SSP Chawrasia and Himmat Rai will lead the Indian charge at the Thailand Golf Open Championship that will kick off on Thursday.
Both Rai and Chawrasia will be battling for their spot in the Asian Tour Order of Merit. Himmat Rai, who had an excellent outing at the Ho Tram Open where he finished runner-up, is currently 35th in the order of merit. He will be teeing off against Thitipun Chuayprakong of Thailand and Australian Josh Younger.
Elsewhere, SSP Chawrasia will tee off against Chapchai Nirat of Thailand and Steve Lewton of England. Chawrasia is currently fourth in the order of merit.
A major blow for India would be the missing of Anirban Lahiri. He is on top of the order of merit with a total of $1,139,084 and has a huge lead over the second placed Scott Hend who has $491,631.
Other Indian Golfer that will be looking to improve their ranking are Chiragh Kumar, Rashid Khan, Jyoti Randhawa, Gaganjeet Bhullar, and Rahil Gangjee. All these players will be in action at the Amata Spring Country Club.
Only the top 60 players in the Order of merit will secure their card and since this is the penultimate tournament, every golfer will be trying desperately to make the cut.
