Siddikur Rahman moved up to joint 8th position at the end of Round 3 of the Indonesian Open yesterday with an aggregate score of eight-under-par (205). The two-time Asian Tour winner, who was stranded at 13th position on the previous day having played 16 holes of round two, returned early in the morning at the Pantai Indah Kapuk course to finish the last two holes with two birdies. That took him up to 8th position at the start of round three. The 29-year-old started the third round brilliantly by birdying the second and third holes before bogeying the fourth and the sixth. However, Siddikur bounced back, trading three more birdies for one bogey at the back nine to end the round at two-under-par (69) for a share of the eighth position.
Siddikur will start the final round with a five-shot deficit from joint leaders Gaganjeet Bhullar of India and Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand, who are at 13-under-par (200). Bhullar finished the day with a two-under-par (69) while Jazz carded three-under-par (68).
