PETALING JAYA: Malaysian golfer Danny Chia continued to bask in the lead of the RM200,000 PGM Northport Glenmarie Masters despite carding a two-over 74 in the third round at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club yester- day.
Danny, who has a three-day total of seven-under 209, is three shots ahead of compatriot Nicholas Fung and Mohd Azman Basharudin, who are joint second on 212.
Danny, who is recovering from a stiff neck, was two- under for the day after five before his putter went cold and he drop-ped five shots in the next 10 holes.
He was fortunate enough to birdie the last, which kept him on track to becoming the first Malaysian to win an ADT title this year.
“My putting was an entirely different story today compared to the last two days.
“The pins were placed on difficult areas of the greens, resulting in the relatively high scores,” said Danny.
He was, however, delighted to capitalise on his overnight lead of four shots ahead of American James Bowen, who slipped down the leaderboard with a 215 total after carding a 76 yesterday.
“I’m glad I had a big lead going into today’s round. I’m in a good position and it’s nice to see some Malaysians behind me.
“Hopefully, I can win it ... but if I don’t, I hope one of the Malaysians can do it,” said Danny.
