Young Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma slipped to tied 19th after carding an even-par 72 in the third round of the PGM Vascory Templer Park Championship
Kuala Lumpur: A late slump denied young Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma the chance to position himself in the top-10 as he slipped to tied 19th after carding an even-par 72 in the third round of the PGM Vascory Templer Park Championship.
Shubhankar, who has already finished in in top-10 twice this season, has a three-day total of three-under 210. He needs to come in with a low final round to get closer to top-10.
Shubhankar had birdies on second and third and 13th before he dropped three shots in two holes.
Malaysia’s top amateur Gavin Green raced to a commanding nine-shot lead after firing a five-under 67 in the third round of the PGM Vascory Templer Park Championship on Friday.
The big-hitting Green, who held a two-stroke halfway lead, put one hand on the trophy of the approximately USD 80,000 Asian Development Tour event with his three-day total of 18-under 198.
Thailand’s Kwanchai Tannin, who carded the day’s lowest round of 66, moved into second place behind the 20-year-old Malaysian while local trio of Airil Rizman, Khor Kheng Hwai and Shaaban Hussin shared third place on 208 after rounds of 69, 73 and 75 respectively at the Templer Park Country Club.
The top five players on the final ADT Order of Merit will earn playing rights for the 2015 Asian Tour season.
