Veer Ahlawat, one of India’s most promising golfers, has achieved his career-best finish at the Hero Indian Open. The 28-year-old golfer ended up tied for second place after delivering a stellar one-under 71 on the final day of the tournament.

This achievement marks Ahlawat’s best-ever finish in a DP World Tour event. He shared the second position with Johannes Veerman and Sebastian Söderberg, finishing four shots adrift of the winner, Keita Nakajima.

Ahlawat’s performance at the Hero Indian Open was particularly noteworthy given that it took place at the DLF Golf & Country Club, his home course. Despite the immense pressure, Ahlawat managed to put together a good week thanks to some brilliant driving and iron play.

One of the highlights of Ahlawat’s performance was his eagle on the final hole. This spectacular finish not only thrilled the home crowd but also marked a personal milestone for Ahlawat, who had recently gotten married.

Prior to the Hero Indian Open, Ahlawat had been in good form, finishing in a tie for fifth at the Kolkata Challenge on the European Challenge Tour. His familiarity with the DLF G&CC, where he had finished in a tie for 13th at last year’s Hero Indian Open, undoubtedly played a role in his impressive performance.

Ahlawat’s achievement at the Hero Indian Open marks a significant moment for Indian golf, as it is the best Indian finish at the tournament since SSP Chawrasia’s victory at the 2017 edition.

Looking ahead, Ahlawat’s career-best finish at the Hero Indian Open is likely to boost his morale and confidence. As he continues to compete on the DP World Tour, golf fans can expect to see more strong performances from this talented golfer.
