Golfers from India have yet to make their mark as a superstar in the game, but Anirban Lahiri may be out to change that. He has played on the last two Presidents Cup teams for the International team, and is growing more comfortable on the American tour.

Lahiri, nicknamed “Ban” (pronounced bon), learned the game when he tagged along with his father, a doctor. He began his professional career on the Asian Tour in 2008 at the age of 20 and scored his first win in 2011. He continued to do well on that tour with several more victories before moving on to the European Tour. A two-time winner there, Lahiri made his way to the United States after working his way into the Official World Golf Ranking’s top 50. He played in the Masters and PGA Championship, where he finished fifth, in 2015, and qualified for the PGA Tour after participating in the Web.com Tour final series. He has secured his playing privilege for 2017-18, and many believe he has a game capable of winning multiple times in his career.

Lahiri also represented his country in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. The 30-year-old Lahiri is fluent in three languages and is married to the former Ipsa Jamwal.
