PETALING JAYA: Thailand’s Sattaya Supupramai overcame fatigue and inclement weather to take a two-shot lead over Malaysia’s Danny Chia in the third round of the weather-disrupted PGM Northport Glenmarie Championship.
The Thai was 11-under through 13 holes before lightning forced play to be suspended at the RM200,000 Asian Development Tour (ADT) event at the Garden course of the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club on Friday.
Only 16 players managed to complete the third round, which started only at 12noon.
It was a long and tiring day for Sattaya as he had to return to complete his second round in the morning. He finished his remaining 12 holes, carding a three-under 69 to take a share of the halfway lead with Wolmer Murillo of Venezuela and Malaysians Nicholas Fung and Kenneth De Silva.
The Thai immediately went back to the tee to start his third round. And he continued his fine form for sole possession of the lead before play was called off for the third straight day.
“I played 25 holes today and I am very tired right now ... My putting was great. I hope to play better tomorrow,” said Sattaya, who claimed his maiden ADT title in the Philippines last year.
“I’ve been talking to my new swing coach and my game is in good shape right now. I don’t want to think about winning yet. I just want to play my game,” he added.
A total of 35 players will return at 7.30am on Saturday to complete their third round. The final round will commence at 8am in the same order of play as the third round.
