Lahiri fires five-under 66

India’s Anirban Lahiri adjusted very well to cold and heavy rains as he shot a five-under  66 on the first day of the 2.1 million Euro Omega European Masters here on Thursday.

Lahiri, who is ranked 217 in the world, is tied for the first place with England’s Robert Coles and Welsh player Rhys Davies. Lahiri admitted he was lucky to start in the morning and he made good use of the weather conditions. “The conditions were good early morning when we started but it just kept getting worse and worse,” said Lahiri, who this year made the cut at The Open at Royal Lytham and finished tied 31st.

Gaganjeet Bhullar, a team-mate of Lahiri when India won an Asian Games silver medal in 2006, shot 72 and Chiragh Kumar, runner-up at the 2011 Indian Open, carded 77.
Other Indians, who were still on course or were yet to start included SSP Chowrasia, Jyoti Randhawa, Shiv Kapur and Digvijay Singh.
