JAKARTA:

Young Thai golfer Poom Sak­sansin fired a flaw­less seven-un­der-par 65 to seize the third round lead at the BNI In­done­sian Mas­ters yes­ter­day. The 23-year-old Poom made a sur­prise charge up the leader­board to lead by two shots on 13-un­der-par 203 from Ja­pan’s Masahiro Kawa­mura and Kalem Richard­son of Aus­tralia at the $750,000 Asian Tour event. Poom will en­ter the fi­nal round as the leader for only the sec­ond time in his ca­reer on the Asian Tour, after lead­ing in the 2014 Queen’s Cup in Thai­land be­fore fin­ish­ing sec­ond. With nu­mer­ous play­ers breath­ing down his neck, the baby-faced Poom hopes to put his ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing on the Asian De­vel­op­ment Tour (ADT) to good use as he chases for a first Asian Tour vic­tory. “After I was five-un­der, I felt like it would be my day so I started play­ing more ag­gres­sively. This is my sec­ond time in the last group on the Asian Tour,” said the one-time win­ner of the ADT, ac­cord­ing to an Asian Tour press re­lease. —AFP
