India’s Anirban Lahiri is tied for 4th after the second round of the PGA Championships held in Wisconsin. Lahiri was tied for 15th after the conclusion of first round and came up with an excellent performance in the second to finish 4th. The tournament is currently halfway through and if Lahiri can hang on, he will be in line for a strong finish.
Impressive Second Round from Anirban Lahiri
A string of birdies and two steady pars in the second round helped Anirban finish with five-under 67. He scored a Hat-trick of birdies in the last five holes. He had another three in the first 13 as well and this ensured a high finish for the Indian. His round proved to be the best performance by an Indian golfer at a major. The record was previously held by Jeev Milkha Singh, Anirban Lahiri himself and Shiv Kapur at 68.
If Lahiri manages to keep his form, he could also end up being the best performing Indian at a Major. Lahiri is clearly optimistic about the same.
“There hasn’t been a massive difference in how the course has played. Obviously, wind’s a factor that can come and go but in terms of how the greens or the fairways have rolled out or the roughs have held up, the bunkers, they have all been very, very consistent. So there’s not that much that’s going to change,” he said.
Australian Matt Jones is currently leading the pack with scores of 68 and 65 from the first two rounds, with fellow country man Jason Day sitting in second place. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods missed the cut and was knocked out of the tournament.
