Lahiri ready to rumble

INDIAN star Anirban Lahiri is ready to showcase his talent at the Fiji International which starts at the Natadola Bay Championship Course this morning.

Lahiri, who has fully recovered after suffering from chicken pox last month, arrived in the country yesterday from Los Angeles on a delayed flight.

The 27-year-old from Bangalore currently leads the Asia Tour of Merit.

Lahiri competed at the US PGA Championship at Valhalla, Kentucky last weekend missing the cut by two shots.

"There were a lot of weather issues in America and I ended up missing our connecting flight to Fiji on Monday," he said.

"I was really disappointed not to play the four rounds last week. I wasn't physically 100 per cent as I was recovering from chicken pox from about 15 days back from then.

"It was good to get that out of the way," Lahiri said.

"I got to Valhalla and I was actually in pretty good shape. I was disappointed but happy my game is beginning to come back."

Lahiri, who is ranked 90 in the world, tees off at 11.55am with Australian Craig Parry and Korea's Bi-O Kim.
