Good start by India ... But amazing start by Pakistan, they surprised all other participants with their clinical performance.

Yesterday our hero was Rahil. He played superb round yesterday ... If today we want to improve our position then Amandeep should have to improve his performance by notches.

Seems like if not out of contention yet, it is still an uphill task for India to qualify. The third placed Korea(204) is 6 strokes ahead of 8th placed India (210). Surprisingly, Pakistan is still ahead of India by one stroke. Here are the scores after the third day.

201: Myanmar (Kyi Hla Han, Soe Kyaw Naing) 66-69-66
202: Chinese Taipei (Wang Ter-chang, Lu Wei-chih) 65-71-66
204: Korea (Kim Dae-sub, Shin Yong-jin) 67-74-63
208: Malaysia (Danny Chia, R. Nachimuthu) 63-77-68, Thailand (Boonchu Ruangkit , Thaworn Wiratchant) 67-72-69
209: Switzerland (Marc Chatelain, Ronnie Zimmermann) 67-75-67, Pakistan (Ahmed, Muhammad Shabbir) 66-74-69
210: India (Rahil Gangjee, Amandeep Johl) 67-74-69
211: Hong Kong (Derek Fung, James Stewart) 71-73-67, Sri Lanka (Nandasena Perera, Anura Rohana) 68-75-68


By the way, last year too we seemed out of contention but last day with some good performance India turned the table around.

Since the final day will be foursomes ... anything is possible ... India can score a 67 or a 77 and the same is true of Taipei or Korea ... Myanmar appears to be playing very consistently though ...

Myanmar, Chinese Taipei and Korea were expected to vie for the top three spots but for Pakistan to stay in the hunt after the third round is somewhat unexpected.

Come on Rahil and Amandeep. A six-stroke deficit can be erased in golf on the last day.

Somewhat expected result by Indians ... Both players wasn't in any kind of form before WGC Qualifying ... We were consistent all the tournament (second round was 2 over), but we only missed one great round ... Which can helped us to qualify for WGC ... but most surprising performance was by Pakistan ... They missed trip by 1 stroke ... :O ... In Pakistan prize money for professional golf tournaments r in between 20k to 5k ... Superb performance by Matloob Ahmed and Muhammad Shabbir ... We can expect more fireworks by these guys in future.

I wish the Indian team was going to Sevilla, Spain in November. :(
