“I gave my best and I have plenty of opportunities to hit a good score but I missed the chance. I am little worried about my game in this round. I missed most of the hits because of the speed, and at some place a little firm through the break and some were short on the line. This makes me sad and not allowing me to celebrate for the holes which I succeed”, Said Lahiri.

“I made some poor tee shorts on the first hole and made another after some time in the front nine. I just went a little out from the game and it loss the touch from the game. I scored well to hit a par in the front nine but I left many good chances because of my poor performance”.

“Plenty of birdies can make the game easier but I didn’t make much good chances for me. I made some good par but I am not happy with my total game”, added he.

He was much sure about his selection to the next round.

Lahiri says that, “Hope I will enter the next round and I have to quit and improve my progress. In a round I have to gain some momentum and score 2-3-4 birdies continuously. I will concentrate in my second round”.
