'I need to work harder to maintain my position'

Anirban Lahiri might be India’s number one golfer at present, but the World No 106 feels he needs to work harder to not just maintain his position but improve it further in the next 24 months in order to qualify for 2016 Olympics at Rio de Janeiro.

The top two world ranked golfers from India will qualify for the Olympics and Lahiri is highest ranked at the moment, followed by Gaganjeet Bhullar and Shiv Kapur at 143rd and 144th positions, respectively, in the World Golf rankings list.

“I don’t know exactly when the cut-off date is, but as the Olympics are in 2016, I don’t expect it to be before end of 2015, which basically means I have got 24 months not only to maintain my level but to improve and get into the Olympics. If I go there only with the goal of being where I am then I will only move backwards.”
