September 27: Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee shot a seven-under-par 64 to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the Porche European Open on Saturday.
Thongchai, the only player to win three Asian Tour Order of Merit crowns, edged clear of a packed leaderboard on 13-under-par 200 with four birdies in his closing seven holes at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.
After shooting four birdies on the front half, Thongchai dropped his only shot on the 10th hole. He recovered with birdies on 12, 13, 15 and 16 to take charge.
“I played solid all three rounds but today I putted much better. You have to have good tee shots here as the greens are tricky. I enjoy playing this course and my game is good right now. I’m confident and I hit a lot of good shots.
“Seven-under is very good for me today. I’ve not had seven under for a long time. Normally I’ve been about four under par, but the greens are soft and I can attack the pins here,” said Thongchai.
Rikard Karlberg of Sweden, a two-time Asian Tour winner, was five shots back in tied 16th place while Scott Hend of Australia was a further shot back in tied 20th on 206.
Ends.
