Gaganjeet Bhullar, Anirban Lahiri eye strong start to season

Lahiri is in a hurry to get his season off on a strong note as he is aiming to break into the world's top-100. Big-hitting Bhullar, 24, has already accumulated four career victories on the Asian Tour. He finished tied sixth in the SAIL-SBI Open and equal second in the Panasonic Open India last year at the Delhi Golf Club, results which will give him the confidence.

New Delhi: India's rising stars Gaganjeet Bhullar and Anirban Lahiri will be targeting a home victory when they make their 2013 Asian Tour debuts at the $300,000 SAIL-SBI Open golf tournament next week.

The talented duo enjoyed memorable seasons last year with Bhullar securing two victories at the Macau Open and Tournament Players Championship in Taipei en route to finishing a career-high fifth on the Order of Merit while Lahiri won the SAIL-SBI Open and also produced an outstanding Major debut at the British Open where he tied for 31st place.

Lahiri, 25, hopes that time spent working on his putting and short game will produce the birdies when he defends his title at the venerable Delhi Golf Club March 6-9 in what is the second tournament of the new Asian Tour season.
