The golfers of the DP World Tour continue to battle it out in the Asian swing, a springtime interlude leading up to the Augusta Masters. We are now just one round away from the conclusion of the Hero Indian Open (prize money 2.5 million dollars), an event organized in collaboration between the European Tour, Asian Tour, Asian Golf Circuit, and Professional Golf Tour of India.

Nakajima, results

With 18 holes remaining in the tournament, Keita Nakajima leads the leaderboard. The Japanese golfer tops the standings with a score of -18 (198 strokes) thanks to another excellent round of -4. Nakajima boasts a four-stroke lead over Frenchman Romain Langasque and Malaysian Gavin Green, who had the best performance of the day with an extraordinary bogey-free -8, embellished by an eagle on the 8th hole.

Jeong weon Ko from France and Matteo Manassero are tied for fourth place at -13. The Venetian golfer put together the "worst" round of the weekend but still managed to finish with a score of -2, keeping him in the top positions.

On the par 72 course at the DLF Golf and Country Club in New Delhi, India, scrolling through the leaderboard, we find Veer Ahlawat from the host country in sixth place with -12, followed by Englishman Sam Bairstow one stroke behind.

Dutchman Joost Luiten sits in eighth place with -10, while rounding out the top ten in ninth place with a score of -9 are German Yannik Paul, Englishman Andrew Wilson, and another Dutchman, Daan Huizing. Lorenzo Scalise climbs 7 positions thanks to a solid -2 for the day, bringing him to a total of -6 and placing him in 24th position.

Francesco Laporta remains stable, unable to improve on his daily par, maintaining his position at -4 in 35th place. Lastly, Saturday was a forgettable day for Edoardo Molinari, who carded a disappointing +4, slipping to 67th place with a score of +2. Tomorrow, in the Italian morning, the final and decisive round will determine Marcel Siem's successor.
