Woodland, Leishman, Sharma tied for lead
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia—Gary Woodland birdied the 18th hole for a 5-under 67 to move into a three-way tie for the lead with Marc Leishman and Shubhankar Sharma after three rounds of the CIMB Classic on Saturday.
Woodland just missed an eagle putt, while Sharma (66) and Leishman (67) had to settle for pars on the parfive final hole. Playing in the last threesome of the day, the leading trio had 54-hole totals of 19-under 197 on the TPC Kuala Lumpur West course.
They had a two-stroke lead over Louis Oosthuizen, who moved up the leaderboard with a 65, and first-round leader Bronson Burgoon (67) in the first of three U.S. PGA Tour events in Asia.
Woodland equaled the course record of 61 on Friday that Justin Thomas shot on his way to winning the event in 2015.
Leishman had an eagle and three birdies on his first five holes to be 5 under, but was 1 over on the back nine with bogeys on the 11th and 13th after a birdie on the 10th.
