Ponte Vedra Beach (USA): Jeev Milkha Singh continued to find the going tough at The Players Championship golf, carding a disappointing four-over 76 in the penultimate round to slip to the tied 65th spot.

The Indian has a three-day total of two-over 218 in the $9.5 million event being played here.

Off to the worst possible start, Jeev stumbled to a bogey quartet before picking up a birdie on the eighth hole to make the turn three-over.

The back-nine was no better as Jeev dropped four more strokes. However, a birdie on the 11th and an eagle on the 16th hole prevented the Indian from dropping too low on the leader-board.

Meanwhile, Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra posted a 72 to move up from his second round tied-22nd place to tied-11th with a total of four-under 212.

At the top, overnight leader Alex Cejka (72) is well-placed to grab the title with a five-stroke lead. The German has a total of 205.

World No. 1 Tiger Woods (70) and South African star Retief Goosen (71) are among the chasing pack of five at the tied second spot. — PTI
