Gallacher claimed his fourth DP World Tour victory at DLF Golf and Country Club in March 2019 as he recovered from a quadruple-bogey eight in the final round with three birdies in his last four holes. The former Ryder Cup player was unable to defend the title as the tournament was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the 48-year-old is back in New Delhi this week as he bids to end a disappointing run of results. "I feel great," Gallacher said. "It's 1400-odd days since I was last here so there's been a lot of hardship that's happened since then, but it's great to be here and get the event played. "There are plenty of great memories. It's a course that's not really changed very much, it's in amazing condition, same as the last time we were here and I've got some great memories coming down the stretch. Hopefully I can replicate them this week. "It's just one of those courses you've got to be patient at, it's not one you can force a score on. "I had a poor hole on seven (in the final round in 2019) and then I think I had five or six birdies from then on in. Anything can happen. "You've got to play with your head around here. Par is a good score. There's some tough, tough holes and few you can attack, but it's just a really tough track and one of the best we play all year to be honest." Gallacher's fellow Scot Robert MacIntyre is one of just four players in the world's top 100 in the field, with world number 92 Thorbjorn Olesen seeking back-to-back victories following his triumph in Thailand last week. "It's been a while since I've been to India and it's been on my schedule from when I made it in December," Olesen said. "It's still a very important week for me. There's a break after this so I want to try my best this week to have a really good finish and see if I can climb up that ranking a little bit more."
