April 13: Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand slipped back at the Masters Tournament after shooting a third round three-over-par 75 on Saturday.
The EurAsia Cup star, who captained Team Asia to a tie with Europe in Malaysia last month, carded two birdies against five bogeys for a six-over-par 222 total, which put him in a share of 38th position in the year’s opening Major.
Thongchai, who made the halfway cut for the first time in his career, shot his worst round in three days after struggling with his tee shots at the Augusta National.
“My fairway hits and greens in regulation decreased and that’s why I shot a higher score compared to the opening two rounds. I hit some poor shots that put in me in trouble but I escaped after deciding to play a bit conservative,” said the three-time Asian Tour number one.
Jordan Spieth and former Masters champion Bubba Watson share the lead after the third round on 211.
Asian Tour honorary member Vijay Singh of Fiji shot a 74 for tied 29th while Korean star K.J. Choi registered a 78 to lie in 42nd position.
Ends.
