The Johnnie Walker classic further underlined the
development of golf in India
Sunday saw the conclusion of the most important golf tournament ever held in India.

The Johnnie Walker classic was eventually won by New Zealand's Mark Brown - he held off many of the world's best players who have been attracted to the New Delhi course by a two and a half million dollar prize fund.
