Armed with TaylorMade metalwoods, Chawrasia finished the day 7 shots ahead of fellow TaylorMade staff professional Gavin Green. Utilising the All-New 2017 M1 3 wood, Chawrasia impressed off the tee hitting 76.8% of fairways on a golf course that demanded accuracy and precision.

This is probably my best win of my career as it was a really tough course. This week, I made less mistakes and others made more mistakes.
