Lahiri announced his departure from Srixon to join Callaway, a brand which is on an investment spree to compete against Titleist and TaylorMade.
“I have signed a multi-year equipment deal with Callaway Golf,” said Anirban. “I will be using their driver, woods, irons, wedges, and putter. I will also use their new Chrome Soft X 2018 ball.”
“I feel that it was an easy transition, as I have been playing the driver for most of my career. And the Apex MB irons are similar to the profile I have been playing in the last few years.”
Lahiri’s 2017 season and plans ahead
Lahiri currently ranked 68th in the World and 30th on the FedEx Cup had a splendid 2017 season which included T-2nd finish at the Memorial Tournament and garnered appreciation from the legendary Jack Nicklaus, T-3rd at the CIMB Classic and a T-9th at the BMW Championship.
His 2018 season too had a great start with a T-5th finish at The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, won by Justin Thomas in a playoff against Marc Leishman in South Korea, a T-10th at the CIMB Classic, and a T-14th finish at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba.
Well, one thing is clear Indian Golf is surely rising with Lahiri as it’s face, and giving a lot of Indian kids hope and motivating them to practice more to be better and great.
He will be seen representing the Asian Team at the upcoming EurAsia Cup from Friday in Malaysia.
