April 14: Korean star K.J. Choi slipped back at the Masters Tournament with a five-over-par 77 in the third round on Saturday.
Choi’s hopes of landing a first Major title came undone when he shot seven bogeys against two birdies for two-over-par 218 at the Augusta National Golf Club.
The Asian Tour honorary member was tied 28th and will head into the final round nine shots from the leaders Brandt Snedeker of the United States and Argentinean Angel Cabrera.
Vijay Singh of Fiji, also an Asian Tour honorary member, was a further two shots back following a tied 38th result.
Chinese amateur Guan Tianlang, who made history by becoming the youngest player to make the cut at the Masters, registered a 77 for 59th, a day after his was penalized one stroke for slow play.
Ends.
