Shubhankar climbs to tied 19th at Cazoo Classic; Anirban moves up to tied 28th at Wyndham Championship

Shubhankar Sharma (70-71-68) struck a four-under 68 to climb 15 spots to tied 19th after round three of the Cazoo Classic on the European Tour.

Sharma's total score read seven-under 209 after the penultimate round. The Indian's round featured seven birdies, a bogey and a double-bogey.

American Russell Henley was the leader at the Wyndham Championship with a total of 15-under 195.  

Anirban, currently 118 in the FedExCup standings, is all but certain to retain his PGA Tour card for next season being placed inside the top-125 at the end of this week's event. He will be playing The Northern Trust Open next week which will be the first of the FedExCup Playoff events.
