Chandigarh, November 11
Chandigarh’s Karandeep Kochhar raised hopes of a second title — his first since turning professional — when he shot a bogey-free 5-under 67 to extend his lead to four strokes after Round 3 of the TATA Steel PGTI Players Championship at the Chandigarh Golf Club. Kochhar moved to 15-under, extending his overnight lead by two shots. “I wasn’t too comfortable with my hitting today but my chipping and putting saved the day for me,” said Kochhar.
Chandigarh’s Akshay Sharma, last week’s winner, shot a 68 to share second position with Gurugram’s Veer Ahlawat (68) and Mysuru’s Yashas Chandra (69) at 11-under. — TNS
