HUGHES STAYS IN PGA LEAD

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

CANADA’S Macken­zie Hughes over­came a triple bo­gey to shoot a two-un­der-68 and keep a one-stroke lead af­ter yes­ter­day’s windy third round of the US PGA Tour’s RSM Clas­sic. Hughes took a 7 at the par-4 11th, his only over­par hole in the first 54, to stand on 16-un­der 196 en­ter­ing the fi­nal round at the par-70 Sea­side course at the Sea Is­land, Ge­or­gia, re­sort. The 25year-old tour rookie from Hamil­ton, ranked 287th in the world, is play­ing in only his ninth PGA event. His best re­sult was a share of 13th in last month’s 2016-17 cam­paign opener, the Safe­way Clas­sic. Shar­ing sec­ond on 197 were Tai­wan’s Pan Cheng-Tsung, Colom­bia’s Camilo Vil­le­gas and Amer­i­can Billy Horschel with Amer­i­can Ches­son Hadley another stroke adrift.
