Chowrasia 77th after wobbly 3rd round in France

Paris:

SSP Chowrasia's game came unstuck when it really mattered and the Kolkata pro stuttered to six-over 77 in his penultimate round to slip to the 77th place in the Open de France Alstom golf tournament here.

Lone Indian in the fray after compatriots Jeev Milkha Singh and Jyoti Randhawa failed to make the cut, Chowrasia turned in his worst card of the week so far to total an unflattering 219 that dashed his hopes of a top finish in the elite European Tour event.

Apart from the birdies on the fifth, sixth and 13th holes, nothing really went right for the diminutive Indian, who dropped bogeys on the fourth and three on the trot from the 16th hole.

It was, however, in the turbulent front nine that the Indian had completely lost the plot.

Chowrasia tripled bogeyed the par-five third hole and as if it was not enough, double bogeyed the seventh and could not recover from the setbacks.

Argentine Rafa Echenique carded 70 to stay the stop at 202 with German Martin Keymar (69) breathing down his neck from one shot behind.
