Noh in contention in US

June 29: Noh Seung-yul of Korea, the 2010 Asian Tour number one, charged into contention at the Quicken Loans National after shooting a five-under-par 66 in the third round on Saturday.
Noh was tied second after trading six birdies against one blemish for a four-under-par 209 total to trail the leader Patrick Reed of the United States by two shots.
The lanky Korean hopes to win his second PGA Tour title in three months after putting up another impressive performance at the Congressional Country Club.
“I like the long course because it's a good advantage for me. Even you miss the fairway, but still a chance with short iron or mid-iron to the green. It's getting hot out there and the course is firm and fast. A little tough today but very good scoring, so maybe another good chance for tomorrow,” said Noh, the youngest ever Asian Tour Order of Merit winner.
Asian Tour honorary member K.J. Choi of Korea slipped back on the leaderboard to tied 48th after shooting a 75.
At the BMW International Open Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand fired a four-under-par 68 to lie in tied 25th position on an 11-under-par 205 total. Gaganjeet Bhullar of India was a further shot back in tied 31st as they trail Pablo Larrazabal of Spain.
Ends.
