Rio 2016: Anirban Lahiri and SSP Chawrasia fall further as India’s medal tally stays dry as dust
Anirban Lahiri scored a two over 73 and SSP an even par 71 to finish day 2 in Rio at tied 51 and tied 30 respectively.
Lahiri struggled throughout the day as he scored consecutive bogeys on the 4th and 5th hole before scoring a birdie at 6th. The Asian tour no. 1 again scored bogeys at the 7th and the 8th hole to get to three under, his poor form continued as he finished the day at tied 51.
SSP too didn’t start his day on a good note as he bogeyed the 2nd hole and double bogeyed on the par-four third hole. However, he fought his way back after birding the next two holes. Chawrasia finished the day at tied 30.
Indian podium finish in the golf’s men event seems a rare possibility now but the duo still has a day left and we hope that day 3 will bring some glory for the Indian golfers.
