(REUTERS) - A truncated honeymoon is the price Asian Tour order of merit leader Anirban Lahiri will have to pay to make his second appearance at golf's British Open later this month.

The Indian world No. 81 was honeymooning in Madagascar when he learnt about being among the 10 golfers who secured their place for the July 17-20 Major at Royal Liverpool, Hoylake as the highest ranked non-exempt players.

"I am two days into my 10-day honeymoon. In the middle of a tropical rainforest in Madagascar and trying to get back to India now ASAP (as soon as possible)," the 28-year-old told the Asian Tour website.

"Total chaos. Will have to make it up to the wife big time. Super excited," said Lahiri, a four-time winner in Asia.
