Anirban Lahiri bounces back, finishes in top 10 at the Travelers Championship

Posted by Admin 25 Jun 2018

If one thing that can be said about India’s ace Golfer Anirban Lahiri is that consistency has been eluding him for a long time. After wrestling with his form for a long time, Lahiri displayed a lot of grit to play valiantly and earn a T9 finish at the Travelers Championship.

Bubba Watson, 17-under 263, won the third title of this season with an imposing 63 in the final round.


Watson finished three in front of Stewart Cink, Beau Hossler, J.B. Holmes and overnight leader Paul Casey. Incredibly, he worked his way back from a six-stroke deficit at the start of the final round to clinch the third victory in the Travelers, adding to successes in 2010 and 2015.

Anirban began his day with a brilliant 23-foot birdie putt on the 4th hole to set the tempo for a promising final round. But two bogeys over the next three holes, punctuated by a second birdie at the 6thmeant that he turned at even par for the day.



At the par-3 fifth hole, Anirban landed himself in the greenside bunker with the tee shot. A two-putt after working with the wedge left him with the first bogey on Sunday.



A brilliant chip, his third shot on the 574-yard par-5 sixth, helped Anirban to within two feet from the cup. But he went back to even when Anirban needed three shots to find the green at the par-4 7thhole. On a day when he made 14 of 18 greens in regulation, it was one of two holes that did not go to plan.



Despite landing in the fairway bunker working his way through the par-4 12th hole, Anirban played a brilliant 118-yard approach shot to set up another birdie.


Then came the other hole that did not go to plan. Working his way through the rough around the par-4 14th, it took Anirban four strokes to make his way to the green. A two-putt left him accounting for a double bogey that took some of the sheen off an otherwise stellar performance.
