Anirban & Shubhankar make the cut for Valero Texas Open
Proven performer Anirban Lahiri and rising star Shubhankar Sharma will feature in the same PGA Tour event for the first time, when they tee off at the Valero Texas Open this week. Lahiri has now been a regular on PGA Tour for three seasons, but is still searching for his breakthrough win though he has come close a few times, including tied 2nd at Memorial last year. Meanwhile, Shubhankar makes a second start in Texas after having played on an invite at Houston Open. He also played at the Masters on an invite, but missed the cut on both occasions. Shubhankar hit global spotlight by leading after three rounds at the WGC-Mexico in his first PGA Tour event and ended ninth. At the WGC Matchplay, he lost all three matches. Yet as Lahiri tries to find his form back, Shubhankar will hope to create a place on the PGA Tour.
