Flawless Noh leads by two at Zurich Classic

April 27:  2010 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner Noh Seung-yul of Korea became the first player to complete 54 holes at the TPC Louisiana without a single bogey after signing for a third round seven-under-par 65 to lead by two shots over American Keegan Bradley at the Zurich Classic.
Noh, who compiled a three-day total of 18-under-par 198, played with yellow and blue ribbons affixed to his cap in the first three rounds to honor victims of the fatal ferry accident back in his home country.
“I hope I can play well on Sunday to provide some good news to the Koreans back home,” said the 22-year-old, who is leading the PGA Tour event for the first time through three rounds.
“I missed a few tee shots in the first three rounds actually but my iron-play was really good. It feels great to be playing good and returning with three bogey-free rounds. I missed a few putts for birdies too but I will try and putt better tomorrow,” added Noh.
Compatriot Charlie Wi, a seven-time Asian Tour winner, posted a 69 to take a share of 41st place while honorary member Y.E. Yang returned with a 69 for a share of 50th place which also included former Asian Tour player Bae Sang-moon who holds three victories on the region's premier Tour.
Ends.
