Chawrasia hits the front in India


SSP Chawrasia has a two shot lead going into the final day of the Hero Indian Open following his flawless round on Saturday.

The Indian carded a four under 67 at the Delhi Golf Club to leave him on 14 under for the event, a couple strokes ahead of overnight leader Terry Pilkadaris.

Chawrasia, who won the 2008 event on the same course, holed a ten foot putt for birdie on the opening hole then strung together three more gains on the sixth, seventh and eighth.

The round included an incredible par save from off the green at the par three 12th, which kept him in the lead.

Menawhile, Pilkadaris disappointed with a one over 73 to slip to 12 under and lose the lead.

Further down the leaderboard, defending champion Anirban Lahiri carded sizzling five under 67 to shoot up to T3 with local Rahsid Khan on ten under, while a host of players are locked on nine under.
