Lahiri slips in 3rd round while SSP misses out the cut at the Scottish Open

Irvine, Scotland, July 16: Ryan Fox is within touching distance of the lead after the third round of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.The Kiwi shot a three-under par 69 to rise to a share of fifth at six-under par overall.

England's Callum Shinkwin and Ian Poulter as well as Australian Andrew Dodt lead at nine- under. 

The last of Poulter's 14 global victories was in November 2012 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

The Scottish Open is seen as an ideal tune-up for the British Open. Players probably could have done without conditions like they were on Saturday, though.

The tee times were brought forward by about three hours because of high winds forecast for late afternoon. The bad weather arrived a few hours earlier than expected, just when Poulter and the other lead groups were coming in.

Anirban Lahiri today slipped to Tied-58th after the third round with a four-over 76, while SSP Chawrasia missed the cut at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open here. 

Lahiri, who played in the morning, was not ready to blame the weather. The Indian golfer said after the initial holes he just could not get his game going.

At three-over for 54 holes, he is now Tied-58th, but was still looking to take some positives from the week that ends tomorrow. Late last evening, Chawrasia missed the cut after being caught in severe rain and strong winds over the last seven holes.
