Lahiri, who was tied for 15th after the third day of play, dropped further in the last round to finish tied for last along with Hideki Matsuyama. Meanwhile, Bubba Watson went home with the championship while Patrick Reed finished second. Lahiri carded a score of 72 in the last round and it was not a result that he wanted.

“It was a very disappointing week. It becomes all the more disappointing because the course was gettable. Frankly, I played a good first 27 holes at which stage I was seven-under and somewhere after that I lost focus.Its been a great year, but I seemed to have run out of gas towards the end in the last 3-4 weeks in WGC, China and here. Now I am looking forward to a four-five week break to recharge my batteries and start the new season again in mid-January,” Lahiri said.

Despite the forgettable finish, Lahiri said that he enjoyed the stay in Bahamas. He shared the limelight with some elite stars and it is an experience that Lahiri will cherish for his life.

“That’s what we play golf for, to play against the best and it was a great week. It was an amazing experience. Hero put up such a great show and were world class. Its just that on the course my ‘A’ game wasn’t there.” He added.

Lahiri will next be seen in the EurAsia Cup in Malaysia.
