Chattanooga (US): Daniel Chopra landed two eagles en route to a superb seven-under 65 in the third round and it lifted him to tied 13th place, up from overnight 50th spot at the Children's Hospital Classic.

Chopra, who is 25th in the Money List, could move a few places up with a good finish this week.

He birdied first and fourth and eagled the par-5 sixth and had another birdie on eighth to turn in five-under.

The Indian-origin Swede golfer bogeyed the 11th for his only mistake of the day and then sank another eagle on par-5 14th and followed that up with a birdie for a 65 that puts him 12-under for three days and in 13th place.

John Mallinger (66-65-65) found all 18 greens and stayed in lead with a 65 and he was two ahead of Billy Hurley (66).

Mallinger was three clear of Brice Garnett (66), while Argentina's Miguel Carballo (66), Australian Peter Lonard (64) and Justin Bolli (69) are five behind.

Earlier in the week, Rahil Gangjee missed the cut with round of 68 and 80.
