Improvement just around the corner - Lahiri
Anirban Lahiri believes he can start showing improvement as he attempts to win back his PGA Tour card.
It has been 18 months to forget for Lahiri, who has slipped from 66th in the world rankings at the start of 2017 to 308th in the standings, having failed to pick up a win since the 2015 Hero Indian Open.
The 32-year-old has missed eight cuts in 2019 and has failed to record a single top-10 finish this year, which has resulted in him losing his PGA Tour card for the 2019/20 campaign after he finished outside of the top 125 players in the FedEx Cup charts.
Lahiri still has the chance to gain his playing rights for the next season in the upcoming Korn Ferry Tour Finals - a series of three tournaments from which the top-25 players based on accumulated points will earn a card - and he is feeling optimistic after recent developments in his game.
Speaking to Firstpost from his West Palm Beach residence, he said: "These are good signs for me. I am now focused on improving my game and I am not thinking about the results.
"I want to hit the ball better every day, I want to roll the ball a little better on the greens and I want to improve my proximity on the greens with every round. I want my mistakes to be in play. I think that is a good mindset to have before something as important as the Korn Ferry Tour Finals."
