Sean Lawrie dropped from joint fifth to joint 16th with a two-over-par third round of 74 in the NJCAA Men's National Championship over The Rawls Course, Lubbock in Texas yesterday.

The Portlethen Golf Club member who is a student at Midland College, Texas is on the one-over-par 217 mark after earlier rounds of 74 and 69.
He is six shots behind five players who share the lead at five-under 211. Four of them shot in the 60s in the third round to move away from Paul Lawrie's nephew.
Sean (pictured right) birdied the long 11th and 16th but dropped shots at the first, fifth, ninth and 10th over the testing long course of 7,349yd (par 72). 
Chris Low (McLennan College) from Edinburgh also shot 74 in the third round and that too dropped him down the standings, from joint 24th to joint 37th in the field of 124 players.

Chris, pictured, had a little bit of everything in his round - an eagle 3 at the 11th, birdies at the second, ninth, 10th and 16th, double bogeys at the short first and par-4 fifth and bogeys at the fourth, 15th and 18th in halves of 40 (four over) and 34 (two under).
His earlier rounds were 74 and 73 and he is on five-over 221 with a round to play.
Midland dropped out of the team lead to ninth place in a field of 24 squads. They are on 876, 10 shots behind the new leaders, Odessa who are a shot in front of Central Alabama with Scottsdale (869) third and McLennan (870) fourth.
Meanwhile, Aboyne's Daniel Thompsett (pictured left), a student at Rocky Mountain College, Billings in the state of Montana, missed third-round cut in the NAIA Men's Championship at Creekside Golf Club, Salem in Oregon.
Over a par-72 course of 6887yd, Daniel, a former North-east boys' champion, never hit his true form with rounds of 78, 73 and 75 for a 10-over-par 226, two over the limit mark for playing the last round. He had no birdies in the last 26 holes he played.
Aaron Flores (Our Lady of the Lake) (72-71-69) and Sondre Ronald (Oklahoma City) (69-68-74) share the lead on four-under 212.
