Lahiri ended with a total of 11-over 299 to finish tied 42nd and better his previous best of T-49 last year. Lahiri, starting the day at five-over and in tied-38th place, courted disaster on the third with a triple bogey and had further bogeys on fourth and seventh.
But he played his last 11 holes superbly with two birdies and rest of them pars to finish with 75.
"The two triples (one each on first and last days) and not being able to score off the Par-fives cost me something like 10 shots and that is the difference being in Top-10 or somewhere in the 40s. That should explain it all. I played well in patches and that was not enough," Lahiri said.
Lahiri is planning to take two weeks off and practice with his coach, Vijay Divecha, who arrived over the weekend.
"I want to a few chores around the house, as we settle into a new place in Florida, which will be my base for next few months," said Lahiri.
"Also I need to work on my game and will get back to tournaments in two weeks time at New Orleans," he added.
Asian Tour's Kiradech Aphibarnrat added a two-under 70 in the final round of the Masters to finish Tied 15th, his best ever result in a Major event.
