Muniyappa, who has not won an Asian Tour event, bogeyed the par-5 14th hole but bounced back with four birdies.

"My ball-striking has been good until now, but I missed a few putts on the back nine," the Indian golfer said.

"I was cruising along nicely, but then it all went wrong on the back nine," the Australian said. "It was really just bad luck."
