Bangladesh's Siddikur Rahman maintains his lead in SAIL Open, Asian Tour
The third round of the SAIL Open being played at Arnold Palmer designed, Delhi Golf course concluded with the man-in-form Siddikur Rehman emerging on the top of the leader board.
There were a few players who slipped down the leader board and a few who kept their momentum on the third day.
There was a three-way tie on the top of the leader board as day three commenced. Akinori Tani of Japan, Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand and Siddikur were sharing the lead. It was however, the Brunei Open champion, Siddikur who held his nerves and posted on top of the score board.
Siddikur from Bangladesh is enjoying a prime form: he carded a superb round of five-under par, 67 for the third round. The 28-year-old looked in fine touch with his putter which favoured him throughout the day. He had an eagle, five birdies and two bogeys on his score card. The tough par-4, 9th and the tricky par-3, 12th really troubled him as he made bogeys on both the holes.
The man from Bangladesh finished the day with a birdie on the last hole. He has a three round aggregate score of fourteen-under par, 202 and leads the Championship by two strokes. The youngster recently won a tournament on Bangladesh Masters on his home soil and is now looking confident of winning his second trophy playing on the Asian Tour.
Joint overnight leader Aphibarnrat slipped to the second spot. He is tied with India’s Ajeetesh Sandhu. They have a score of twelve-under par, 204 after three rounds and trail the leader by a margin of two shots. Sandhu played well for the day and posted a score of four-under par, 68. His card showed six birdies and two bogeys.
Manav Jani of the host club and the overnight leader Tani share the fourth position. They have a score of eleven-under par, 205 and have a deficit of three shots over the leader. Jani carded a fantastic round of eight-under par, 64; he had eight birdies marked on his score card and was bogey free for the round. Manav was more than satisfied with his putting and is confident of curbing the challenge on the final day to lift his first Asian Tour title.
As for the local hero, Gaganjeet Bhullar, he was not looking in great form with his iron shots and putter. Bhullar managed a rather moderate round of even-par, 72 and is tied at the sixth position.
The final round of the Championship will conclude today and Siddikur is expected to continue his brilliance to win his second Asian Tour trophy.
