Irfan, Airil go joint top at Darulaman

Malaysia’s Irfan Yusoff and Airil Rizman  moved into a share of the lead after the third round of the professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s Darulaman Championship at Darulaman Golf and Country Club in Perak today.

The young lad, Irfan, who turns 22 at the end of the month, and multiple Tour winner Airil, joined American John Catlin at the top of the leaderboard of the RM200,000 event with one day to go.

Irfan followed up his opening two 69s with a 68 today, while Airil fired a four-under 68 of his own. That left the hometown duo tied on 10-under 206, along Catlin, who shot a third day 66.

India’s Shubhankar Sharma (67) and Panuwat Muenlek (73) of Thailand, who led after the first two rounds, were joint fourth, another stroke back on 207.

Suradit Yongcharoenchai (68) and American John Michael O'Toole (71) were tied for sixth on eight-under 208.

The 25-year-old Catlin said after his round today: “My putting was hot today. I worked out something with my putter and just let it go from tee to green. But the putting was the key.

“There is still a long way to go and I will play it one shot at a time tomorrow,” added Catlin.

Meanwhile, Irfan, seeking a second PGM Tour success after his win at the Impian Closed Championship last year, said he was happy with how it went so far.

 “I'm just trying to stay focused and play my own game,” said Irfan. “I'm hitting the ball well and putting okay too. So if it can stay like this tomorrow (in the last round) we will see where it can take me.”
