March 30, 2019: Julian Suri and Callum Shinkwin will share a two shot lead heading into the final round of the Hero Indian Open after a dramatic finish to day three at DLF Golf and Country Club.

Shinkwin, who is chasing a maiden European Tour victory, spent most of round three behind overnight leader Suri and when the Englishman tapped in for a 68 and an 11 under par total, he was still two shots back from his American rival.

“I think a couple of the mistakes I made today where after long waits on the tee box and that was quite a long wait on 18. No excuses, totally my fault and I need to compose myself better and I think that is a bit of a learning curve for me after being out of tournament golf for a while now.


“You have to be on your game at all times. Any slip up or anything can be pretty penal. I am feeling good with my overall game despite 18 there, so the game feels good”, said Suri.

But Suri put his tee shot on the last into a hazard and found terrible lies with both his third and fifth shots to record a double bogey seven and fall back into a share of the lead.

Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura recovered from a triple bogey on the eighth to come home in 31 and sit at nine under, a shot clear of Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher who signed for a 67.

Swede Robert Karlsson was then at seven under, with ten players within five shots of the lead at an event that had looked for a long time to be a two horse race.
