Golfer Lahiri eyes strong showing at CIMB Classic

Oct 17 2013, 7:06am CDT | by IANS

Kuala Lumpur, Oct 17 (IANS) Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri is eyeing a top finish at the star-studded $7 million CIMB Classic next week to haul himself into the chase for the Asian Tour Order of Merit crown.

Kuala Lumpur, Oct 17 — Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri is eyeing a top finish at the star-studded $7 million CIMB Classic next week to haul himself into the chase for the Asian Tour Order of Merit crown.

Lahiri, a three-time Asian Tour winner, will be amongst a stellar cast at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club which will include include multiple Major winner Phil Mickelson of the United States, defending champion Nick Watney and Spanish stalwart Sergio Garcia.

Major champion Ernie Els of South Africa, former Masters Tournament winner Bubba Watson of the United States and Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand, the current Asian Tour No.1, will also feature in the CIMB Classic.

Lahiri, ranked eighth on the Order of Merit with $156,973, knows a strong week in Malaysia will put him in position to challenge for the Merit crown. He trails Kiradech by approximately $550,000.

"Obviously it will be a very important event that shapes the Order of Merit. Anybody that finishes high up that week is going to have a good chance at winning the Order of Merit," said the 26-year-old Lahiri, who has already won once this season.

The young Indian, who finished tied 26th here last season, knows there will be plenty to play for as the winner of the tourney will earn playing rights on the PGA Tour and a prized spot in the 2014 Masters Tournament.

"Giving it official status on the PGA Tour and on the Asian Tour will change the importance and stature of the event. The attitude towards the event will change and players will be more serious. There's a lot more on offer apart from the prize money and experience and I'm really looking forward to the challenge," said Lahiri.

Rory McIlroy’s Per Tournament Earnings Are Absolutely Eye-Watering

Sep 15 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: balls

Balls.ie A less than stellar round at the Tour Championship on Sunday may have caused Rory McIlroy to miss out on the biggest cheque in golf but we have a sneaky feeling his bank account won’t be hitting the red any time soon. The per tournament earnings for this year’s PGA Tour have been totted up and, quite simply, McIlroy blows everyone else out of the water. The Northern Irishman made nearly $500,000 per event over the past season. T ...

Ryder Cup 2014: Early Predictions for Team USA and Europe Entering Gleneagles

Sep 15 2014 2:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After what transpired in Medinah some two years ago, it's safe to say neither Team USA nor Europe will have a shortage of motivation entering the 2014 Ryder Cup. Team Europe's stunning comeback victory in 2012 dashed the Americans' hopes of an upset, and captain Tom Watson has been leading the charge of assembling a 12-man squad capable of knocking off the star-studded Europeans. It will be an uphill battle for the USA to defeat a Europe s ...
