Ace Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri nearly ended his seven-year jinx on the PGA Tour, but fell a stroke short to finish second in the $20 million Players Championship at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, on Monday. Lahiri walked away with a pay cheque of $2. 18 million (Rs 16. 7 crore), the biggest of his career, and probably the biggest ever for an Indian sportsperson from a one-week event. It was the 34-year-old’s second career runner-up finish.
