India's Gaganjeet Bhullar stayed firmly in the driver's seat at the Venetian Macau Open golf after scrambling to a two-under-par 69 in the third round here on Saturday.

The 24-year-old Bhullar, who has led the USD 750,000 Asian Tour event from the opening day, retained his overnight two-shot lead at the Macau Golf and Country Club but rued two missed putts from close range over the last two holes.

Thai youngster Thitiphun Chuayprakong also shot a 69 to stay in contention for a maiden Asian Tour victory while Filipino Angelo Que (70), Scott Hend of Australia (69) and American Berry Henson (68) will enter the final round four shots back.

Three-time Asian Tour No 1 Thongchai Jaideeā€™s challenge fizzled after a disappointing 73 while Bangladeshi Siddikur also failed to mount a run at Bhullar following a 72.
