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.

Why golfers shouldn’t be frustrated by their release

Oct 14 2014 3:24pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

What’s the “release” in a golf swing? For purposes of this article, I’ll define it as the point in the swing when the lead arm and the golf club begin to become a straight line. Whenever the release occurs for you isn’t as important as this; you can play your best golf with the release you have right now. That’s why you shouldn’t be frustrated that you don’t have the late release of Sergio Garcia. His “lag,” which is golf lingo for a late relea ...

Phil Mickelson’s Ryder Cup blame game lets 'useless' Nick Faldo off the hook

Sep 30 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

Nick Faldo would be cleaning up his own ‘useless’ mess today were it not for Phil Mickelson’s indirect bashing of U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson. Phil Mickelson, who said what almost everyone else in Ryder Cup circles wanted to say about the captain’s flagrant mishandling of a U.S. team that weathered another demoralizing defeat Sunday, has been bashed far and wide for his opinions as well as the timing of his Watson slam. Without naming names (we’re looking at you, Tom Watson), ...
