Shinkwin joins Suri in Indian Open lead

Callum Shinkwin holds a share of the lead in the Indian Open after Julian Suri made a mess of the 18th hole in his third round on Saturday.

Suri started moving day with a two-shot advantage and looked set to stay out on his own heading into the final round at DLF Golf and Country Club.

The American will instead tee off on Sunday level with Shinkwin on 11 under after a double-bogey seven at the last, having put his tee shot into the hazard.

Suri signed for a one-under 71 to drop back alongside Shinkwin, who is scenting his first European Tour title after carding a four-under 68.

The Englishman, who was given an invite to play in New Delhi after finishing 119th in the Race to Dubai last season, made five birdies and dropped just the one shot at 14.

Masahiro Kawamura is two shots back from the leading duo, while Stephen Gallacher is a further stroke back on eight under after shooting an impressive 67.
