Texarkana Gazette - - SPORTS -

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.
