Anirban Lahiri claims tied 11th at The Honda Classic, his second best result of the season

Moves up nine places to 32nd in the FedExCup Rankings

India's Anirban Lahiri (65-68-71-71) claimed tied 11th place at the PGA Tour's The Honda Classic on Sunday after he carded a second straight one-over-71 in round four.

Lahiri's final round effort moved his total to five-under-275 for the tournament and saw him drop three places from his overnight tied eighth.

American Rickie Fowler won the event with a total of 12-under-268.

Anirban was three-over through the first 13 holes but managed to pull it back somewhat with consecutive birdies on the 16th and 17th.

It was Lahiri's second-best result of the current PGA Tour season after his tied third at the CIMB Classic last October.

The Indian moved up nine places from 41st to 32nd in the FedexCup Rankings after his creditable finish at the PGA National.
