The Indian fans flocking to follow Shubhankar Sharma are set for a treat on Thursday morning when he tees it up alongside two more of the European Tour's most exciting stars at DLF Golf and Country Club.

The Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex leader will be the big draw in the group teeing off at 07.30 from the tenth, with the 21 year old having already claimed two wins this season and arriving off the back of a strong showing at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

But he will not be the only star on show as he is joined by fan favourite Andrew Johnston and the ever-aggressive Julian Suri, whose risk and reward game is sure to make for entertaining viewing on the tough layout.

They will be followed off the tenth tee by local favourite Shiv Kapur, who is teeing off alongside 2016 Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke and rising Thai star Phachara Khongwatmai.

Current Ryder Cup skipper Thomas Bjørn tees off at 7.20 and he will be alongside two Englishmen hoping for a big summer to force themselves into his plans in James Morrison and Oliver Fisher.

Two-time defending champion SSP Chawrasia tees off at 12.10 and he will have Anirban Lahiri - the man who beat him in a play-off at this event in 2015 - and UBS Hong Kong Open champion Wade Ormsby for company.

Friends Joost Luiten and Chris Wood - who recently did battle at the NBO Oman Open with Luiten prevailing - tee off together at midday alongside Argentinian Emiliano Grillo.
