 Aussie Green defies Friday the 13th superstition to move up to 2nd in Asian Tour Final Q School
Bangkok, January 13: Australia’s Richard Green showed no signs of nerves on Friday the 13th when he carded a four-under-par 68 to head into the final round just one shot behind Japan’s Junya Kameshiro at the Asian Tour Qualifying School Final Stage presented by Sports Authority of Thailand on Friday.
Green’s three-day total of 19-under-par 197 at the Suvarnabhumi Golf and Country Club ran contrary to the stigma usually associated to the superstitious date considered by many to be unlucky as he remains well on course to top the class.
Malaysia’s Ben Leong, who came into the week on a rich vein of form having won five consecutive tournaments at home, is hoping to spoil Green’s party and emerge at the top of the final leaderboard again after two previous success at the Asian Tour Qualifying School.
Leong enjoyed a bogey-free round of 67 which was highlighted by five birdies to share third place with Todd Sinnott of Australia.
The top 35 players and ties following the conclusion of 72 holes will earn playing rights on the region’s premier Tour in 2017.
