His travels may have made him weary, but Jordan Spieth will have a winning chance going into the final day at the SMBC Singapore Open.
Massive delays over the first two days at the Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club meant players had to put in several extra holes of work on Saturday, and the World No. 1 was no exception.
Spieth played 28 holes in all on a catch-up day, and the 22-year-old played that stretch in 2 under to move to 6 under total and within three of the lead. Spieth was through 16 holes of his third round before darkness suspended play.
Young Song, the leader, had posted a sizzling second-round 63 and remained steady at 9 under, thanks to a pair of birdies and a pair of bogeys in his first 13 holes of the third round.
The biggest mover on the day may have been Wen-Chong Liang, the clubhouse leader. The Chinese player completed a whopping 31 holes on Saturday but played them in 7 under to post 67-67 in his second and third rounds and reach 8 under.
Liang is the 2007 Asian Tour Order of Merit champion, but he has Spieth, who posted six birdies and four bogeys in his 28-hole day, on his heels.
A total of 15 players, including Spieth and Song, will return at 7:30 a.m. local time on Sunday to complete their third rounds. The final round is scheduled to commence at 8:20 a.m. local time with no pairings re-draw.
