Anirban Lahiri makes cut but drops down in windy conditions at Arizona

Scottsdale - Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri endured a rather trying day amid breezy conditions to card a three-over 74 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open here.

Though the round itself was incomplete, Lahiri who was tied-fourth after the first round, finished his second round at three-over 74, which now puts him at two-under for the week.

The wind apart, the firm greens tested the golfers at the TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course, which is a mere 10 minutes from leader the Korean-American leader, James Hahn's residence.
