The random round of training with Tiger Woods is the kind of luck that India’s Anirban Lahiri hopes to get back when he starts his campaign at the PGA Championship on Thursday.

Lahiri, who could play in major in the Southern Hills after his wife gave birth to their second child early Monday, arrived for a workout to find Woods on the first T-shirt box on Wednesday.

“There was some confusion about who was going, and then it was just me and Tiger, and he asked me (to play together), and why do I ever decline that invitation?” The 34-year-old told the PGA Tour.

“It was just a coincidence, it was a coincidence.”

“I actually played a little bit of golf with him, so going out and playing on nine holes, relaxing, was a lot of fun. He was very relaxed and very friendly, ”he added.

This allowed Lahiri to join the thoughts of the American, who won his fourth PGA Championship title in the South Hills in 2007.

“He’s obviously been talking about the change in Southern Hills since he was here last time, and it was good to see how he sees it on some holes,” said Lahiri, who finished second at the Players ’Championship in March.

After Woods wrapped up his nine holes, Bryson De Chambo joined Lahira on nine backs, though the major American has since withdrawn from the tournament as he continues to recover from wrist surgery.

“He swung 60% and still flew 320 yards, it’s just incredible what he managed to do with speed and distance,” Lahiri said.

“I joked with my caddy that we had a day when we did everything. We show up and then play with Tiger and the back nine with Bryson. ”
