Barring these two unlikely events, Digvijay, who shot a six under 66 in the third round, for a six stroke lead going into the last day, will be celebrating victory not long after noon on Friday.
Trailing Mukesh Kumar by a stroke after two rounds, Digvijay played the best he's done in this city today even as Mukesh played his worst in three days. In fact, following his third round 74, Mukesh has slipped to third place, behind Digvijay and Shamim Khan (71).
Starting in style, Digvijay had birdies on the first, third and fourth holes. He bogeyed the fifth but made up for that with birdies on the sixth and seventh. On the way in, he shot birdies on the 11th and 15th although his best putt was for par (a 15- footer) on the 12th.
Among amateurs, both Sandeep Syal and L.Selvadurai shot rounds of 73 but the former continues to lead the tournament.
Leading pro scores: 203 Digvijay Singh; 209 Shamim Khan; 210 Mukesh Kumar; 211 Bhoop Singh; Mohish Bindra 212; Uttam Singh Mundy 212; Rafiq Ali 212; Md Islam 212; SSP Chowrasia 213; Shiv Prakash 213.
Amateurs: Sandeep Syal 217; L. Selvadurai 221; B.Gurunath 224.
