Incheon, Sep 16 (PTI) Rahil Gangjee (72) and Gaganjeet Bhullar (74) dropped marginally from where they were overnight at the end of the third round of the Shinhan Donghae Open here today.
Gangjee, now even par 213 after three rounds, is tied- 29th as against tied-27 overnight, while Bhullar at five-over is tied-58th, three places down from overnight tied-55th on a windy day.
Gangjee, one-under through first eight holes parred all except one of the remaining holes. But that was double bogey on Par-3 12th and it pushed him back a lot.
Bhullar also had a double bogey on Par-3 12th but he had two other bogeys and his lone birdie came on 18th.
Malaysia’s Gavin Green grinded out a third round one- under-par 70 to take a slender shot lead over the chasing pack.
The Malaysian, who is chasing his Asian Tour breakthrough win this week, traded five birdies against four bogeys to compile a three-day total of eight-under-par 205 at the Bear’s Best Cheongna Golf Club.
Green started off promisingly with a birdie on the par- five second. He dropped two shots on four and five but recovered quickly with another pair of birdies on holes six and seven.
He then mixed his card with two birdies and two bogeys in his inward nine for a 70 and sole possession of the lead at the KRW1.2 billion (approximately USD 1.06 million) event, co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the Korean PGA.
Asian Tour Qualifying School graduate Jarin Todd of the United States rued a costly double-bogey at the last which caused him to slip to a share of second place with Korea’s Hyungseok Seo, Giwhan Kim and Seungtaek Lee.
