Heartbreak for Anirban Lahiri: Nightmarish quadruple bogey costs Indian golfer PGA Tour title in Kuala Lumpur
The only consolation for Lahiri was a good start to the 2016-17 season, which also produced his career-best finish at tied 3rd, bettering his tied 5th at 2015 PGA Championships.
Chawrasia dropped three bogeys, a double bogey against five birdies on the second day to aggregate 142, while Lahiri totalled 147 at the half-way stage after dropping five bogeys and three birdies.
Lahiri has been a revelation for Indian golf in the last couple of years.
Last year the 29-year-old was tied-fifth for the best ever finish by an Indian at any Major.
Stenson, Johnson and Willett will start from the first tee Thursday at 1:45 p.m. and the 10th tee at 8:30 a.m. Friday.
Woods now has gone eight full years since winning his 14th major championship at the 2008 U.S. Open.
Chawrasia scored a five-over 149 in the European Tour event in Inverness, UK to finish 101.
With just three weeks left for the Rio Games to begin, Jordan Spieth became the latest golfer to withdraw from the Olympics.
Mickelson did very little wrong, with four birdies, an eagle and not a single dropped shot, but his 65 was not enough as he was left to settle for second place at 17-under.
Stenson recovered from dropping a shot at the par-four first by recording five birdies before the turn and also recording a birdie at the 10th.
Lahiri will head to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Games where he will be amongst 16 Asian golfers who have qualified for the men's competition.
Anirban Lahiri hopes that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will keep golf in the programme beyond 2020.
Masters champion Danny Willett and Jordan Spieth managed only even par 71 each.
On Tuesday morning McIlroy played into one of the five greenside bunkers and had a nightmare getting out.
The PGA Championship in Baltusrol two weeks later and the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in mid-August follow the Open.
Retirement is still far away, I only hope that I will decide it and not my body.
