Lahiri placed fourth at halfway stage of The Honda Classic

Trails the leaders by two shots

India's Anirban Lahiri, who made his best start on the PGA Tour this season with a five-under-65 in round one of The Honda Classic on Thursday, put together another solid effort of two-under-68 in round two of the event to lie fourth at seven-under-133.

Lahiri thus trailed the joint leaders, Ryan Palmer and Wesley Bryan of the Unites States, by two strokes. American star Rickie Fowler was one shot ahead of Anirban in third place.

Anirban had a quiet first nine (10th to 18th) where he made pars all the way. But on his second nine, the Indian star came up with birdies on the first, third and fifth before dropping his only bogey on the seventh.

Interestingly, Lahiri's current home in the United States is just a stone's throw away from the PGA National course, the venue of The Honda Classic.
