A double bogey on the back nine almost ruined his day before Anirban Lahiri recovered to finish tied 9th after carding 69 in the final round of the Travelers Championships here.

Lying Tied-3rd after the third round, a possible Top-3 finish looked on the cards but Lahiri lost a couple of shots at the Par-4 14th hole before he managed to end the day with back-to-back birdies.

"It felt good to play consistently this week, but was disappointed to hit so many wayward shots today. Really felt like I played my C game, but glad that I held it together in the end and finished strong," said Lahiri.

"I have a couple more tournaments to build on this before The Open. A lot of work and even more patience has gone into my golf this year. I am glad that I put four rounds together this week. I would have liked to finish stronger but not too disappointed with the week overall."
