Lahiri becomes only the second Indian after Jeev Milkha Singh to tee up at the DP World Tour Championships. Jeev played it in 2009 and 2012, and had a best finish of T-13 in 2012. Lahiri, who entered World's Top-50 with his twin wins in Malaysia and Hero Indian Open, has managed to hold his own.
     
"It's obviously been a great year for me. Any year that you win is a good year. Any year that you win twice is a great year. When you can do that in your rookie year, that's obviously fantastic, so I'm really happy with that. And it would be great to finish on a high note."
     
Lahiri looking fresh and re-charged after a week's rest is keen on finishing the season on a high note, just as he had begun it at the start of the year. The 28-year-old Lahiri criss-crossed the globe as he put together a memorable year that saw him win twice on European Tour, register a Top-5 finish at the PGA Championships, wrap up his 2016 PGA Tour card and also become the first Indian to play at the President's Cup.
     
He said, "It's obviously been a great year for me. Any year that you win is a good year. Any year that you win twice is a great year. When you can do that in your rookie year, that's obviously fantastic, so I'm really happy with that. And it would be great to finish on a high note."
     
He added, "Yes it is going to be another new course. The number could soon become a book. On a more serious note, I like the course. It suits my eye and I want to round off the season on a solid note. As of now my other engagement this season is the Hero World Challenge in Bahamas, which also I am looking forward, to."
