Anirban Lahiri shot a 67 in the final round to garner a total of 14-under 274 and win the Aircel PGTI Players Championship by two strokes at the Panchkula Golf Club here on Saturday.

Mukesh Kumar, with a round of four-under 68, collected an overall score of 276 for a second-place finish. Rashid Khan was third with an aggregate of 278.

Lahiri, who dropped two shots on his third and fourth, recovered to gather four pairs of birdies. His effort, boosted by some fine hitting, was good enough to earn him his seventh PGTI title even as he finished the final round by dropping a shot.

The Bangalore-based player got the winner's purse of Rs 6,46,600 to improve a notch in the Rolex rankings to be second.
