Lahiri, who had a triple bogey on the second hole and a bogey on the third started the recovery soon after with an eagle on the fourth.
Lahiri, who has been battling indifferent form in the last two years, enjoyed his best result on the PGA Tour in nearly 18 months when he signed off tied 36th at Safeway Open two weeks ago.
