Anirban Lahiri recovers from Covid-19, returns to action at Bryon Nelson Classic

Ace Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri is all set to return to PGA Tour action after almost a month-long gap when he tees up at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Lahiri, who was tested positive for Covid-19 two weeks back, has been fully recovered, and now he is charged up to play at the professional level.

The 33-year-old Lahiri will start his Byron Nelson campaign with Aaron Baddeley and Kelly Kraft, and the trio will tee off from the tenth at the TPC Craig Ranch, United States.

The 2021 PGA season has been a rollercoaster ride for Anirban so far, in which he missed six cuts in nine starts this year. His best finish season was fifth at the Texas Open.

The 2016 Rio Olympian Lahiri is looking to end his victory drought as his last worldwide title was at home in the Hero Indian Open in 2015.

The 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama also marks his return after his unforgettable win at the Augusta National in April. 

Top-stars including Brooks Koepka, Jason Day, Bryson DeChambeau, Matt Kuchhar, Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler, Jordon Spieth, and many more will be seen in action this week at the PGA Tour event.

Bryson Nelson (13-16 May) is the last event before the men’s second major championship of the year. The PGA Championship will commence May 20 at Kiawah Island.
