PETALING JAYA: Iain Steel and Airil Rizman stole the third round show with identical six-under 66s at the PGM Tour’s Swiss Garden Closed Championships at Damai Laut Golf and Country Club in Lumut.
But it’s Kemarol Baharin, with an even-par 72 on Friday, who maintained his lead with a three-day total of 211. Steel and Airil’s feat saw them equalling the course record that was set by Singapore’s Lam Chi Bing in August 2006.
Steel, who has a career low round of 10-under 62, which he set on the US Nationwide Tour about a decade ago, now trails Kemarol by just one shot while Airil is tied for 14th.
“I have a bad back ... I’ve been carrying it for the past few seasons. However, it comes and goes but today (yesterday) I played a comfortable round of golf and enjoyed it,” said Steel, who shares second spot with Hans Jamil.
Airil, who blew up with an 84 and 75 on the first two days, now has a three-day total of 225.
He gave himself a big boost when he aced the par-3, 13th hole.
