Shanghai: India's Anirban Lahiri was left to rue a costly double bogey which consigned him to a first round two-over-par 74 at the $8.5 million WGC-HSBC Champions on Thursday.

The five-time Asian Tour winner trails opening round leader Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland by seven shots but is confident of reducing the deficit when he returns to the starting tee at the Sheshan International Golf Club on Friday.

"Today's just one of those days where things don't quite work out. But I don't have to reinvent the wheel as I'm playing well and I just got to keep that going," said Lahiri.
