PETALING JAYA: Malaysian golfer Ben Leong sizzled with a four-under 67 to put himself in a position to claim a top 20 finish in the Singapore Open after a two-over 73.

Birdies on the last two holes saw Ben finishing with a total of two-under 211 to put him in joint 24th position as the tournament enters the final round at the Sentosa Golf Club today.

It is the lowest round of the week for the Sabah-born golfer after carding 71 and 73 in the first two rounds.

Danny Chia finished with a three-over 74 to settle for a share of 64th spot on five-over 218 while Nicholas Fung had a three-over 75 for 73rd spot. American Kim Si-hwan stayed out in front after the third round but was joined at the top by Sadom Kaewkanjana from Thailand.

Si-hwan carded a two-under 69 while Sadom fired a 65 to lead on 11-under in the final event of the 2020-21 season on the Asian Tour.
