Kuala Lumpur: A fine performance at the inaugural EurAsia Cup has boosted his confidence and Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri believes he will have an edge in next week's Maybank Malaysian Open where he is aiming for a fourth Asian Tour victory. Lahiri defeated Victor Dubuisson of France 2 and 1 in the singles to help Team Asia earn a memorable 10-10 draw in the EurAsia Cup and the 26-year-old hoped to continue his good form when he starts his campaign at the showpiece event at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club from April 17-20.

"I'm looking forward to coming back to Malaysia. The EurAsia Cup was a phenomenal week for all of us and there will be lots of positivity every time I come back to Malaysia now. I'm playing well and hopefully I can keep the form going in the next few weeks," said Lahiri.

After winning three Asian Tour titles on home soil, the talented Indian is determined to claim his biggest career victory yet in his burgeoning career. "I think I've learned over the years and improved from the initial hiccups. I'm pretty much at home now with my game. I've had some good performances and hopefully this year, I will have a breakthrough performance (winning a co-sanctioned tournament)," he said.
