Avantha Masters: Gaganjeet Bhullar rises but South African Aiken leads after round 3

Also in contention for a good finish at the richest golf event in India is the seasoned Jeev Milkha Singh. The Chandigarh-pro, who signed off tied 43rd last year, looks good enough to better that performance after a three-under 69, comprising six birdies and three bogeys, left him tied 17th with a total of 10-under 206.

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.
