Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri got off to a steady start at the RBC Heritage as he brought home a card of two-under 69 to lie tied-32nd at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Thursday.
Lahiri, who returned to the field after a one week break, had a modest first round, in which he smashed four birdies against a double-bogey to finish day one in a respectful position.

Two-time Korn Ferry tour winner Cameron Young carded a super impressive 8-under 63 to grab the first-round lead at the PGA Tour US$ prize money event.
The PGA Tour rookie made eight birdies in a bogey-free round, his first in the 60s in 11 rounds since a closing 65 at the Honda Classic nearly six weeks ago..
Chilean golfer Joaquin Niemann also had a good day at work, as he posted six-under 65 to occupy the solo second place.
After a slow start that included back-to-back bogeys on the third and fourth holes, Niemann birdied seven of the last 14 holes to take sole possession of third place going into day two.
As many as eight golfers, including 2021 FedEx Cup Patrick Cantlay, were a further shot back at the tied-3rd place with matching scores of 5-under 66.
The pre-tournament favourite and the current World No.2 Collin Morikawa, who shot a decent 1-under 70, was at tied-54th spot alongside sixteen others.
