Golfer Lahiri joint second

Golfer Lahiri joint second at Dean and Deluca Invitational

Fort Worth (Texas), May 27 (IANS) A fantastic five-under 65 helped ace Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri finish joint second in the opening round of the Dean and Deluca Invitational at the Colonial here.

Lahiri, one of the early starters from the tenth tee, is sharing the second spot with Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson, just one stroke behind leader Bryce Molder after Thursday’s round.

The 28-year-old holed a lot of putts and made good use of conditions despite play being halted for an hour and a half because of threat of lightning after he had played just three holes.

Lahiri had seven birdies and two bogeys. Starting on 10th, he birdied 11th from nine feet, the 14th from 20 feet and the 18th from six feet. But he also three-putted from 26 feet on 15th and from 22 feet on 17th, which included a four-footer miss for par.

On the second nine, the front side of the course, Lahiri missed a four-footer for birdie on first, but then putted well. It was his fine iron play on the last few holes that stood out and served him well, hitting it close.
