New Delhi: Two-time PGA Tour winner Daniel Chopra will be seen in action at the Hero Indian Open 2013, to be played from November 7-10 at the Delhi Golf Club here.

Chopra today confirmed his participation in the USD 1.25 million tournament which will be celebrating its golden jubilee edition.

Chopra spent his initial years playing at the Delhi Golf Club and won the All India Junior Golf Championships at the age of 14.

"I`m thrilled to be able to come back to India for the 50th Hero Indian Open. Delhi Golf Club is where I learnt to play and Hero are such a great sponsor of golf in India, I can`t think of anything that would make me prouder than to win next week," Chopra said.

Apart from this he finished fourth in the Iskandar Johor Open and sixth at the Thailand Golf Championship last year.

Chopra, who currently is playing in the US PGA tour, finished off his season last month on the Web.Com Tour in fine style, ending the Web.Com Championship in T29 position.
