New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) The top Indian professionals besides Singapore’s Lam Chih Bing are all set to light up the Classic Golf Resort in the Grand Finale of the Business Today-Honda Pro-Am of Champions on Saturday. The prestigious event now in its 13th year is the only stand-alone Pro-Am on the Indian professional golf circuit and undoubtedly the most-looked-forward-to event on the corporate calendar.

The top five professionals on the current PGTI Order of Merit - Lam Chih Bing, Digvijay Singh, Rahul Ganapathy, Mukesh Kumar and Shamim Khan have all confirmed their entries in a total of over 22 professionals vying for honours.

Defending champion and No.1 on the 2007-08 PGTI Order of Merit Ashok Kumar will be looking to retaining his title. For the first time ever, a lady professional - Shalini Malik who played the Ladies Masters in December last year - will also be seen in action.

The exclusive field comprises a heady mixture of top notch CEOs from across the country who will get a chance to rub shoulders with the top pros in this prestigious event.

The four-venue event teed off in Bangalore and covered Kolkata and Mumbai before reaching for its final stop - Delhi. The respective winners from each City will also be seen in action in the Grand Finale.

Apart from the main trophies, a mega prize of a brand new Honda CRV car will be awarded to the first player (amateurs only) to card a hole-in-one on the par-3 hole No. 5.

The par-72 Classic Golf Resort, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is expected to be a good challenge for the pros and the amateurs.
