Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri shrugged off the disappointment of the previous week, as he geared up to tee off at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta here on Thursday.
The PGA Tour makes its first stop on the mainland after two weeks in Hawaii, where Justin Thomas made a sweep of both events.
At the CareerBuilder Challenge, Jason Dufner is the defending champion.
Lahiri will play with Luke List and two other amateurs at the Nicklaus Course and they will start from the tenth tee.
The first three rounds will feature pros with the amateurs.
Last year at the same event, Lahiri opened his 2016 season and finished Tied-28th.
A total of 156 players will tee up and the cut will be applied after 54 holes to top 70 and ties, and the purse this week is $ 6 million.
