Despite dropping five places from his overnight tied 11th position after his final round of 72, Anirban made the cut with a comfortable margin. The 2006 Asian Games silver medallist scaled new heights in 2014 and already has two titles under his belt on the Asian Tour this year.
Lahiri will now be the second Indian after Shiv Kapur to play on the European Tour as full card member in 2015. Meanwhile, Shiv is the only Indian to retain his card for 2015.
Besides Kapur, the other Indians who have had European Tour Cards in the past include, Jeev Milkha Singh, Jyoti Randhawa, Arjun Atwal, SSP Chowrasia and Gaganjeet Bhullar.
