Both the European Tour regular will start their campaign today with an aim to regain form and improve their position on the European Tour.
Shubhanakar will start his proceeding with Nicolas Colasaerts, Chris Wood at 8:30 AM GMT+1. The other Indian Bhullar will tee off with Cormac Sharvin, Edoardo Molinari at 2:10 PM GMT+1.

The tournament will feature 156 golfers, with Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas tee off the tournament as the most prolific group.
Brandon Stone, who won this event in 2018, will start as a favourite to win the star-studded €6,215,965 prize money event.
The field includes some of the big names like Tyrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, Sam Burns, Corey Conners, Henrik Stenson, Lucas Herbert, to name a few.
