Kuala Lumpur: Anirban Lahiri got off to a modest start, fumbling with a three-bogey stretch on the back nine to finish with a two-over 74 in the opening round of the USD 7 million CIMB Classic here on Thursday.

The 27-year-old Lahiri was going fine at one-under through 11 holes with two birdies and one bogey when he hit a rough patch with three bogeys in a row from 12th to the 14th.

However, Lahiri did not allow the round to deteriorate further as he parred the remaining four holes to live and fight another day as he was tied at 54th.
