Gallacher shrugs off horrendous form to win Indian Open

Steven Gallacher hadn't won since 2014 and was on a run of four straight missed cuts before he won the Indian Open. Harvey Jamison wraps up the action
 

Hero Indian Open report: What happened in New Delhi?

A stellar final round comeback from Steven Gallacher saw him claim his fourth European Tour title as he took down tournament leader Julian Suri to win the Hero Indian Open.

The winds blew at DLF Golf & Country Club, but nothing could stop the Scot who carded three birdies in his final four holes, signing for a Sunday 71 to win on 9-under-par by a single stroke.

A quadruple-bogey 8 on the par-4 7th left Gallacher five shots back and looked to have ended his chances, but final-rounds of 77, 78 and 73 from Julian Suri, Callum Shinkwin and Masahiro Kawamura respectively allowed him back in.

With 15 players in contention for the title Gallacher took the solo lead on the 17th hole, before taking dead aim at the flag at 18 to set up a closing birdie that ultimately proved vital.

Hero Indian Open report: Talking point

Form comes from anywhere in golf. All you need is a good break or a putt to drop and your week has a different ending. That was certainly the case for Gallacher in New Delhi.

The Scot has missed his last four cuts in a row, carded his first round in the 60s for two months on Thursday, and in seven starts this season has only made it to the weekend twice.

But more than five years on from his last win at the 2014 Omega Dubai Desert Classic he’s a European Tour champion again.

And all with his son Jack on the bag. Let’s just hope he paid him fairly
