Defending champion Des Smyth will go into the final round of the Arcapita Seniors Tour Championship one stroke off the lead after a disappointing second round of level par 72 at Riffa Views, Bahrain.
The joint overnight leader bogeyed the two closing holes to slip into third place at the final event of the European Seniors Tour season, behind John Bland of South Africa and Adan Sowa of Argentina, who are both on four under par 140 after second rounds of 69 and 71 respectively.
