PGM LADA LANGKAWI MATERS day 3



Bryne frorm scotland Poised to Win Second PGM Tour Title with a 4 stroke lead on day 3


SCOTLAND’S JAMES Bryne continued where he left off yesterday and shot a three-under 69 to take a four stroke lead into the fourth and final round of the RM200,000 Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s LADA Masters at Gunung Raya Golf in Langkawi, Kedah tomorrow.

Bryne, who won the PGM CCM Rahman Putra Masters in February, finished the third round with a 198 total and a comfortable cushion over Lam Chih Bing of Singapore and Japan’s Mitsuhiko Hashizume, who themselves turned in excellent rounds of golf today.

Chih Bing carded the best of the third day, signing for a 65 that took him to 14-under 202, along with Mitsuhiko, who worked his way to a five-under 67.

Wasin Sripattranusorn of Thailand was in fourth spot alone, a shot back on 203, after also shooting a 67.

Meanwhile, Canada’s Lyndsay Renolds, who started the day in second place, slipped into a tie for fifth with Anthony Kang of the US, on 12-under 204.


Sweden’s Malcolm Kokocinski was seventh on 205, while compatriot and first round leader Nils Floren lost more ground on the front-runners as he came home with a one-under 71 and finished the day on 206 in eighth place.

The best of the Malaysians was Nicholas Fung, the reigning PGM Tour Order of Merit title holder, who found himself in a three-way tie for 12th on 208.

With a victory already under his belt in PGM events co-sanctioned with the Asian Development Tour (ADT) this season, Bryne spoke confidently about attempting to hold his game together tomorrow and become the second player (after Danny Chia) to win twice this year.
He said he played “well enough” but was a little disappointed with his back nine, which was compromised by a bogey on the 16th.

“Still I’m pleased with where I am,” said Bryne. “I played exceptionally well over the first two days (15-under), so to go into the last round with a four-stroke lead after a 69 today, is good for me.”

Chih Bing, who said he liked the way the PGM Tour events were organised, adding that they were “run very professionally”, was delighted with his seven-under 65.


“I was solid throughout,” said the Singaporean. “I am driving the ball very well this week and today I buried a few nice putts that lifted my round.”

A minor swing change on the 10th tee box is what turned Mitsuhiko’s day around. The tall, well-built player from Saitama, near Tokyo, was even-par over the outward nine, and then got real hot with a five-under over the last nine holes of the third round.

“That is all it took,” he said. “I just came (in my swing) more on the inside and it worked out very good for me.”

The start of the third round was delayed by rain by more than three hours – the third day in a row.
