Indians in contention at Volvo Masters Asia

Shah Alam, Malaysia: South African Craig Kamps fired an eagle to grab a one-stroke lead today in the season-ending Volvo Masters Asia at the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club. Kamps, whose best performance on the Asian Tour this year was eighth at last week's Hong Kong Open, finished with a sizzling six-under 66, just ahead of India's Digvijay Singh. Kamps, 37, landed the eagle on the 480-metre 12th hole with the help of a driver, three-wood and a sensational 15-foot putt. India's Arjun Atwal, ranked number-three in Asia, shared third position with eight others on four-under 68. The current Asian Order of Merit leader, Jyoti Randhawa, birdied the last hole for a three-under 69, remaining well in contention. Both Randhawa and Atwal are seeking good results to finish the season as the Asian number one. Thai ace Thongchai Jaidee who is also in the race for the best Asian golfer title, overcame a double-bogey on the 15th to end with a one-under 71. Jaidee is aiming to be the first player in the eight-year history of the Asian PGA to complete back-to-back Order of Merit titles. (AP)
