Macau, China:

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri aims to fine-tune his game at the $750,000 Venetian Macau Open which starts on Thursday after several inconsistent weeks on Tour.

"I caught up with my coach. I wasn't very happy with the way I was hitting but it seems to be moving in the right direction now," said Lahiri.

"It was a bit of a shocking start with a great round and a bad round. It's been up and down, hot and cold all the way through.

"It's such a beautiful golf course here. It's in the best shape that I've ever seen it. My first year on Tour in 2008, I played with David Gleeson in the leader group during the third day. I've got good and positive memories of playing here. It's a layout that is quite challenging but it suits my eye. It's a lot of judgement and how you gauge the winds," added the two-time Asian Tour winner.

The tournament, to be played at the Macau Golf and Country Club, will have a strong line-up including three-time Order of Merit winner Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand and Masters Tournament winner Ian Woosnam of Wales while among others.

Chinese Taipei's Chan Yih-shin will also be back to defend his crown while two-time former winner Zhang Lian-wei of China has also returned for another crack at the title.
