Wentworth: Indian golfer SSP
Chowrasia carded a disappointing five-over 76 to slip to the
tied 39th spot after the third round of the BMW PGA Golf
Championship here.

The Kolkata-pro, the lone Indian left in fray after Shiv
Kapur and Jyoti Randhawa missed the cut, has an overall total
of three-over 216.

Chowrasia made an ominous start as he stumbled to a bogey
on the very first hole and dropped another shot on the third
hole. A birdie on the eighth hole raised hopes of a turnaround
but a back-nine slump put paid to any chance of a comeback.

Chowrasia couldn`t strike a single birdie on the back
nine and found bogeys on the 11th, 12th, 14th and 17th to end
a disastrous day.

England`s Chris Wood took the sole lead after a
third-round 67 took his total to eight-under 205. Following
him a couple of strokes behind were Swede Robert Karlsson (62)
and another Englishman Danny Willett (70).
