He has competed in 10 events this year and has four top-10 finishes and two missed cuts. "Jordan is an incredible player, and we're all looking forward to seeing what he'll do this year against some strong competition".
Asked to put his finger on the reason behind such odd statistics, the three-time major victor told a pre-tournament press conference: "I love this place, I love the golf course but if you're not on it's (about) a lot of small areas".
"Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round". "I played pretty well a year ago except for the 18th and it'll be nice to get back out there and exact some revenge".
"I feel a lot of departments are working but my scoring hasn't been as good as I would like it to be", Lahiri added.
Nonetheless, the Columbus, Ohio-based star let slip a three-shot lead on the again 9 earlier than rallying with back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17 - the latter practically a gap in a single - to beat People Aaron Smart and Nick Watney. I'll either short side myself in that bunker, and just kind of situations like that where, say the patience side I seemed to display at Augusta is, OK, I'm out of position, what's the plan to make my par and move on. Lahiri, who exorcised somewhat demons at previous year at President's Cup, when he made up for a missing a putt inside four feet, which possibly cost the internationals the Cup, is seeking to do the same at PLAYERS. It was a big number. "There are holes that don't fit your eye and you've got to adjust". Lahiri has missed the cut at the PLAYERS twice, but is eager to set that right this week.
The two-time Presidents Cup International Team member made a strong start to the year with top-10 finishes at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia and the CJ Cup in Korea.
Question: Would you like an island green at your local course? Since then, Lahiri's form has been rather "off". The best was T-26 Genesis Open.
Reaching world No.1, it appeared, was simpler than staying there, and the Australian slid down the rankings from a seemingly impregnable place.
