West Virginia: A late slump marred
Arjun Atwal`s card as he turned in a three-under 67 for a
share of the 47th spot, while Jeev Milkha Singh dropped to
tied 61st with two-under 68 in the third round of the
Greenbrier Classic golf tournament here.

Atwal totals seven-under 203 after three rounds, while
Jeev stood a stroke behind his Orlando-based compatriot in the
overall standings.

It was a perfect start to the proceedings for Atwal as he
banged in a hat-trick of birdies from second to fourth before
gaining another stroke on the seventh to make the turn
four-under.

The back-nine was also turning out to be fine with
back-to-back birdies on the 10th and 11th before Atwal
stumbled to a double bogey on the 13th hole.

After this, another bogey on the 18th denied Atwal a
chance to shoot up the leaderboard.

Jeev, on the other hand, struck four birdies -- two in
each nine -- against a couple of bogeys to total six-under
overall.

Jeff Overton (66) continued to lead the pack by three
strokes with a total of 18-under 192. Overton`s compatriot D A
Points (61) occupied the second spot.
