Crans Montana, Switzerland: India’s S.S.P. Chowrasia described his third round as an easy one after he posted a three-under-par 67 to take a share of 32nd place at the Omega European Masters on Saturday.
Play was suspended for an hour and 40 minutes due to thick fog in the afternoon but when it resumed, Chowrasia was delighted to be greeted by the good weather conditions at the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club.
“It was really very easy out there today as it was so tough the last two days,” said Chowrasia.
The two-time Asian Tour winner had to battle through testing weather conditions over the opening two rounds and he only managed to make it to the weekend rounds right on the cutline.
Chowrasia, however took advantage of the benign conditions to mark his card with five birdies and two bogeys to stay eight shots back of Scottish leader Richie Ramsay with his three-day total of three-under-par 209.
“Today’s weather was excellent and I really enjoyed myself out there. It’s expected to get better tomorrow and who knows I may be in for a chance,” said Chowrasia.
Meanwhile compatriot Jyoti Randhawa, who is India’s other representative at the €2.1million showpiece, hopes that he can shake off his fatigue and close his campaign at the Omega European Masters with a commendable result.
The eight-time Asian Tour winner signed for a 71 to be left with an uphill task of winning his first title in Europe.
“I was struggling today and I was not really focused as I was tired,” said Randhawa.
“I haven’t played for two months and my body is stiff. I really need to get back into the momentum,” added Randhawa, who was Asia’s number one in 2002.
