Golfer Gaganjeet Bhullar rode on a flawless back-nine to card a two-under 70 and rise to tied 47th after the third round of the Portugal Open in Estoril.

The Kapurthala-pro has a three-day total of three-under 213.

It was not the best of starts for Bhullar as he stumbled to a bogey on the first hole but back-to-back birdies in the next two had him one-under.

However, a dropped shot on the fifth left Bhullar even-par at the turn.

On his way back, the Indian picked up birdies on the 11th and 18th in a steady performance to round off a reasonably good day.

Dane Thomas Bjorn grabbed a three-stroke lead after a second successive 65 left his overall total at 19-under 197.

Australian Richard Green was second after returning a 64 in the third round.
