Euro Tour is India for First Time

The Indian Open is a new European Tour event that was created with a lot of fanfare, as well as controversy. The European Tour unilaterally announced the event without the consultation of and joint-recognition of the Asian Tour. Ultimately, that dispute was settled and it now appears that this week will be a celebration of how far Indian golf has come in recent years.

With players like Jyoti Randhawa and Jeev Milkha Singh now becoming common faces in the majors, Indian golf has hit the big time. The nation's best will take on a slew of the normal Euro Tour greats, including Ernie Els who is coming off of a horrible collapse at the Dubai Desert Classic for the second year running.
