Randhawa rises to tied 4th after Rd 3 of France tourney

Paris: Indian golfer Jyoti Randhawa put himself in contention for a top-five finish after rising one rung to tied fourth with a topsy-turvy one-under 70 in the penultimate round of the Alstom Open de France.

Randhawa`s three-day total stands at seven-under 206.

The Delhi pro struck three birdies and an eagle -- on the par-five third hole -- against four bogeys.

Among other Indians in fray, seasoned pro Jeev Milkha Singh also regained some form and carded a three-under 68 to total two-under 211 and shoot up 32 places to tied 26th.

Jeev slotted in four birdies against just a lone bogey for a reasonably good day on the course.

But the slide continued for Shiv Kapur. The Delhi-pro returned a four-over 75 in the third round to be tied 72nd with a total of five-over 218.

Randhawa managed three birdies against two bogeys and an equal number of double bogeys.

At the top, German Martin Kaymer (71) took the top spot with a total of nine-under 204. Following him a stroke behind was England`s Steve Webster, who managed a 70 in the third round.
