Anirban Lahiri - PB WR #33 (28-Mar-15), India #1

Postby Sin Hombre » Sun Jan 19, 2014 10:22 pm

Currently, India's #1 at a career best WR#109 and finished 3rd in the season ending tournament in Thailand this week to finish 3rd in the Asian order of merit.

This also seals his place as the only certain Indian entry for the inaugural EurAsia team tournament. I would imagine Jeev has an outside chance of being a captain's pick (jaidee is the Asian captain so might pick his old rival).

Won his first tournament outside India at the Indonesian Masters by making a 20-foot eagle putt on the last hole woohoo

This will take him into the top 75 of the world rankings (and win him $135k); the highest since Jeev was ranked inside the top 50. Well done Anirban!

Maybe one of the mods can change the title to reflect his current ranking as India's #1 and Asia's #2.

Anirban Lahiri moved to WR#65 after finishing T6 in The Championship 2014 at Laguna National Golf, Singapore last week. By next week if he can make it in top 60, he'll qualify for US Open. Next week he plays a smaller tournament ICTSI Philippine Open ($300,000) where he need to finish in top 3 to hopefully make it to top 60 based on current World Rankings. :goodluck:

Secures his European card for next 2 years in just his second start in the European Tour after getting his card. :clap:
Top of theOrder of Merit in Asia with a huge win and it will take some time for others to catch him. :clap:

Congratulations, Anirban.

Cam someone educate me as to how the tournament held in Malaysia is part of European tour. :-~ I am a novice as far as the tournament structure in golf is concerned.

Some events are co-sanctioned by Asian Tour & European tour...

Fantastic performance by Anirban Lahiri. He said at the start of the year that he needed to win a title in order to convert his EPGA card (earned through Qualifying school) into invitations to most tournaments -- and he did in style at more or less the very first hurdle!!! Utterly amazing stuff, and a spectacular final round to take the title!

As Ankit has mentioned this was co-sanctioned tournament between European tour and Asian tour ... Tour do these things to popularize tour in other regions. With Malaysian event for three weeks European tour is in Asia... This week another co-sanctioned event in Thailand and next week in India for Indian Open. If I am not mistaken then PGA tour also organize event in Australia and.Japan.
