Doral (USA): Anirban Lahiri made another upward move in the third round but was still left dissatisfied as he dropped two shots in last six holes, leaving him at five-under 211 and in tied seventh place at the World Golf Championships.
On a rather breezy day Lahiri was cruising as one of the better scorers at three-under through 12 and reached as high as fourth on Saturday.

But a bogey on 13th and another dropped shot on 17th saw him drop to tied seventh, but still two places higher than T-9 after the second round.
Lahiri, winner of two European Tour titles in 2015, including his home open, the Hero Indian Open, which he defends in a fortnight’s time, said, “Yeah, happy with the way I played today. (But) Obviously disappointed (too), left a few putts out there coming in. But all in all a good day. I think the course played its hardest today, so I’m happy with the way I played.”
Lahiri added, “This is the third day in a row that we’ve had a different wind. So honestly, I have no idea what to expect tomorrow in terms of the conditions. Obviously the course is getting a lot firmer.
I think at the end of the day, it’s going to be about not making mistakes. If you don’t drop a shot, there are plenty of opportunities for you to make birdie. I’m just hoping I can put a bogey-free round together.”
