The 21-year-old Aryan, a winner of five amateur titles, scored on all the three par-5s (seventh, 10th and 13th) leaving himself tap-ins on two of them as he played some excellent chip shots.

Aryan, who has represented India at events such as the Asia Pacific Amateur, British Amateur and the Singapore Junior, said, “I was pretty solid today having missed just two fairways and three greens in regulation. It was a neat round as I didn’t have to work hard to save par anywhere.

“My substantial lead after the first two rounds did take the pressure off me but despite that I started afresh today treating it like a new day and didn’t take things for granted. I’ll have the same approach on the final day,” the Mysurean added.
