Singapore: SSP Chawrasia has been honoured as the Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Month for March, thanks largely to his heroics at the Hero Indian Open.
The Indian produced a typically gutsy display of golf in his national Open last month to win his third Asian Tour title by defeating 2015 Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Year Anirban Lahiri and Korean rising star Wang Jeung-hun by two shots.
The victory was especially sweet for Chawrasia, who had settled for second best on four occasions in the Indian Open before his triumph at the Delhi Golf Club.
The Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Month award is one of the partnership initiatives aimed at recognising outstanding efforts of Asian Tour members both at home and abroad.
Hilton Worldwide is a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“I’m delighted to win the Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Month. I’m proud to receive this accolade and I would like to thank Hilton and all my fans for voting for me. I’ll strive to work even harder and continue to achieve more success this season,” said 37-year-old Chawrasia.
The online voting contest to determine the monthly winner engages golf fans as they vote for their favourite golfer through the Asian Tour’s media channels, culminating with fans voting for the Asian Tour Hilton Golfer of the Year at the end of 2016.
Besides casting their vote for their favourite player, fans who log onto asiantour.hiltongolf.com also stand a chance to win a one night stay at any Hilton property of their choice.
Chawrasia won the award ahead of Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Scott Hend of Australia. The trio were nominated by a selection panel before going into a voting process.
Chawrasia is the second Indian to win the Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Month award. Reigning Asian Tour number one Lahiri won the June-September title last year before going on to sweep the Hilton Asian Tour Golfer of the Year award.
