To make up for his lack of training, Lahiri, ranked 87th in the world, made an early trip to the United States to prepare and familiarise himself with the Jack Nicklaus design course.

"I played a practice round on Saturday and I'm super excited and really looking forward to doing well. I have just recovered and I'm slowly getting back to practice. Hopefully, I can put in a memorable performance at Valhalla," said Lahiri.
