Since the inaugural Hero Women’s Indian Open in 2007, the contest has become very popular with players and spectators alike. All the golfers will be fighting for a price pool of $500,000 (Rs 3.7 crore approx.) which is by far the highest prize money ever in any of the previous editions. Interestingly, this is the first time when the event will be played over 72 holes.
