Jeev Milkha Singh kept himself in contention at the British Masters with yet another solid show, carding a three-under 69 in the weather-interrupted penultimate round.
The seasoned Indian pro, who completed his final two holes on Sunday after being left stranded at the 16th due to darkness, has a total of seven-under 209 and shares the third spot with Spaniard Gonzalo Fdez-Castano (68).
Jeev is just three strokes off the pace of leaders New Zealand's Michael Campbell (65) and English Ryder Cup star Lee Westwood (68).
In contrast, it was a horrendous day for the other Indian in fray, Shiv Kapur, who returned a six-over 78 to slide to the tied 56th spot.
