Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea: Thailand’s Chinnarat Phadungsil knows he faces an uphill battle despite holding the third round lead at 12-under-par through nine holes after play was suspended due to darkness at the C J Invitational Hosted by K J Choi today.
Tournament host K J Choi trailed closely behind Chinnarat after reaching the turn at 11-under-par to stay one shot back of the Thai while South Korea’s Kim Dae-hyun believes that staying patient would be key after he took third place at 10-under-par through 10 holes.
With almost four hours of play lost due to heavy fog in the morning, 62 players will have to return on Sunday morning to complete their third round at 9.20am with the final round scheduled to start at 10.20am.
Playing alongside tournament heavyweights, Choi and American Ben Curtis, Chinnarat held his own when he got off to a par-birdie-birdie start at the Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club.
The 23-year-old parred the rest of the holes but had a nasty scare on the par-three eighth when his wayward drive found the greenside bunker.
He recovered well with an impressive up and down before saving par with a 10-feet putt at the US$750,000 event which is jointly sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Korean Golf Tour.
