New Delhi, Jan 18 (UNI) The Solaris Chemtech Open, the fifth event of the 2007-08 PGTI season, will be held at the Golden Greens Golf Course in Gurgaon from January 29 to February 3.

Ashok, who is looking forward to putting on a good show at the event said, ''The Golden Greens Golf Course is of international standards. It has deep bunkers and a links-style layout. The course played really well last year but I expect the greens to be a little tougher this time around.'' ''As far as my current form is concerned, I am not too worried as I know my hard work will pay off sooner rather than later. In fact, I haven't done too badly this season. In the two events I have played this season I have registered a tied seventh and a tied 20th finish,''he added.
