India's rising golfer Anirban Lahiri fired a career low nine-under-par 62 to enjoy a runner-up finish at the Venetian Macau Open in the company of his idol Arjun Atwal yesterday.

The 26-year-old Lahiri matched the nine-year-old course record held by compatriot Amandeep Johl at the Macau Golf and Country Club as he ended the week three shots behind champion Scott Hend of Australia.

“I’m really pleased. I played really good right from the start. Yesterday was a similar story but I ran into some trouble on the back nine. I’m glad I kept my cool and played solid in the end,” said Lahiri.
