Since Anirban Lahiri becomes the first Indian to qualify for US open, more and more players are in the news. This week saw Anirban Lahiri reaching the second position at the halfway stage of the Hotel Fitness Championships, the first of the four Webcom Tour Finals in Fort Wayne USA on 12th September 2015. India’s Himmat Rai held the 13th position after the third round of the Thongchal Jaidee Foundation golf Tournament in Hua Hin. However, our other stalwarts like Jeev Milka Singh and Shiv Kapur failed to move past halfway through in KLM Open in Zanovooort.
Lahiri shot 7 under 65 to rise to the second position. He was 10-under 134 one behind the leader Jamie Lovenmark (67-66). Lahiri made a ton of putts on the front nine, after a long time. Lahiri hit only 50% of 14 fairways and found 11 greens in regulation, but his put was the key to getting him his second position. He needed 32 puts in the opening round and 22 in the second. After the opening birdie, Lahiri was on fire as he rolled in four more on the trot from 12th to 15th to five under through the first five of six holes. He continued the momentum into the second nine with some fine putting that included some good par saves. Having been 5 under (after6) his efforts in that nine saved him.
