#Slorach, Oskar seize third round lead at TPC KL
Mitchell Slorach and Oskar Arvidsson seized the third round lead of the #rofessional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) MIDF TPC Kuala Lumpur Championship in Bukit Kiara today.
Twenty-eight-year-old Slorach carded a three-under 68 to move to an 11-under 202 total alongside Sweden’s Arvidsson, who had a four-under-par 67.
Malaysia’s Danny Chia, who led the RM200,000 tournament over the first two days, shot a one-over 72 that left him alone in third place, one stroke back on 210.
Fellow Malaysians Nicholas Fung (67) and Gavin Green (68) were tied for fourth place on nine-under-par 204.
Arvidsson said after his round: "I’m happy that I putted well today. I buried a couple of long putts and made some good putts for par as well, so it really went well for me out there.
“I must say that my ball striking was good too and I hope it continues in the final round because that’s when it would count most."
Meanwhile, Singapore’s Slorach said: "I had another enjoyable round today although I lost some momentum at the last hole where I had a bogey after three-putting.
“Overall, I hit my wedges well and I made some putts, so it was a good round.
“It started off well as I was three-under after the first four holes and then I managed 35-foot putt for birdie on No. 7.
“Now I just hope to keep it going like this in the last round .”
