Badds poised to strike

Aaron Baddeley remains in contention ahead of the final round of the SK Telecom Open after a one-under third round 71 on Saturday. The Aussie PGA Tour winner is in a share of fourth and sits five shots behind leader Korea s Bae Sang-moon. Baddeley&aposs up-and-down round included three birdies and two bogeys, one of which came on the 18th hole. I made a couple of bogeys coming in which was annoying. It was a bit frustrating. It was a lack of concentration I guess, said Baddeley, who has top-10 finishes in two World Golf Championships events this year. If I get off to a good start tomorrow and get a few birdies in early, I will have a good chance on the back nine. I played decent today but didn t get the ball on the fairways. I made a good 25 foot birdie putt on the par five third hole, that was nice. Australia s Unho Park slipped down the leaderboard after a one over 73 and now sits in eighth place at six under, a shot further back from compatriot Baddeley. Bae, who has led since the opening day, solidified his position at the top of the leaderboard after a three-day total of 12-under-par, four strokes clear of Kim Hyung-tae who was even-par for the day. American David Oh shot a 70 and joins Kim in second place.
