Chris Stroud shot a third round -4 under par 68 to tie for the lead at the CIMB Classic with Ryan Moore, who had a third round -3 under par 69. Both players have a tournament total of -12 under par.
Ryan commented on the changing conditions on the course;
“It was almost two different days out there. I’m rolling it well, and if I’m putting well I’m going to have opportunities, and I know I’m going to make some birdies”
Chris said he was using experience gained from the past;
“I’m pulling from all that experience, and what I learned under the gun at Travelers, was I don’t need to try to do anything fancy. I just need to stick to my game plan, keep hitting shots, keep hitting good quality shots, keep putting myself in the right positions, keep hitting good putts, and stick to my strengths, which are chipping, putting and wedges, and get myself in the fairway.”
Tied in third place at -11 under par are Gary Woodland and local favorite Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Next on the board is Jerry Kelly, he is a further shot back at -10 under par.
Gary is pleased with the way he is playing;
“I’ve been playing good, I’ve been playing good for a long time, I just haven’t been putting it great and got a little putting tip from Phil actually this week, and it’s been working pretty well. Excited about that. I wanted to come over and obviously play well and enjoy the off-season a little bit better. You can do that when you get off to a good start.”
Keegan Bradley collapsed in the third round shooting a +4 over par 76, and is now tied in sixth place at -9 under par.
