Following his Tied 46th place at the AT&T Byron Nelson golf, Lahiri stayed at the 56th place, which ensured that he stayed on in Top-60 of the World Golf Rankings. The US Open is the only Major where Lahiri has not made the cut so far.

This will be the eighth successive Major for Lahiri, who is also confirmed for the British Open Championships and the PGA Championships later this year.
After his maiden appearance at a Major in Open Championships in 2012, Lahiri has played seven Majors in a row dating back to the Open in 2014. He has the best streak of Major appearances by an Indian.

The next best is five by Jeev Milkha Singh, who played all four Majors in 2007 and then the Masters in 2008.

On the PGA Tour, Lahiri has played 12 events and missed the cut only three times and was runner-up at the Hero Indian Open in March, an event co-sanctioned by Asian and European Tours.

Anirban is also set to tee-up at the Rio Olympics later this year, alongside compatriot, SSP Chawrasia. Also qualifying for the US Open from the Asian Tour are Korea's KT Kim and Thai duo Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Thongchai Jaidee.
