Chowrasia, Shiv lag; Goosen in the lead


Retief Goosen

Shiv was nine-under 207 after hitting four birdies against a couple of bogeys in the third round.

Chowrasia, meanwhile, totalled seven-under 209.

Shiv parred the first five holes before notching up his first birdie on the sixth.

A bogey followed on the very next hole but Shiv managed to break par in the front nine by gaining a shot on the ninth hole.

His back nine also comprised a couple of birdies -- on the 10th and 16th -- and a bogey.

The Kolkata-pro picked up three birdies against an equal number of bogeys for a second successive card of 70.

At the top, South African Retief Goosen continued to lead carding a 67 in the third round to take his total to 17-under 199.

A couple of strokes behind the South African was local favourite Bernhard Langer, who returned a 65.
