India’s new golfing sensation Shubhankar Sharma rolled in four birdies in a span of six holes in the middle of the fourth and final round at the HNA Open de France today.
Shubhankar, who opened the week with 76 and then repaired with 69-71 on next two days, finished with a round of three-under 68 to complete the week in even par 284.
Shubhankar, whose last two events outside of PGA Tour and WGC produced tied 14th in Volvo China and tied seventh at Hero Indian Open, was also hit by two double bogeys, one each on first and second days.
He was tied 27th when he finished but with a lot of players yet to finish, his final position is likely to be inside top 25.
The 21-year-old Sweden’s Marcus Kinhult maintained his two-shot advantage heading into the final round.
Both Kinhult and his playing partner, Ryder Cup player Chris Wood, signed for four-under par rounds of 67.
Kinhult was 10-under through three rounds and Wood was eight-under.
The pair will have three of the world’s top players— Sergio Garcia, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm chasing them later today.
