Reno: An eventful front nine left Jeev
Milkha Singh with a card of three-over 75 and the seasoned
Indian slipped 25 rungs to tied 42nd after the penultimate
round of the Reno-Tahoe Open golf tournament here.

The Chandigarh pro slotted just one birdie against a
couple of bogeys and a double bogey to take his total to
even-par 216 in three days.

Jeev was off to a steady start but soon went one-over
after dropping a stroke on the third hole.

He quickly made amends with his only birdie of the day on
the fourth hole but let it slip with a double bogey on the
seventh and a bogey on the ninth.

The back-nine was a subdued affair as Jeev made pars on
all the nine holes.

At the top, American Scott McCarron (67) grabbed the sole
lead with a total of 10-under 206, followed a stroke adrift by
his compatriots John Mallinger (71) and Robert Garrigus (73).
