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.

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 ...

The joint press conference for Europe was a bit more lighthearted and fun. The tone was set early by Jamie Donaldson, who rode Thomas Bjorn into the media center, slapping him on the ass like a horse. From ...

But it was still more than enough for the Europeans to halt any thoughts of a United States comeback.Jamie Donaldson holed out a putt on No. 15 to close out Keegan Bradley 4-and-3 to help the Europeans clinch their third straight Ryder Cup victory. The hosts finished out the event with an 16.5-11.5 overall victory, eclipsing the consecutive 14.5-13.5 marks of the la ...

Sergio Garcia celebrates Ryder Cup win like a doofus

Sep 28 2014 11:19am CDT | Source: SBNation

Sergio Garcia celebrates as only he can. Sergio Garcia is one of the best Ryder Cup players of all time. He's been an antagonizing pest for the American side for 15 years now, and Sunday was no different. Sergio came back on Jim Furyk in Sunday singles, the same man he pulled off a critical comeback win over on Sunday at Medinah two years ago. The point from his win mattered little, as Europe had already ...

Seve is always on the mind of the European side at the Ryder Cup, especially the Spaniards. We've chronicled this week how incredible the scene is at the first tee of the Ryder Cup, and the Euro Tour added an element by creating a "coming out of the tunnel" entrance much like you'd find in other major sports. It's been cool to see these guys emerge out of the lit tunnel to a few thousand fans roaring at ...
