Petaling Jaya (Malaysia), June 18 — Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri will rely on the short putter in his hunt for a fourth Asian Tour title at the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters Thursday.

The three-time Asian Tour winner, who previously used the belly putter, opted for the shorter flat stick at last week's Queen's Cup in Thailand where he finished tied 10th after fighting his way into contention.

Lahiri is among a star-studded cast which includes title holder Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand, Bangladeshi Siddikur, American Jonathan Moore, Filipino Angelo Que, Australia's Scott Hend and Korea's Baek Seuk-hyun at the $400,000 event.

"I'm feeling confident with the short putter which is important if I want to go on to win an event," said Lahiri.

"I wasn't thrilled with the way I was putting with the belly putter earlier. I had decided that I was going to try out the short putter in Thailand and Selangor and another two events back home before making a decision for the rest of the season."

He believes the Seri Selangor course will provide a stern test.

"I was telling some of the rookies that anyone who has come out for these two weeks are playing two of the toughest courses that we play all year. You won't see 16 or 17 under winning the tournament. Single digit might be good enough," said the 25-year-old.
