Glasgow: A late slump marred Jeev Milkha Singh’s card as he turned in a three-over 74 to slip 15 places to tied 58th after the third round of the Barclays Scottish Open here.

Jeev has a three-day total of four-over 217 after picking up two birdies against five bogeys in the third round.

The seasoned Chandigarh-pro was off to a steady start by striking a birdie on the second hole but made the turn even-par after dropping a stroke on the seventh hole.

The back-nine was also going even-par after he found one birdie against a bogey but things went haywire soon as he stumbled to back-to-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th.

He dropped another stroke on the 18th to round off what proved to be a disappointing day in the end.

Jeev is the lone Indian left in fray after Jyoti Randhawa, Shiv Kapur and SSP Chowarasia missed the cut.

At the top, Edoardo Molinari (63) led with a total of 15-under 198. Darren Clarke (67) was a stroke adrift at the second spot.
