Randhawa slips, Kapur slumps to bottom at British masters
Birmingham, May 14 ((UNI) Jyoti Randhawa's second successive even-par round saw him slipping two places down to a tied 27th while compatriot Shiv Kapur played his worst round of golf in recent past and carded a nightmarish eight-over 80 to plummet to the lowest place in the third round of the British Masters here.
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 yesterday's horrendous round, Shiv aggregates eight over 224 and is at 70th postion.
Jyoti in fact took the halfway turn at two-under, thanks to birdies in the sixth and eighth, but forfeited the advantage on his way back, dropping a shot each in the 14th and 18th. The highest ranked India finished with tied 27th after a three-day total of two-under 214.
On contrary, it was a horror show by Shiv Kapur at the par-72 The De Vere Belfry Golf Course.
His birdied on second was the only silverlining and the immensely talented youngster from India was largely dealing in bogeys and, even worse, doubles bogeys.
A 10th hole starter, 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 to hit a bogey and another double bogey on the next two holes.
