New Jersey (the US): Golfer Anirban Lahiri is all set to return to the FedExCup finals starting Thursday after some uncertainty in the middle of the season.
Most experts feel that the 30-year-old has not been able to convert his talent into a title triumph. Lahiri began the season with two top 10 finishes, but then played in a subdued manner with his putter not doing its job.
Of late he picked up again with two more top-10s and one of them came in the very strong WGC-Bridgestone Invitational event.
It now remains to be seen how far he can go in the play-offs, as he tees up with Tyrell Hatton and Brandon Harkins for the first two days.
“Consistency is one thing that I will be emphasising on,” Lahiri told reporters here Tuesday after a round of practice. “If I can get my putting right, I hope to do good.”
Eyes will also be on Tiger Woods, who is the only two-time FedExCup champion and is making his first play-offs start since 2013. Woods is in the field this week for the first time since his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship.
