India’s Anirban Lahiri carded a three-under 68 to be placed tied 27th on the third day of the BMW Championships, the third leg of the FedExCup Play-offs at Conway Farms, PTI reported.
Lahiri, whose putting has let him down a fair bit over last few tournaments, missed at least three putts inside eight feet.
Yet his first round 67 and third round 68 have enabled him to get to seven-under 206 and improve to tied 27th place.
In the third round birdies on first, third, seventh and eighth against a bogey on fourth saw him turn in three-under.
On the back nine, there was one bogey on 12th and rest were pars till a closing birdie on 18th, where he had dropped shots on first and second days.
A good finish in the final round will set up Lahiri well for the Presidents’ Cup, which follows the Tour Championships next week.
Aditi misses cut at Evian Championships
Indian golfer Aditi Ashok carded a disappointing six-over 77 to crash out of the weather-hit Evian Championships, the fifth and final Major for women. Aditi had an extremely rough outing to register her first one-over 72.
In the second round, Aditi had four bogeys and a double in conditions that have been tough through the week and the event reduced to 54 holes.
