After three rounds at TPC Kuala Lumpur West Course, Mark Leishman, Gary Woodland and Shubhankar Sharma share a tie for the lead. Woodland birdied the 18th hole to move into the tie at the CIMB Classic on Saturday.
Woodland shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday, which was 4 stroke higher than his 61 on Friday. He holds the a tie for the course record with Justin Thomas. “Kind of got a little loose there a little bit on the back nine, maybe ran out of gas a little, but it was nice to finish up with a birdie and get some momentum going into tomorrow,” Woodland said.
Marc Leishman also shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday in Malaysia. He started the day off hot with a 6-under 30 on the front nine, but struggled a bit with a 1-over on the back nine. “Happy with the round, gave myself a good chance tomorrow, so hopefully I can be hot like I was that first 10 holes today,” Leishman said.
Shubhankar Sharma shot an impressive 6-under 66 on Saturday. He won earlier this year in Malaysia at the Maybank Championship in February. “Good thing is that I’ve been in this position before so I know what happens and what my mind goes through, so I’ll just try and relax myself as much as possible,” Sharma said. “The way I’m playing, I’m pretty sure I’ll play well tomorrow as well.”
