Rough day for Lahiri at #PGAChamp


By V Krishnaswamy

Charlotte, NC, US, Aug 13: Anirban Lahiri had a day to forget after ending round three with a five-over-par 76 at the 99th PGA Championship on Saturday.

The 2015 Asian Tour number one traded three birdies, four bogeys and two disappointing double bogeys after struggling with a cold putter at the Quail Hollow Club. Lahiri is currently tied for 68th place on an eight-over-par 221 total.

Korea’s K.T. Kim was a stroke better than Lahiri as he shared 64th place in the year’s final Major where Kevin Kisner leads on a 206 total.

Lahiri said, “I would be putting things mildly if I said I was disappointed. It was one of those days, when nothing went my way. And to think it happened on a day when I hit the ball of the tee so well. I think I hit it the best this season and it was on this day that putting and chipping let me down.”

On his plan for the final day, he said, “On Sunday I will try and repair as much damage as I can and hopefully create some momentum to carry me through the next three weeks that I will be playing through Wyndham and the first two weeks of FedExCup play-offs.”
