Hero Ambassador Anirban Lahiri feels like a good week is coming on ahead of the PGA Championship which begins at Whistling Straits on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Indian, who currently leads the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit, struggled at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week, finishing tied 53rd, but believes he can bounce back strongly at the year’s final Major.

“The game is feeling good. Bad back spasms did me in last Thursday unfortunately and I also had a tough time figuring out the greens,” said Lahiri, who is a two-time winner this season.

“I’ll be looking for a good start at Whistling Straits. Building momentum will be a key for me. I feel like a good week is around the corner. Mentally I really feel good, so I’m hoping for a strong week.”

A top result will reinforce Lahiri’s current ninth position on the International Team rankings for the Presidents Cup to face the United States in Korea this October. With the top-10 players as of September 8 qualifying automatically, Lahiri hopes to become the first Indian golfer to feature in the biennial team competition.
