India's Anirban Lahiri is set to tee off at the Sony Open in Hawaii beginning Thursday where he will aim for a strong start to his new year after three modest results at Waialae Country Club.
Lahiri returned to United States but got in only one more event before the 2019-20 season concluded. "Phoenix might be touch and go, but I think it's the same week as Saudi (European Tour) so I think I should get in".
He added, "So yeah, I could actually continue playing but I think as of now, I'm planning on just playing the first four and let us see how it goes. So I think it really brings ball-striking precision into it and a lot of mental game to understand how the ball is going to react when it hits the ground". Starting with the Safeway Open, he featured in four tournaments and made the cut in all, including the tied sixth finish in the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship and tied 11th in the Bermuda Championship.
Kisner will miss a few big events and at some exciting venues, such as Torrey Pines and Riviera, but Kisner tends to skip most of the West Coast swing anyway. Henley also plays great on the par-4's, ranking second on Tour in scoring average.
About the India trip in December, Lahiri said, "The golf was good, but I also put on weight in India, eating all the yummy food".
"Since I've come back (to the US) I've gotten back in the gym to get that weight off. I just don't attend those".
Seamus Power will get a chance to test his elbow and make a move towards winning back full playing rights after grabbing a last-gasp spot in this week's Sony Open in Hawaii. It was a nice Christmas and New Years with my family and then some of our friends, Indian friends will live in America. I think the last month or so has been has been good for me both on and off the golf course.
