Olympian Udayan Mane, in-form Yuvraj Singh Sandhu, Rashid Khan and Khalin Joshi are among the leading names set to tee-off in the Rs. 40-lakh Delhi-NCR Open golf championship at the Noida Golf Club course on Tuesday.

Mane, the defending champion and Sandhu, winner of three titles on the PGTI Tour in the last five months, will have to be wary of some serious challengers. Rashid and Joshi are winners of international Tour titles besides another former champion Honey Baisoya. The prospects of Asian Tour regulars like Aman Raj, Karandeep Kochhar, Manu Gandas and Abhijit Singh Chadha cannot be discounted.
