CHOO CHUGS ONE SHOT AHEAD IN SARAWAK MASTERS

MEDIA RELEASE FROM THE ASIAN TOUR
Kuching, Malaysia: Singapore’s Choo Tze Huang battled to a two-over-par 74 to take a slim one-shot lead over Malaysia’s Akhmal Tarmizee and Filipino duo Jhonnel Ababa and Charles Hong after the third round of the PGM Sarawak Masters.
The 25-year-old Choo, touted as one of the region’s rising stars, seemed to be coasting towards a comfortable lead at the Sarawak Golf Club before stumbling over his last three holes with one bogey and a double bogey in the RM180,000 (approximately US$60,000) Asian Development Tour event.
“I was doing well, and putting decent. But in the last three holes, I didn’t quite do it. It was a bad finish,” said Choo, who compiled a three-day total of one-under-par 215.
“The greens are tough to get close to as they are firm and quick. They are really challenging and you really need to be patient out there which I was today. I’m quite happy despite the finish,” added Choo.
With one round to go, Choo is hopeful he can secure his maiden title on the ADT which rewards the top-three finishers on the final Order of Merit with Asian Tour cards for the 2013 season.
Malaysia’s S.Siva Chandhran and Jeremiah Kim signed for a 73 and 74 respectively to share fifth place with England’s Peter Richardson (70) and Japan’s Mitsuhiko Hashizume (71) on 217
