Avantha Masters: Anirban Lahiri confident of defending title

Lahiri registered only one top-10 after his maiden breakthrough in 2011 but enjoyed a memorable year in 2012 when he won his second Asian Tour title and enjoyed four other top-10s to end the season in 10th place on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.

Greater Noida: Three-time Asian Tour winner Anirban Lahiri of India is confident his mental strength will make the difference as he goes in search of a back-to-back victory at the 1.8 million euro Avantha Masters which tees off in Greater Noida on Thursday.

Fresh from securing his third Asian Tour win through yet another play-off on home soil last week, Lahiri believes the training from his Vipassna meditation will set him apart from the rest of the strong field at the Avantha Masters which is tri-sanctioned by the Asian Tour, European Tour and Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI).

"My Vipassna training has definitely helped me a lot. It's like swimming or cycling. Once you've learnt how it, you'll not forget how to do it anymore," said Lahiri (left in pic).
