Lahiri set to tee up in Mexico on PGA Tour

Press Trust of India  |  Playa del Carmen (Mexico) 

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri will tee up alongside German Alex Cejka and Matt Jones at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Lahiri is probably playing in one of his last events of 2017. He has played three events in 2017-18 wrap-around season with two Top-10s. He was T-10 at CIMB Classic and then T-5 at CJ Cup in Korea.

At the Shriners Hospital Open, it was much lower at T-51.

In the calendar year 2017, he has had 25 starts with one second place at the Memorial (2016-17 season) and five other Top-10 finishes.

Rickie Fowler is the highest-ranked player in the field at tenth and perhaps the most anticipated first-timer in the event's 11-year run.

Fowler called his last five weeks "somewhat of an off- season". He got to the Riviera Maya on Saturday and is looking forward to the event.

Patrick Reed is also making his first OHL start.

Fowler will spend some time at home in Jupiter, before he plays the Hero World Challenge in Bahamas and then and the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
