Unfortunately for him, one of those two errors happened during the final round of the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters that concluded in Petaling Jaya on Sunday. That, and a missed birdie on the 72nd hole meant that Lahiri had to depend on Pariya Junhasavasdikul to slip up and force a playoff. He did not — Lahiri watched from greenside as the Thai holed a pressure putt from about five feet out for par to complete a wire-to-wire victory and, in the process, end a frustrating three-year wait for his second Asian Tour title.
Lahiri, who was trailing by just three strokes going into the final round, eventually carded a three-under 68 to finish in sole second place with a four-day total of eight-under 276. It means that his hunt for the elusive maiden pro victory on foreign soil continues. “I guess I have to wait a little longer for that win outside of India,” he said after the round, while adding that there were “a lot of positives.”
