Hong Kong: Indian golfers Samarth Dwivedi and Aman Raj carded identical three-under 73s in windy conditions resembling a gale to be tied 39th and tied 47th after the third round of the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championships here on Saturday.

That may well also end up being their final position as the forecast for the final day is grim weather. The organsiers announced that while they will try to complete the final round, but they also added that in case play is not completed on Sunday, the results may be declared after 54 holes.

Dwivedi, who has played a lot around Asia and even lived in Thailand and Singapore, said, "I have played in windy conditions but this was probably the toughest. It was almost impossible to keep control."

Aman added, "I managed the conditions, which were tough, will the last two holes, where I had a bogey and double bogey and that messed up my round."

Meanwhile, China's Jin Cheng, playing his fourth Asia-Pacific Amateur Championships, took sole lead at 11-under and one clear of the Australian duo Ryan Ruffels (67) and Cameron Davis (67).
