Orlando: On a day when only four players managed to break par, Jeev Milkha Singh found the going tough and stuttered to a four-over 74 in the third round to slip to tied 24th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational golf tournament here.
Jeev’s total stood at three-over 213 after yet another tough and windy day at the $5.8 million event. Off to a disastrous start with a double bogey on the par-four first hole, Jeev managed just one birdie in his front nine, on the third, before dropping strokes on the fourth and seventh to make the turn three-over. The back-nine was no better as he dropped three bogeys against a couple of birdies to end the day over-par.
American Sean O’Hair took a five stroke lead after a one-over 71 left him seven-under 203 overall. O’Hair was followed by Tiger Woods (71) at the second spot, while the third place was shared by Americans Zach Johnson (68) and Jason Gore (74) and Japan’s Ryuji Imada (73), who totalled one-under 209. — PTI
