Anirban Lahiri of India led a quartet of golfers securing places at the British Open in a qualifying tournament at the Amata Spring Country Club on Friday. Lahiri overcame a rain shower during his final round to card a 67 for a 9 under total of 135 to win the Open Championship International Final Qualifying. He will be joined at Royal Lytham on July 19-22 by Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand, Kodai Ichihara of Japan and Mardan Mamat of Singapore. Japanese amateur Hideki Matsuyama was on course to finish among the qualifiers when he reached 6 under after nine holes but his round unraveled with a double bogey on 16 and a bogey on 17 that left him needing par at the last. After a lengthy rain delay to play the final hole, he could only manage a triple-bogey seven to miss out.
