BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat has a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Asian Tour International on Saturday.
Aphibarnrat capped his round with an eagle and is at 9-under 207. He leads South Korea’s Hwang Inn-choon, who had the day’s best score with a 67.
Singapore’s Lam Chih Bing (71) and American rookie David Johnson (69) were another shot back.
Kiradech, a 20-year-old former world junior champion, caught a break on the final hole when his tee shot hit a light pole and he was allowed to retake the shot with no penalty. From 225 yards, he then hit an approach shot with a 4-iron to within 10 feet of the pin which set up his eagle.
