Anirban Lahiri On A Four Shot Lead At CIMB Classic

It’s very satisfying, to finish the way I did definitely a big positive. I was determined today to keep my focus right through the 18 holes, and I’m happy I managed to do that. Just going to try and do the same tomorrow.

I just told myself that I got rid of my double-bogey early in the round today and just tried to focus on what I needed to do. You know, like I said, I feel like I’m hitting it good with my irons, my wedges and I’m putting it good.

So I just told myself to keep hitting fairways and giving myself chances, and made a couple of putts. Hit some close, so, yeah, very satisfying.

Funny enough what we worked on had nothing to do with me making birdies. We worked more on making sure that I get a little bit more confident off the tee. I think that’s still an area that I want to improve on.

I haven’t found as many fairways with my driver as I’d like, and that’s what we were working on because I felt like my swing is not 100 percent. It’s definitely better right now than where it was in Macau, no doubt, as you can see.

But I think the scoring aspect is more of a mental thing, and I think I’m quite focused on just what I need to do, which is hit fairways, try and hit it close and then use my advantage of having played here a few times before to know which way it’s likely to break. That’s what’s helped me make putts this week.
