Anirban Lahiri gets T3 finish in Barbasol Championship

Anirban Lahiri was in contention for a win after posting rounds of 68, 67 68 in the first three days of the Barbasol Championship.
 
Anirban entered the final round at thirteen under par, he commenced round four by scoring 34 (-2) in front nine to move -15. Anirban’s back nine was fantastic as the ace Indian golfer started his back nine by getting consecutive birdies on the first two holes (10, 11) to move -17.
 
One hole later, Anirban got an unfortunate bogey on hole 13 to move -16 but that didn’t affect his focus because Anirban continued to get birdies as he again got back-to-back birdies (14, 15) to move -18.
 
Anirban took a break by getting an even-par on the par-4 16th, then he continued his charge for his maiden PGA Tour victory as he got successive birdies for the fourth time on day four in the last two holes (17, 18) to move -20.
 
Despite getting a mammoth score of -20, Anirban missed out on his first-ever PGA Tour win by just one stroke because after the event ended, JT. Poston, Seamus Power were tied at -21, they played the playoffs which Seamus eventually won.
 
Hole thirteen’s costly bogey:
In Anirban’s final round, he scored 8 birdies, dropped shot only once on hole 13 but if he had managed to score a par or better on that hole (13) then there would be a possible three-way playoff between Seamus, JT, and Anirban.
 
Still, a T3 is an excellent finish, it will be a huge confidence booster for Anirban before he plays in the Tokyo Olympics.
