Presidents Cup set to to tee off today
Anirban Lahiri will look to erase memories of previous Presidents Cup after he was handed another chance by captain Nick Price for the 2017 edition of the prestigious tournament which begins at the Liberty National Golf Club here on Thursday.
Two years ago, Lahiri missed a short putt on 18th and lost his singles match on the final day, which tilted the match score in favour of US by just one point.
Lahiri, who became the first Indian to play in the biennial Presidents Cup, was handed another chance to complete the unfinished business when he was selected by Price as his second and final pick for the 2017 team that includes three Australians, three South Africans and one each from Japan, Korea, Venezuela, Canada, Argentina and India.
The Presidents Cup features the United States against the Internationals, made up of players from all over the world except Europe. The event will be held Thursday through to Sunday.
“Team events like the Presidents Cup mean a lot. It is the time you play not only for yourself, but also for the others on the team. So, the pressure is there but it is something we all enjoy and thrive on,” said Lahiri.
