June 15: India's Shiv Kapur continued to put out another spirited performance by signing for a one-over-par 71 at the third round of the U.S. Open on Saturday.
The 32-year-old Indian, who holds one Asian Tour title, mixed his card with six bogeys and five birdies to sign for a three-day total of four-over-par 214 at the year's second Major held at Pinehurst No. 2.
Kapur, who is making his U.S. Open debut, will head into the final round in tied-23rd place, 12 shots back of runaway leader Martin Kaymer of Germany.
Asian Tour honorary member Ernie Els of South Africa signed for a 72 for tied 35th place while Noh, the youngest Asian Tour Order of Merit champion in 2010, carded a disappointing 76 to slip to a share of 46th place.
Korean American Kevin Na, a former Asian Tour winner, posted for a 73 to take a share of seventh place.
Ends.
