The Indian birdied third and fifth and raised hopes of a good day as he moved up. A bogey on the ninth was a step backward but after five pars, he finished with two birdies and two bogeys in the last four holes. S. S. P. Chawrasia, Ajeetesh Sandhu and Gaganjeet Bhullar had missed the cut.

England’s Eddie Pepperell’s bid to win the British Masters for a second time got a boost as he carried a one-stroke lead into the final round.
