New Delhi: An eagle and two birdies helped Anirban Lahiri go four-under in his last three holes as he finished tied 26th at the AT&T Byron Nelson Champi-onships in Dallas, US, on Monday.

Lahiri shot 4-under 67 and totalled 10-under 274 in a low-scoring event won by Aaron Wise (65), who achieved his breakthrough win with a record 23-under 265, three clear of overnight co-leader, Marc Leishman. At 21, Wise becomes the second youngest winner of the event after Tiger Woods.

“I feel like I took a big step forward in the right direction this week. However, I still need to tighten up my game off the tee and with the putter of course,” Lahiri said.

“I could definitely could have been 8-10 shots better with 70% efficiency from 5-10 feet. That’s the only factor coming in between my being in contention I feel.”

Wearing a smile after a long time, he added, “It felt really good to finish strong. Haven’t walked off the course with a smile in a while and that felt good today. It is time to build on this momentum going into next couple weeks.”
