Jyoti slips, Shiv Kapur slumps in British Masters
Birmingham, May 13 (UNI) Jyoti Randhawa returned yet another even-par card to slip to tied 27th while his compatriot Shiv Kapur had nightmarish outing as he carded eight under 80, the day's worst show, to slump to the bottom of the basket after the penultimate round at the British Masters here today.
Randhawa aggregates two under 214 and is 11 shots off the leader Briton Paul Casey, who returned two under 70 card to have a two stroke advantage over Michael Campbell of New Zealand.
After today's horrendous round, Shiv aggregates eight over 224 and is at 70th postion.
Watchful in the beginning, Jyoti soon got into the groove and hit a couple of birdies on the sixth and eigth holes.
On his way back, he dropped a shot on the 14th and undid all the hardwork of the day with another boogey on the last hole.
If the outing was disappointing for Jyoti, it proved disastrous for compatriot Shiv Kapur and save the birdie on the second hole, the Asian Tour Rookie of 2005 was busy hitting bogeys and even worse, double bogeys.
Starting on the 10th hole, Shiv had a bad omen when he dropped a double bogey on the 12th. He followed it with a bogey on the next and went on to drop yet another shot on the 17th in his back nine.
No sooner than he made the turn, he dropped one more shot on the first hole before hitting his sole bridie of the day. He went on hit a bogey and another double bogey on the next two holes.
