Dublin (Ohio), June 3: Ace Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri failed to repeat his sixth place finish at the Colonial last week as he ended joint 44th after the first round of the Memorial Golf Championship, held at the Muirfield Village here.

Lahiri, who started on the 10th, shot two-under par round of 70 to share the spot with Jordan Spieth. The Indian hit four birdies and two bogeys, on the ninth and 18th but missed a bunch of short birdie putts on Thursday.

The 28-year-old birdied 12th, 14th, fifth and seventh and dropped bogeys on 18th and ninth. He missed three putts inside eight and a half feet and two of them were on par-fives.

After missing short putts for birdies on the par-fives on the back stretch he birdied both par-fives on front stretch.
