New Zealand's challenge at the Indonesia PGA Championship continued to move the wrong way during the third round on Saturday (local time).

David Smail, Michael Hendry and Gareth Paddison all carded one-under 71s on day three at the Bumi Serpong Damai course, sliding down the leaderboard.

Smail, tied for eighth at the halfway stage, dropped into a tie for 17th after a round that included three birdies and two bogeys.

Hendry went from tied for 16th to tied for 27th after being undone by back-to-back double-bogeys on the back-nine. Hendry made three straight birdies at the fourth, fifth and sixth to flirt with contention, however he gave all those shots back with doubles at the 13th and 14th, before coming home with a birdie-birdie finish.

Paddison, who lead after the first round but slumped with a two-over 74 on Friday, also had a pair of double-bogeys, at the first and 14th, in a round that also included six birdies and a bogey.
