Both six back in Malaysia

Australian Marcus Both is six shots off the pace heading into the final round of the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters in Malaysia. The 33-year-old Victorian carded a one-over par 73 in his third-round at the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club on Friday, leaving him at seven under the card. Thai veteran Thaworn Wiratchant is the man to catch in the final round, with his third-round 68 – in which he got round the back nine in 31 – taking him to 13 under, three shots clear of rookie Swede Jesper Kennegard. Both is one of five men on seven under, with Australian trio Gavin Flint, Kunal Bhasin and Darren Beck three shots further back in a share of 20th place on four under. Of the other Australians in action, Adam Blyth is on one under, Scott Hend is even, while Tim Stewart had a frustrating 76 in his third round to sit three over the card.
