An erratic four-over 76 in the third round saw Indian golfer Shiv Kapur slip to the tied 61st spot in the Austrian Open here.

Kapur’s overall total stood at three-over 218 after the penultimate round. Kapur started off poorly by dropping a double bogey on the very first hole. He followed it up with a couple of birdies and an equal number of bogeys in the front nine to make the turn two-over.

The back-nine started in similar fashion as he stumbled to a double bogey on the 10th hole. A bogey on the 11th and a birdie on the 12th completed the topsy-turvy day for Kapur, who was tied 28th to start with after a blemish-free six-under 66 in the second round.

Englishmen David Lynn (64) and Danny Willett (65) shared the lead with totals of 13-under 203. Thaworn declared winner in Taiwan

Taipei: Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant was declared the winner of the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship after it was reduced to 54 holes due to Typhoon Fanapi. With the storm packing winds of up to 162 kilometres (100 miles) per hour, the final round at the Linkou International Golf Club in Taipei was unplayable and the event was shortened.
