SSP Chowrasia successfully defended his title at the Hero Indian Open 2017 to record his 6th Asian Tour victory and in the process, beacme only the third player to record a successful title defence of his National open. SSP produced a masterclass performance at the tough layout of DLF Golf & Country Club and walked away with a remarkable seven-shot victory.

A fact worth keeping in mind while considering all his achievements is that he finished runner -up four times at the Indian Open before he broke through. SSP’s father was a greenskeeper at Royal Calcutta Golf Club which was where he pcked up the game at the age of 10. He continues to practice there and lives close to the facility.

He has a fine short game which has even earned him the nickname of “Chipputtsia”. SSP Is going through a purple patch in his career unlike any before and picked up his first win abroad at the Resorts World Manila Masters in 2016.

Here, we take a look at what’s in his bag and the equipment he used on his way to the Hero Indian Open 2017 title over a stellar field that included global stars:


Model:TaylorMade M2,

Shaft: Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6S 65 grams stiff flex, tipped an inch,

Loft: 10.5 degrees adjusted to 10.7 degrees
