Matt Wallace beats Andrew 'Beef' Johnston in Indian Open play-off

I will hit a few bad shots and I understand that it's all part of the game.

On a dramatic Saturday, when the top positions of the leaderboard changed on more than one occasion, Indian sensation Shubhankar Sharma and English youngster Matt Wallace shared the lead (seven-under 209) with at least half a dozen more aspirants breathing down their necks.

Sharma, who four days ago received a special invitation to play in the Masters at Augusta, shot level-par 72 with five birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

Scotland's Stephen Gallacher produced the lowest round of the day with a 67 to sit a shot off the lead as the 2014 Ryder Cup victor looks for a first individual victory in four years. So, I told myself, just hang in there.

At the par 3 fifth, Shubhankar hit his tee shot in the water, while he found the hazard in the par 4 seventh hole to lose four strokes.

Shubhankar ended the day at even par 72, while 23-year-old Wallace finished the third round at two under. Grillo scored three more birdies and one bogey before ending his round. The top-ranked Indian golfer, who was five-over through his first nine holes in round one, staged a remarkable fightback to rise into contention by going 12-under over the next 27 holes. I'm happy to be able to come back with birdies on seven and eight.

A 10-foot birdie at the seventh took Stephen Gallacher to within two, as Johnston posted back-to-back gains from the eighth to reach the turn in 32 and join the group sharing second.

The birdie on the 10th was offset by an immediate bogey.

He double bogeyed the 17th before pulling a shot back at the closing par five and said: "I'm going to draw from my experiences last week".

Talking about his future tournaments, the Chandigarh golfer said: "I'm looking forward to a good week of rest next week at home in Panchkula". Even though I didn't hit the chip flawless, the ball still rolled next to the pin and I'm happy to make that putt.

Anirban Lahiri was tied 34th at six-over-294 while Khalin Joshi and Ajeetesh Sandhu took tied 40th place with scores of seven-over-295.

Anirban Lahiri (75), the 2015 victor and three-time champion Jyoti Randhawa (76) tied 32nd at four-over, while Khalin Joshi scored a poor 81 to stay tied 37. Teenaged amateur Kshitij Naveed Kaul (two-over-146) as well as Karandeep Kochhar, another teenager, and Udayan Mane (both with totals of three-over-147) will also make the cut among the Indians.
