shots and set a record for a winning total by aggregating 17-under, three better than the winning score of 2023 achieved by Germany’s Marcel Siem, who was injured and couldn't defend his title this year.

    Nakajima’s win was never in doubt, it was only about the margin of victory. At one stage, Nakajima was nine clear of the field, but finally finished four ahead to take his maiden DP World Tour title at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

    Veer played some excellent bunker shots making a terrific up and down for birdie on the 11th. He also made quality par-saves on the 13th and 14th. Another highlight of his round was his thi...

    Joost Luiten of Netherlands, a regular at the Hero Indian Open, shot 7-under 67 and then called the DLF Golf and Country Club as “a demanding course” but also confessed that he likes it.

    Luiten is a six-time winner on the DP World Tour, but has been winless on the tour since 2018.  At the end of the first round, among the co-leaders was the incredible young talent from Japan, Keita Nakajima, who spent a record 87 weeks as the World’s No. 1 amateur before turning pro in 2022 and winning three more times and emerging as No 1 in Japan Tour – an achievement that earned him a card into the DP World Tour.

    Then there was Matteo Manassero from Italy, a...
