Chowrasia finishes tied 39th

SSP Chowrasia rounded off the week with one-under 70 to finish tied 39th at the ISPA Handa Wales Open here on Sunday.

Chowrasia, the lone Indian out of the three who started out the week, had shot 75 in the third and that cost him a better finish at The Celtic Manor Resort.

Shiv Kapur and Jeev Milkha Singh had earlier missed the cut. Chowrasia birdied three times, all three times on back nine on 11th, 15th and 18th and his bogeys came on fourth and 16th.

Meanwhile, at Fort Wayne in the United States, Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra, already assured of a PGA card for 2014, shot an even par 72 on the third round to lie tied 64th in the Hotel Fitness Championship.

Chopra’s card included an incredible six birdies, but he also gave away four bogeys and a double bogey in the third round to aggregate three-under 213 after three days in a tournament that has been low-scoring.

Patrick Cantlay opened a three-stroke lead a week after the former UCLA star missed a chance to wrap up a PGA TOUR card.
