Anirban Lahiri plays practice round with Tiger Woods ahead of PGA Championship

Indian golf player Anirban Lahiri’s week continued to get better even before he arrived at the tee in the initial round of PGA Championship as he got to rehearse close by the amazing Tiger Woods. Lahiri, who is showing up after almost three years, went with a late choice to turn up at Southern Hills, while hanging tight for the appearance of his subsequent child. He then, at that point, showed up at Southern Hills on Tuesday and when he got to the course for a training round on Wednesday, he found Woods without any other individual.

The 15-time Major hero inquired as to whether they could play together. Lahiri could barely trust this fortunate turn of events. Lahiri said, “I went to the primary tee and there were a couple of players there, and me and Tiger were waiting near. There was some disarray concerning who was going and it was then me and Tiger, and he asked me (to play together) and how could I at any point express no to that greeting! It was simply irregular, it was good fortune.” Woods played nine holes before he left and afterward Lahiri got to play nine holes with Bryson DeChambeau, who later pulled out as his hand is as yet not alright after a surgery.”Every time I see him, we make proper acquaintance and we talk. I really haven’t played a lot of golf with him, so to go out and play nine holes, sort of a chill day was loads of tomfoolery. He was really loose and well disposed, and we gabbed about our normal advantages including Arjun (Atwal), Jeev (Milkha Singh), and Hero (MotoCorp).

“He clearly discussed the progressions to Southern Hills since he was last here and it was great to get experiences on how he sees it on a portion of the openings,” said Lahiri. Lahiri had verged on pulling out of the occasion as his better half, Ipsa, was anticipating their subsequent child. He had decided to pull out in the event that the child didn’t come till Tuesday.
Be that as it may, his child Avyaan got him out of the issue by showing up early to join the family. Lahiri has a senior girl, as well.

When everything was fine, the time had come to make a few last-minute arrangements. Then, at that point, came the absolutely startling opportunity to play with Woods, who had succeeded at Southern Hills in 2007 for one of his four PGA Championship wins. Woods left after nine holes and Lahiri was then joined by lengthy hitting DeChambeau on the back nine.Lahiri has played once already with Woods more than three openings when the American hotshot flew into New Delhi in 2014 for a flying visit. Yet, since contending on the PGA TOUR in 2016, the Indian has gotten the opportunity to know the 82-time PGA TOUR champ after some time.
