Family key to Lahiri’s success

Lahiri forms part of a strong Asian contingent at the world's oldest major, which takes place from July 16-19.
 
"My entire family is going to be there and my coach is going to be there with me. This trip is going to be very special for me as both my mum and dad are going to be there for the first time together at a professional event and of course, my wife," the 28-year-old told the Asian Tour.
  
"[My wife Ipsa Jamwal] has been fantastic. It's great to have her by my side. The last couple of months have been fantastic. We recently celebrated a year of marriage and it's wonderful for me to have her especially for my trips to America because it's very different from the Asian Tour where I know everyone." 
 
Since tying the know in May last year, the Asian Tour Order of Merit leader has won four tournaments that included two victories in co-sanctioned events with the European Tour in Malaysia and India.
 
"It's very important to have the kind of company and support that I get from my wife especially when you're traveling. She has been taking care of me and it has been wonderful," he added.
 
After missingthe cut at The Open last year, Lahiri is determined to better his result from his 2012 debut where he finished tied 31st at Royal Lytham and St Annes, which included a hole-in-one during his third round.
