Mar 07, 2020: SSP Chawrasia remained within striking distance, producing a third straight round in the 60s to end the day in T10, five strokes behind the leader.

On Saturday, Chawrasia shot five birdies in a 3-under 68, moving to 9-under through 54 holes. The 41-year-old from Kolkata has shot 14 birdies and five bogeys in the three rounds at Doha.

Jorge Campillo carded a third round 67 to take a one shot lead into the final day of the 2020 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

The Spaniard started the day in a share of the lead and picked up five shots in six holes around the turn to move three ahead and into a commanding position at Education City Golf Club.

But a pair of bogeys on the back nine in the increasing wind meant he came home in level par for a 14 under total, just one clear of Scot David Drysdale and Dane Jeff Winther.

Another Dane in Benjamin Poke was then at 12 under, a shot clear of Swede Alexander Björk and Spaniard Pablo Larrazábal.

Drysdale is playing his 498th European Tour event this week as he looks for a maiden victory, while a win for Winther would come at the 97th attempt as he establishes himself fully on the European Tour after three successful trips to the Qualifying School.

Finn Kalle Samooja and England’s Jack Senior were at ten under, a shot clear of two more Englishmen in Marcus Armitage and Andy Sullivan, India’s S.S.P. Chawrasia, Belgian Thomas Detry and Scotland’s Scott Jamieson.
