Barcelona:

Jeev Milkha Singh carded a disastrous four-over 76 to slid to the tied 32nd spot after the third round of Open de Espana, where golfers mourned the death of Spanish legend Seve Balllesteros.

Jeev managed just 33 per cent fairways and had three bogeys, a double bogey and just one birdie.

Earlier on Friday, Shiv Kapur missed the cut, after completing the second round in 81 and ended at 12-over for 36 holes.

Thomas Aiken holds a two shot lead going into the final round after a third round 72.

The day's play was inevitably overshadowed by the death of Ballesteros, a five-time Major Champion and three-time winner of his national title.

Flags were at half-mast, players wore black ribbons and a minute's silence in mid-afternoon was followed by a round of applause.

Jose Maria Olazabal, another Spanish legend finished a round of 75 and then broke into tears.

Another Spaniard, Pablo Larrazabal, was dressed in black as he continued his bid to put his name on a trophy that Ballesteros last lifted in 1995 - one that made him the only player in European Tour history to record 50 victories.

Aiken doubled his one shot halfway lead by remaining eight-under, but four players are now six under - Larrazabal (73), Dane Anders Hansen (69) and European Tour rookies Scott Jamieson and Romain Wattel from Scotland and France. They both shot 72.
