Thailand Golf Championship: Randhawa moves to Top-10


Jyoti Randhawa, whose last Asian Tour win came in Thailand in 2009, moved into top-10, but was still some distance away from the leaders at the end of the third round of the Thailand Golf Championship today.

Randhawa, three-under through two rounds, shot five-under 67 on the moving day to get to eight-under 208 and tied-ninth place.

SSP Chawrasia added a four-under 68 to his three-under 141 total for 36 holes and is now seven-under 209 in tied-14th place.

Among other Indians, Arjun Atwal and Shiv Kapur carded three-under 69 each in the third round to move to five-under 211 and in tied-22nd place, while Rashid Khan (70) and Gaganjeet Bhullar (72) are at three-under 213 and tied-34th place.

World No. 481 Clement Sordet of France was the very last international player invited to the fifth edition of the USD 1 million event but he could very well be first past the post if he continues with the kind of shot-playing that saw him scorch his way to a 63, and a two-shot lead at 16-under par heading into the final round.

“I was pretty focused today. I guess that was the key to me playing well. I made six birdies and a bogey. It was great playing alongside Bubba (Watson). He’s a very nice person.
