Lahiri set to open 2021 with Sony Open in Hawaii
Lahiri set to open 2021 with Sony Open in Hawaii

Honolulu (Hawaii), Jan 14 (TIWN) India's Anirban Lahiri is set to tee off at the Sony Open in Hawaii beginning Thursday where he will aim for a strong start to his new year after three modest results at Waialae Country Club.

His results towards the end of 2020 saw his rankings go up and that earned him spots in at least first three events beginning with the Sony Open.  Lahiri said, “The schedule (for 2021) so far is looking good. At the moment, I should get into the first four (events) starting with Sony Open, then the American Express and then Torrey Pines, and hopefully (Waste Management Open) Phoenix. Phoenix might be touch and go, but I think it's the same week as Saudi (European Tour) so I think I should get in.”  He added, “So yeah, I could actually continue playing but I think as of now, I'm planning on just playing the first four and let us see how it goes. I am feeling good with the game. And I would love to do well in Hawaii.”  The year 2020 was unlike none before in his life and it was the same. His form dipped and there were not enough tournaments, but the silver lining was that the status he had for 2020 was retained as per PGA Tour’s decision. “That was a big boost for many of us,” he said.
