Indian star golfer Anirban Lahiri didn't start the new year on a very high note, as he failed to achieve a great result in the first of the four men's major golf championships. However, the Asian Tour Golfer of the year 2015 did reach a personal best at the Augusta Masters 2016.

Lahiri, 28, scored a total of 11-over 299 to finish tied 42nd in the Masters this year and in the process, also bettered his previous best of T-49 achieved last year. England's Danny Willett won the Augusta Masters this year after an impressive display on the final day saw him reach atop the leaderboard chart, leaving behind Lee Westwood and Jordan Spieth.

Lahiri is definitely keen on emulating the Englishman's feat of winning the first Golf Major of his career and he has mentioned that he will leave no stones unturned to try and look for better results in the other three major golfing championships of the year -- the US Open, the British Open and the US PGA Championship.

"I want to [do] a few chores around the house, as we settle into a new place in Florida, which will be my base for next few months," Lahiri was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India. "Also I need to work on my game and will get back to tournaments in two weeks' time at New Orleans."

Lahiri moved down a position to be ranked 52 in the world at the moment.
