Ahmedabad, Jan 16 (IANS) Gurugram’s Priyanshu Singh extended his lead to four shots in Round 3 of the PGTI’s Final Qualifying Stage for the 2019 season at the Kensville Golf and Country Club here on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Priyanshu (72-70-70), the overnight leader by three shots, further built on his lead with a second successive round of 2-under-70 that moved his total to 4-under-212.

Delhi’s Wasim Khan (74-71-71), last year’s PGTI Qualifying School champion, was placed second at even-par-216.

Priyanshu came up with a flawless round and his two birdies on the 7th and 15th came as a result of conversions from a range of 16 to 20 feet.

The professional from the DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurugram, the only player in the field to have not shot a single over-par round so far, also made two brilliant par-saves on the 14th and 17th where he recovered well from the trees and hazard respectively.
