Favourite - Shubhankar Sharma

The clear favourite among Fantasy users for the Hero Indian Open, Shubhankar Sharma features in 48.29% of teams in this week's game so far. With a strong record in this event and a top ten last week, the 27-year-old will be vying to become the 14th Indian winner in the event's long-standing history.

At 188th, Sharma is currently the highest-ranked Indian player on the Official World Golf Ranking, and will be hoping to build on his tied seventh finish in last week’s Porsche Singapore Classic - his best of the season so far. The two-time winner also has a strong record in this event, with a high of tied seventh in 2018 and a tied 13th in last year's edition.

His strengths this season are both his driving accuracy and strokes gained putting, where he ranks 13th on Tour. He also ranks 31st for greens in regulation, and 37th for both stroke average and strokes gained approach the green.


Form Horse - Ewen Ferguson

Another popular choice, Ferguson, who is making his debut at the Hero Indian Open this week, currently features in 40.29% of Fantasy teams.

The Scotsman continued his run of good form last week at Laguna National, capping off his week with a ninth consecutive under-par round on the DP World Tour to finish tied 11th at the Porsche Singapore Classic.

He's been incredibly consistent of late. That run of form began with a tie for 23rd at the Ras Al Khaimah Championship, which he continued with top tens in Qatar and Kenya, a tie for 20th at the SDC Championship and tie for 23rd at the Jonsson Workwear Open.

As for his strengths, Ferguson is consistent across the board from tee to green, with a good green all he needs for a breakthrough. He currently ranks fourth for driving accuracy, sixth for strokes gained approach the green, and inside the top 25 this season on the DP World Tour for strokes gained tee to green, stroke average, par three and par four scoring. His impressive results have existed

Wild Card - Gavin Green

After showing strong signs with an opening eight-under 64 in last week's Porsche Singapore Classic and an impressive resume when it comes to DLF Golf & Country Club, Gavin Green is a name to consider if you're looking for a wild card to fill your fantasy roster.

The 30-year-old Malaysian player, who also finished tied 11th at the Magical Kenya Open and tied 12th at the SDC Championship last month, currently features in 4.68% of Fantasy teams. He also ranks first in strokes gained putting on Tour so far this season, while also ranking inside the top ten for driving distance with an average of 323 yards.

In addition to his recent show of form, his results at the Hero Indian Open over the last four editions of the event are some of the most consistent. In the first staging of this event at the Gary Player designed course, Green finished second to S.S.P Chawrasia, which he followed with tie for 16th the following year. He made the cut again in 2019, and last year capped off his week with a 67 to finish tied eighth.

Looking back - Porsche Singapore Classic

The Asian Swing began with a dramatic climax as Jesper Svensson triumphed in a play-off over Kiradech Aphibarnrat to win his maiden DP World Tour title on just his 14th appearance.

Shane Lowry, our Favourite, made a respectable start on his trip to Singapore, finishing in a tie for 29th at Laguna National Golf Resort Club.

Form Horse Richard Mansell continued to impress with a tie for 11th, while our Wild Card Ockie Strydom made the cut and finished tied 47th, with a best round of 67 on day three.
