Miami, Mar 12 (UNI) Daniel Chopra could not reproduce his second round show but his one-under 71 in the penultimate round was enough to keep him in the hunt, at tied fourth, in the 5.5 million dollar Honda Classic here.
The Indian-born Swede had a poor front nine in which he bogeyed the third hole and dropped two more shots on the seventh and eighth.
He managed to squeeze in a birdie on the sixth.
In his backward journey, the bogey on the 11th was the only setback as the former Asian Tour regular fired birdies on the 10th, 12th, 16th and 17th to harbour his hopes of a top five finish with one more round to go. Chopra now has a three-day aggregate of seven-under 209.
Arjun Atwal had earlier crashed out of the event, failing to make the cut.
Meanwhile, Englishman Luke Donald's four-under 68 sent him soaring to the top slot at nine-under 207, a place he shares with American Billy Mayfair who had a level-par round.
