Ace Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri is hoping the mixed fortunes he has endured over the past two weeks on the PGA Tour will change as he tees up at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Lahiri made the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii but had a disappointing outing at The American Express where he missed the halfway cut by one stroke. Both times, he looked promising at the start only to see that advantage thrown away with some errors.

He looked poised for a top-10 at the Sony Open but stumbled to a none-too-happy final round and finished down the leaderboard. Last week, he started with a solid first round 68, only to allow mistakes to creep into his game in the second round to miss the weekend play.

"Torrey Pines is always nice to come back to especially on a sunny day. It's been freezing cold. We had severe winds and the golf course was closed on Monday because of the winds dangerous conditions. But I got a nice practice round in today," said Lahiri, who is playing in his seventh year on the PGA Tour, as per a media release.
