Vastavam web: Anirban Lahiri, the first Indian to play in the FedExCup play-offs, was lucky to qualify for the third leg of the event even after finishing a disappointing tied 56th at the Dell Technologies golf tournament here.It seemed Lahiri’s run in the FedExCup was over with only top 70 going into the penultimate round. But as things turned out with lots of permutations and combinations going the Indian’s way, he made the list for the next event, the BMW Championship right on the bubble at the 70th place.Pre-tournament projections suggested that Lahiri would need to finish inside top 41 to make the top 70 on the FedExCup points.
“After the final round, disappointment would be an understatement. I had played well, just as I had done past few weeks but I just have not been putting well. Maybe I just needed a bit of luck and it happened and I have a life so to say,” said Lahiri.”So I will now tee up at the BMW in Lake Forrest and hopefully the putter will work.”Meanwhile, the FedExCup play-off continued to evolve in an exciting manner.And for the second straight week, a FedExCup Playoffs event slipped out of Jordan Spieth’s hands.
