After claiming a sensational one-stroke victory at the Macau Open golf championship on Sunday, Indian star Anirban Lahiri said his ability to "keep coming back" and rock-solid nerve helped him keep focus. Lahiri claimed a thrilling win at the USD 900,000 Macau Open after frontrunner Scott Hend of Australia agonisingly bogeyed the last hole on Sunday.
Lahiri started the final round two shots behind overnight leader Hend and trailed by four at one stage at the Macau Golf and Country Club before rallying on the home stretch to pip Hend and Thailand's Prom Meesawat. The 27-year-old Indian signed for a final round of five-under-par 66, which included six birdies, and a winning aggregate of 17-under-par 267.
The winner's cheque for USD 162,000 raised Lahiri's season's tally to USD 504,689 as he consolidated his second place on the Asian Tour's Order of Merit and narrowed the gap on leader David Lipsky of the United States.
