Lahiri over Presidents Cup woe

Anirban Lahiri is determined to put the disappointment of the Presidents Cup behind him as he looks to defend his Macao Open title.

The Indian star was part of the International team that narrowly lost to the USA in the prestigious team event on Sunday.

The 28-year-old, who is the current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader, missed a three-foot birdie putt for a half point that could have altered the result of the biennial event.

But, as he prepares for this week’s tournament in the former Portuguese colony, Lahiri is determined to take the positives out of his South Korea heartache.

“It was a disappointing result but it was certainly not a disappointment,” he said. “What we witnessed last week is exactly the nature of the sport.

“What I experienced was what Scott (Hend) had experienced here last year. We both hit good putts and it didn’t go in. Sometimes you’re on the receiving end. You take it in your stride and take whatever you need to do to get better.”

Four-time major winner Ernie Els, Chinese stars Liang Wen-chong and Zhang Lian-wei plus 2013 champion Hend are all in this week’s line-up.
