Lahiri was in prime position for his fifth Asian Tour win.


Petaling Jaya, Selangor: Indian star Anirban Lahiri birdied three of his last five holes to maintain a tight grip in the weather-disrupted Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters on Friday. He holed a 20-feet birdie putt on the last hole for a three-under-par 68 to emerge as the second round leader on 10-under-par 132 in the USD 410,000 Asian Tour event.

Tour rookie Cameron Smith of Australia trailed closely by two shots following a 66 while another Indian S.S.P. Chowrasia was a further two shots back in third place after shooting a 70 at the Seri Selangor Golf Club.

Australia's Jake Higginbottom produced a flawless 65 which included an outward 31 to share fourth position with Thailand's Chapchai Nirat (69) while Chan Yih-shin of Chinese Taipei and Chris Gaunt of Australia were on five-under with three holes to play.
