September 14: A closing birdie saw India’s Anirban Lahiri sign for a one-under-par 71 to finish tied-sixth at the Hotel Fitness Championship, which is the first leg of the Web.Com finals.
The 28-year-old Indian, who leads the current Asian Tour Order of Merit with two victories, mixed his card with four birdies against three bogeys to finish six shots back of winner Henrik Norlander of Sweden on 13-under-par 275 total at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Norlander, who started the round six shots off the pace, produced a course record 62 to win his first title on the Web.Com Tour by three shots over American Michael Thompson (65) and overnight leader D.H. Lee of Korea (71).
Anirban Lahiri’s second shot rolls just inches from going into the cup setting up a tap-in birdie on the par-4 18th hole.
Anirban Lahiri’s second shot lands on the edge of the green within 10 feet and converts the putt for birdie on the par-4 8th hole.
Over at the KLM Open in the Netherlands, Australian Wade Ormsby closed with a one-under-par 69 to grab a share of 10th place at the Kennemer Golf and Country Club.
Ormsby, a one-time winner on the Asian Tour, traded three birdies against two bogeys to finish five shots off Thomas Pieters of Belgium, who won by one shot for his second European Tour title which came two weeks after winning his first.
Reigning Order of Merit champion David Lipsky of the United States capped his best round of the week with a 63 for tied-23rd place on 269 while Australian Scott Hend finished one shot back following a 68.
Sweden's Rikard Karlberg posted a second straight 68 to take a share of 36 place on 271 total at the KLM Open.
