Zandvoort, Holland:

The final hole bogey came as a dampener but Shiv Kapur's one-under 69 was enough for a share of the 46th place after the penultimate round of the KLM Open golf tournament.

After rounds of 71, 68 and 69, the Delhi pro -- with a 54-hole total of two-under 208 -- joined seven others at the 46th spot.

It was quite a rollercoaster round for the youngster who began and finished his front nine in the same fashion, dropping a stroke.

In between, he squeezed in a couple of birdies besides a bogey to take the turn at one-over.

Shiv had a spectacular back nine, which included bogeys on the 11th, 15th and 18th. To offset the setbacks, he reeled off birdies on the 13th, 16th and 17th and fired an eagle on the par-five 12th to sign off with his second successive sub-par card.

Sweden's Peter Hedblom (196) fired a six-under 64 for the lead with the lowest 54-hole total of the European Tour this season with Peter Lawrie (65) trailing him by two strokes.
