ST ANDREWS: Anirban Lahiri knows he will return as a more accomplish­ed player after he signed off at the world’s oldest Major with an even-par 72 on Monday. The current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader, who was playing at the Old Course in St Andrews for the first time this week, believes it was his inexperien­ce that cost him dearly after he closed with a four-day total of six-under 282. “I can’t say I played well because I dropped too many shots over the last two days. When you hit into these traps and get bitten, you realise how far you have to hit to stay away from them. But it has been a great learning experience and you learn from them especially when you play on the course for the first time,” said Lahiri.
