Lahiri narrowly misses qualifying for The Open


Lahiri’s last appearance at The Open was in 2018

Anirban Lahiri, 36, currently in his third season on the LIV Golf Tour, tragically lost out in a sudden-death playoff for a spot in The Open Championship, after shooting 68-65 for a total of 5-under-par 137.

Lahiri was playing one of the four final Open qualifying venues.

He ended up tied with Mexico’s Abraham Ancer and Charlie Lindh, resulting in a three-way playoff for the two available spots but in the fading light and stiff wind, Lahiri bogeyed the first playoff hole, allowing Ancer and Lindh to advance to The Open Championship, scheduled for July 18-21 at Royal Troon near Glasgow, Scotland. Lahiri last competed in The Open in 2018 at the Carnoustie Championship Course, alongside Shubhankar Sharma.

Among notable players who failed to qualify for The Open was former major title winner, Sergio Garcia, of Spain.

Lahiri will now head to Spain for LIV Golf Valderrama from July 12-14 as he pushes to break into the top 24 in the LIV individual rankings which guarantee him an automatic spot on the LIV Tour 2025. He will also look to keep his team – Crushers ahead in the overall season-long LIV team standings, a title they won in 2023.
