Home hero Alex Cejka slipped back on the leaderboard despite shooting a solid third round three-under-par 69 at the BMW International Open in Germany on Saturday. The Black Mountain sponsored player was enjoying a good run in the event where he turned in 34 and added five birdies against one bogey in his homeward nine. However, he struggled to keep pace as he double bogeyed the last for a 13-under-par 203 total.

Cejka finished the day in tied 10th position and will need a superlative effort to overtake the current leader Pablo Larrazabal of Spain, who leads on 199.

Another Black Mountain player, Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand carded a 68 to lie in tied 22nd position on a 205 total.
