Callum Shinkwin edged into a one shot lead as the final round of the Hero Indian Open got under way at DLF Golf and Country Club.

The Englishman had been two behind when he finished his work on day three but a Julian Suri double bogey on the last put him in a share of top spot and another Suri blemish at the third on day four gave him the lead.

Shinkwin started his final round with three pars to stay at 11 under.

Scot Stephen Gallacher and Japan's Masahiro Kawamura were at eight under, a shot clear of local favourite S Chikkarangappa and England's James Morrison.

Gallacher has made just one cut so far this season but he finished in the top ten here last year and opened with a birdie to get within two, with playing partner Chikkarangappa also making a gain.

When the final group got under way, Kawamura dropped a shot on the first to fall to eight under and leave Gallacher alone in third.

Gallacher then gave his opening birdie back on the third and the leading duo had extended their advantage to three shots with a pair of pars each.

Suri then joined Gallacher in bogeying the third and Shinkwin had the lead on his own.

George Coetzee, Robert Karlsson Sihwan Kim and Mikko Korhonen were six shots off the lead.
