Golf Australia Express : Issue 23
AUSTRALIA’S ANDREW Dodt hasn’t figured down the final stretch of a European Tour event often. In fact, from 57 outings the 26-year-old has only twice placed inside the top 10. But with a sparkling performance including three rounds in the 60s to win this event in 2010, Dodt showed he could get the job done.

With faces unknown to most fans outside of Asia, the challenging DLF Golf and Country Club promises to throw up a stack of new names on its leaderboards. And that fresh look is good for golf. In 2011, SSP Chowrasia impressed on home soil to take the title and claim his second Avantha Masters. THE EVENT
