Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Justin Rose are to take turns in hosting the British Masters, an event that will return to the European Tour calendar this season for the first time in seven years.
Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri charged into contention at the $3 million Maybank Malaysian Open, shooting a stunning 10-under-par 62 Saturday to trail third round leader Bernd Wiesberger of Austria by five shots.
Bernd Wiesberger birdied six of his first seven holes en route to his best European Tour score yet, a nine-under 63 that catapulted him past defending champion Lee Westwood and into the Malaysian Open lead after three rounds.
Spaniard Alejandro Canizares picked up three shots in his last four holes to card a spot-free seven-under-par 65 and surge into a tie for the lead with champion Lee Westwood at the halfway stage of the Malaysian Open on Friday.
Anirban Lahiri frittered away a great start at five-under through 13 holes, before a lapse in concentration saw him drop as many as three shots over next four holes to finish at two-under 70, that still placed him tied 16th after the first day at the USD 3 million Maybank Malaysian Open here on Thursday.
Anirban Lahiri was "scared" when he made his Maybank Malaysian Open debut five years ago but the star Indian golfer tees up at the Asian Tour’s season-opening $3 million showpiece Thursday as one of the top contenders at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club's West course.
England`s Lee Westwood won the Asian Tour`s $1 million Thailand Golf Championship by one shot on Sunday after U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer and third-round leader Marcus Fraser both slipped up at the end.
Lee Westwood ended a two-year European Tour title drought at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club in April and he is confident the venue can also help him return to the PGA Tour`s winners circle this week.
Enjoying a fantastic run of form which saw him claim his fifth Asian Tour title last week, Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri today said he can now claim to have the game to beat the sport's top names at the cash-rich CIMB Classic starting on Thursday.
