NEW DELHI – Anirban Lahiri grabbed his second European Tour title as he beat overnight leader Shiv Chowrasia on the first playoff hole at the Hero Indian Open on Sunday.

Lahiri, who won the Maybank Malaysian Open two weeks ago, returned a 2-under 69 that helped him bridge a seven-stroke lead and catch up with fellow Indian Chowrasia on an overall 7-under 277.

Chowrasia, who shared the lead with four others on the opening day before taking sole lead over the next two rounds, finished runner-up for the fourth time in the tournament. He returned five bogeys and a double-bogey in a dismal card of 76.

Defending champion Siddikur Rahman of Bangladesh, who was second after the third round, also carded a poor 76 to finish joint seventh along with two others.
