Lahiri wins on his home soil

India's Anirban Lahiri won his second European Tour title in the space of three weeks after beating compatriot SSP Chawrasia in a play-off at Delhi Golf Club yesterday.

Lahiri, who won the Malaysian Open a fortnight ago, began the final round seven shots off the lead but a closing 69 was enough to force extra holes as overnight leader Chawrasia stumbled to a 76.

The home pair returned to the par-five 18th for the play-off and with Chawrasia unable to make par after hooking his tee shot into the trees, Lahiri holed from 10 feet for birdie. The win solidifies his place in the top 50 of the world rankings and a Masters debut in April.

Peter Lawrie had a disappointing final round of 75 to end up one over.
