Anirban Lahiri (born 29 June 1987) is an Indian professional golfer who currently plays on the Asian Tour.

Lahiri joined the Asian Tour in 2008. He picked up his first victory in 2011 at the Panasonic Open and his second victory in 2012 at the SAIL-SBI Open. His best finish on the Order of Merit came in 2009, when he finished in 24th.

Lahiri has had a lot of success on the Professional Golf Tour of India, where he has won nine events and the Order of Merit in 2009. He finished in 3rd on the Order of Merit in 2010 and 5th in 2011.

The big break came for him when qualified for his maiden major tournament – the 2012 Open Championship at the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club in Lancashire. He made it a most memorable outing, first by making the cut (68-72) and then with a hole-in-one at the par-3 9th hole in the third round en route to a T31 finish.

Lahiri broke into the Top 100 in the OWGR in March 2014.
