Randhawa hits 72 to rise to tied 15th

 Jyoti Randhawa led the challenge as only three of the nine Indians, who started the week, survived the cut in the Ballantine’s Championship here on Saturday.

As the second round ended in the morning, most of the Indians fell by the wayside and Randhawa, SSP Chowrasia and Shiv Kapur were the only ones to make the last two rounds.

Randhawa added a third round 72, after 72 and 69 in the first two rounds, to reach three-under 213 and was tied 15th, while Chowrasia (71, 70, 73) was at two-under 214 in tied 25th and Shiv Kapur (71, 71, 74) was even-par 216 and tied 44th.
At the top, Sweden’s Alexander Noren overcame tough conditions to take the third round lead with a deserving 69.

Noren battled the winds that swept through the Blackstone Golf Club all day to post a three-day total of nine-under 207 for a one-shot lead over Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal (68) and Scotland’s Peter Whiteford (69) who were tied for second place after they returned with 68 and 69 respectively.

Atwal makes cut

Arjun Atwal overcame a mid-round blip to card a second-round 73 and make the cut at the South Georgia Classic on Web.com Tour in Valdosta, Georgia. Atwal is now even-par 144 for two rounds and was tied 49th after making the cut on the line.
Hudson Swafford fired a five-under 67 and grabbed the 36-hole lead at 136.
