Three-way tie for lead at CIMB Clas­sic

The National - News - - SPORT -

Aus­tralian Marc Leish­man, Amer­i­can Gary Wood­land and In­dia’s Shub­hankar Sharma share the lead head­ing into to­day’s fi­nal round of the CIMB Clas­sic in Malaysia. Leish­man pro­tected his po­si­tion at the top of the leader­board overnight fol­low­ing a 67, which in­cluded an ea­gle at the third, to sit at 19 un­der. Shub­hankar, 22, mean­while, dropped just one stroke at the par-three 15th to sign for a 66 at TPC Kuala Lumpur. Wood­land had been in a share of the half­way lead fol­low­ing an 11-un­der-par 61 to tie the course record on Fri­day. The Amer­i­can looked to have seen his hopes of keep­ing in front ended af­ter a costly bo­gey at the 14th, but then picked up a shot on the par-five fi­nal hole, just miss­ing an ea­gle chance, to fin­ish at five-un­der for the round.
