MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — Miguel Tabuena fired a bogey-free six-under 65 to pull within three strokes of Miguel Carballo of Argentina in the third round of the Take Solutions Masters of the Asian Tour at the Karnataka Golf Association course in Bengaluru, India yesterday.
Ten shots off the pace midway through the $350,000 event, Tabuena stayed too far behind despite two birdies in the first nine holes but worked his way with three birdies in the first four holes at the back and seized a share of sixth place with another birdie on No. 16.
His 32-33 card at the par-71 layout gave the Filipino ace an 11-under 202 aggregate as he tied Aussie Maverick Antcliff (70), local bets CCP Shawrasia (68) and Honey Baisova (66) and Scott Vincent of Zimbabwe (65).?
They stood just three strokes off Carballo, who stayed on top with a 67 for a 199 total, one ahead of India’s Khalin Joshi, who sizzled with a 64, and erstwhile leader Danthai Boonma of Thailand, who hobbled with a 73 for 200s.
Viraj Madappa (66) and compatriot Chikkarangappa S. (68) pooled identical 201s.
