Lahiri eager to taste first win

Lahiri eager to taste first win
Star Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri hopes his debut at this week’s $9.25 million World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship will lead him a step closer towards his dream of becoming India’s first Major champion.

The 27-year-old Lahiri, the current Asian Tour number one, won the Maybank Malaysian Open and Hero Indian Open in a span of three weeks last month. He also rose to 34th in the Official World Golf Ranking. His ranking puts him in position to play in all four Majors and qualify for the International team for the Presidents Cup this season.

However, an appearance at the Trump National Doral in Miami this week will offer a litmus test on Lahiri’s rapid rise onto the world stage. But the Indian is prepared to stick to his learning curve. In his first WGC appearance at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai last year, Lahiri finished tied 28th.
