Anirban Lahiri Biography – Anirban Lahiri Wiki
Anirban Lahiri is an Indian professional golfer who currently plays on the Asian Tour and PGA Tour. He previously played on the European Tour and Professional Golf Tour of India.
Lahiri was introduced to golf at the age of 8 by his father, an Army officer and recreational golfer. India has fewer golf courses and many of them, Lahiri told The New York Times, were built for the Army. Because his father is a military doctor, Lahiri had access to courses that otherwise would have been off limits to him.
“I think one of the issues in India, there’s not as many courses as America; it’s not as public a sport,” he said. “And yeah, a lot of the credit for my exposure to the game goes not just to my dad but also to the armed forces.”
Lahiri was drawn to the game because it was a chance to spend time with his father, Dr. Tushar Lahiri, a recreational player.
“I would just go out there and I would go pick up golf balls for him, and we would go chip, putt for 15 minutes because it was getting dark,” Lahiri said. “That’s how it all started.”
When Lahiri took up the game, he was 8 years old. He had the impression that no other children played the sport.
“I was the only person on the golf course who was under the age of 30,” he said, adding: “Then I played a junior event when I was about 12. That’s the first time I saw kids my age play.”
The tournament was held at Royal Calcutta Golf Club, and the fairways were the most pristine he had ever seen. He finished fifth in the eight-player field.
He turned professional in 2007. Since turning professional, the golfer has 18 professional wins on the European Tour, the Asian Tour and the Professional Golf Tour of India.
The golfer won at the 2009 Haryana Open [India], 2009 BILT Open [India], 2010 Players Championship [India], 2010 Players Championship [India], 2010 BILT Open [India], 2011 Players Championship [India], 2011 Players Championship [India], 2011 Panasonic Open [Asia], 2012 SAIL-SBI Open [Asia], 2013 SAIL-SBI Open [Asia], 2013 Players Championship [India], 2013 Eagleburg Open [India], 2013 Tour Championship [India], 2014 PGTI Ahmedabad Masters [Ind], 2014 CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters [Asia], 2014 Venetian Macau Open [Asia], 2015 Maybank Malaysian Open [Eur], and the 2015 Hero Indian Open [Eur].
