India’s Anirban Lahiri successfully defended his title at the SAIL-SBI Open following a thrilling play-off win over Rashid Khan on Saturday.
The 25-year-old Lahiri birdied the 18th hole from 10 feet in regulation play to force extra-time and then claimed his third Asian Tour victory with a four-foot birdie conversion on the same hole in front of a large gallery at the Delhi Golf Club.
Khan (22) gave himself a great chance of a maiden title on the region's premier Tour with a superb final round of six-under-par 66 which included a closing birdie but he could not prevent a dominant Lahiri, who signed off with a 68, from grabbing the winner's cheque of USD 54,000.
