SENTOSA (SINGAPORE), Dec 14: India�s Anirban Lahiri has described lifting the coveted 2015 Asian Tour�s Order of Merit crown as �really special� as he reset his goals to winning in America and becoming a Major champion in the near future.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a stellar campaign this season where he won twice on the region�s premier Tour, broke into the world�s top-50, posted a top-five finish in a Major, qualified for his maiden Presidents Cup and earned his PGA Tour card.
As he savoured the rewards, Lahiri said he was honoured to join Asian golf legends such as Thongchai Jaidee and Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand and countrymen Jeev Milkha Singh, Arjun Atwal and Jyoti Randhawa as Asia�s number one golfer.
�It�s something that I�ve always wanted to win,� said Lahiri, who finished third and second on the Merit list in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
�I feel really happy and it makes me really proud to be in the same league of players like Thongchai, Jeev, Arjun, Thaworn and Jyoti as they are all legends of the game and have won the Order of Merit. It�s nice to be in the same bracket and have something in common. It�s something that is really special.� � PTI
