Golf round-up: Aditi placed 12th, Lahiri slips to T-52

Aditi shot a bogey-free four-under 67 to get to nine-under 133 and was positioned tied 12th. Lahiri sunk in two birdies in the third round but hit as many bogeys to slip to tied 52nd.

Indian golfer Aditi Ashok birdied three of the four Par-5s in the second round to continue on her strong performance at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship here.

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri sunk in two birdies in the third round but hit as many bogeys to slip to tied 52nd, down 19 places from his overnight position, at the low-scoring Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Aditi, who is coming out of a rather modest showing in 2019, shot a bogey-free four-under 67 to get to nine-under 133 and was positioned tied 12th at the halfway stage of the tournament. She had a bogey free 66 on the first day.

Aditi trailed the twin leaders, Sung Hyun Park and Carlota Ciganda by four shots. Sung Hyun Park (66-63) birdied the final two holes for an eight-under 63 and a share of lead with Ciganda (63-66). They are both at 13-under 129 at the Pinnacle Country Club.

Lahiri, who turned 32 on Saturday, had a fine second round with the putter but missed at least two inside six feet and a few more in the 10-12 foot range at the Detroit Golf Club course.

In the third round, Lahiri birdied third, bogeyed fourth, birdied 14th and bogeyed 16th and is now seven-under 209. Lahiri hit nine of the 14 fairways and 14 of the 18 greens in regulation.
