Cologne (Germany): Indian golfer Shiv Kapur got a rude jolt on the third day as he carded a three-over 75 to slip to tied 22nd in the BMW International Open here.

Kapur had five bogeys against just two birdies and will need a special round on Sunday to get back to a good finish.

The 24-year-old Danny Willett moved into a one-shot lead going into the final round.

Seeking his maiden win, he carded three-under 69 at Gut Larchenhof to move to 12-under.

Kapur bogeyed the second, eighth and ninth and birdied only the seventh on the front nine. A birdie on 13th was followed by bogeys on 14th and 18th for a disappointing 75.

Willett turned in 35, holed a huge putt across the green for a birdie at the short 11th and after another gain at the 14th, pitched to six feet at the par-five 16th for his sixth birdie of the day although there was a third bogey at the last.

Willett is one ahead of compatriot Chris Wood and halfway leader Joel Sjoholm, with South African Keith Horne and Australian Marcus Fraser – who has victories in Korea and Russia, on ten under.

Jeev Milkha Singh and SSP Chowrasia had missed the cut earlier on.
