Cromwell : Anirban Lahiri ran into an inconsistent final round that included one really disappointing bad hole resulting in a double bogey at the Travelers Championships on Sunday. That cost Lahiri, lying Tied-3rd after 54 holes, a possible Top-3 finish as he shot 69 and finished T-9.
Meanwhile, Bubba Watson rallied from a six-shot deficit to win the Travelers Championships for the third time since 2010. It was his 12th PGA Tour win and the third this season as he rose to third in the FedExCup standings.
Watson (63) finished at 17-under and won by three shots over four players who were Tied-2nd and that included overnight leader Paul Casey (72), who seemed under pressure after first three rounds of 65-67-62.
Lahiri still took positives from the week, as he said, “It felt good to play consistently this week, but was disappointed to hit so many wayward shots today. Really felt like I played my C game, but glad that I held it together in the end and finished strong.
“I have a couple more tournaments to build on this before The Open. A lot of work and even more patience has gone into my golf this year. I am glad that I put four rounds together this week. I would have like to finish stronger but not too disappointed with the week overall.”
Lahiri, lying Tied-3rd after the third round, played the front nine in even par with two birdies and two bogeys. With a birdie on 12th, he was one-under through 13 despite missing a bunch of putts. Then came the disappointing Par-4 14th.
