Golfers Anirban Lahiri and Arjun Atwal will represent India at the Bermuda Championship starting on Thursday. Lahiri, who left the tournament midway due to injury after a brilliant start last year, will play at Port Royal Golf Course in the morning with Scott Stallings and Wyndham Clark in the second group.
Lahiri said "Some work was left incomplete. It is a fantastic golf course. Here the biggest challenge comes from the air, and in such circumstances, I consider myself a better player."
The 33-year-old enjoyed a decent streak with a first top-10 in nearly two years and many top-40s in his first three starts in the 2020-21 PGA Tour season.
He finished T36 at last month's season-opening Safeway Open and T37 at the Sanderson Farms Championship to currently rank 51st on the FedEx Cup points list.
In his season so far, Lahiri, who came to India for the Hero Indian Open and then stayed because of the travel restrictions due to COVID-19 pandemic, said, "I played after a long break. I think it's been a bit of a mixed bag. I've obviously had one good result and a couple of average results."
"I'm really excited…it’s been three good weeks. I got a lot of work done, took some time off, kind of reflected on the start and also looked at areas that I need to work on and get better at. I’m playing much better. For me, it’s all about staying in the process and keep moving in that direction," Lahiri stated.
Arjun Atwal, who is back in action after four weeks, will play alongside Aaron Baddeley and Ben Martin, just over an hour after Lahiri.
"The course suits my eye. I have not played much since the Dominican event (Corales Puntacana, where Lahiri was T-6), so I am looking forward to this week. Lots of rest otherwise," - Atwal said.
