Mumbai: Anirban Lahiri might be India's number one golfer at present, but the World No. 106 feels he needs to work harder to not just maintain his position but improve it further in the next 24 months in order qualify for 2016 Olympics at Rio de Janeiro.
The top two world ranked golfers from India will qualify for the Olympics and Lahiri is highest ranked at the moment, followed by Gaganjeet Bhullar and Shiv Kapur at 143rd and 144th positions, respectively, in the World Golf rankings list.
"The top two world ranked golfers from India would qualify for the Olympic Games. As of now I am the highest ranked. Then there is Gaganjeet (Bhullar) and Shiv (Kapur)," Lahiri told PTI at a press conference on Louise Philip Cup tournament here.
