Greater Noida: Gaganjeet Bhullar was in the hunt for a top-five finish but an Indian winner looks unlikely at the Avantha Masters where South African debutant Thomas Aiken became an unlikely sole leader with a stunning card of 10-under 62 in the third and penultimate round of the USD 2.3 million golf event on Saturday.
Bhullar's five-under 67 was the best performance by an Indian today and his five birdies -- two on the front and three on the back-nine -- fetched him a share of the eighth position with a three-day total of 12-under 204.
"It was much better than previous two days. I have been hitting the ball consistently well, and even finding a lot of greens. I had a lot of greens in regulation. It was 17 yesterday and again 17 today. I missed only one green in regulation today. But the putts have not fallen," Bhullar said of his game so far.
