Congratulations to Gaganjeet Bhullar -- and to SSP Chowrasia for last week's big title. Really nice to have two Indians win titles in Asia in successive weeks. Also nice to see Jeev finish runner-up, regaining some form after awhile.

Congratulations Gaganjeet for winning second tournament of the year. Good to see Gaganjeet is back. His goal is to play PGA tour. So we may see him play the qualifiers this year.
Great to see Jeev showing some old spark.

Yes, Ajay. Gaganjeet returning to form post-injury has been the highlight of the current season.
