Lindsay Renolds: 'I think I’ll be in a good position to win tomorrow if I stay consistent.'
PETALING JAYA: Canada’s Lindsay Renolds is just one round away from his first Asian Development Tour (ADT) win at the PGM-UMW Sabah Classic at the Sabah Golf and Country Club.
The Phuket-based Renolds carded a third round four-under 68 Friday for a three-day total of seven-under 209 – and a two-shot lead over American James Bowen, who returned with the day’s lowest score of 66.
Overnight co-leader Nicholas Fung (72), compatriot M. Sasidaran (71) and Wolmer Murillo (70) of Venezuela are joint third on 212 at the RM180,000 ADT event.
Malaysia’s Iain Steel, the current ADT Order of Merit leader, and compatriot Shaaban Hussin, who led in the first two rounds, slipped down the leaderboard after posting a disappointing 78 and 77 respectively.
Renolds, who has recorded six top-10 finishes on the ADT this season, hopes his consistency will finally be rewarded with a long-awaited victory.
“I putted well enough to put me at the top of the leaderboard. The course was pretty wet due to the rain but, overall, it’s still in a good and playable condition. I think I’ll be in a good position to win tomorrow if I stay consistent,” said Renolds, who marked his card with six birdies against two bogeys.
Bowen, who is second on the ADT Order of Merit, was delighted to be on track for a third ADT victory this season. If he wins, Bowen will be the first player on the ADT to win three titles in a single season.
Nicholas, meanwhile, was disappointed with his putting but hopes to turn his game around in Saturday’s final round.
