In Round 3 Lahiri once again had a good round, however, Swede Pelle Edberg who played the best round of the tournament (62) yesterday in Round 2, played the equal best round of the day and 2nd best round of the tournament (63) in Round 3 to snatch the lead by 1.

The leaderboard at the top looks like this
1 EDBERG, Pelle -14 73 62 63
2 LAHIRI, Anirban -13 65 68 66
3 GONZALEZ, Ricardo -11 68 68 65
T4 MCEVOY, Richard -10 73 65 64
T4 KORHONEN, Mikko -10 72 65 65
T4 KARLBERG, Rikard -10 67 68 67

At halfway mark Lahiri is in good position as far as qualifying is concerned. But he has a good fight if he wants to win the tournament.
SSP Chowrasia played an under par round (-1) but it did not moved him much on the leaderboard as he is currently T70.

Could someone please explain what is the criteria for getting into the qualifiers of the European Tour and PGA Tour?

Also, is there any special incentive provided for winning the qualifiers?

So there will be a cut at the end of the day and SSP is dangerously close to it. He needs to do well today or will be going home. Couldn't get info if there was any prize money.

After R4, Anirban Lahiri stays at T2 inspire of a +1 round on the difficult Stadium course. R5 is on the same course for him. SSP did not make the cut and fails to qualify. The round of the day was a 58 by John Hahn on the easier Tour course which took him to T12 from the brink of being cut. So today is a day for Anirban to quietly consolidate his position.

Lahiri need to be careful. Just one round left. Another bad round and he may miss the tour card. He was 3 over par in the 5th round. And currently he has 3 stroke margin to remain in top 25. Well, I'm quite optimistic that he'll avoid another bad day and get his card. But we have to wait and see whether he can climb back get a better position. :goodluck: Lahiri

Round 6 is on the easier course. Expect a sub-par (around -3 to -5) from him unless he folds under the pressure.
