Korean lead shared by locals

Dae-hyun Kim and Dae-sub Kim have the joint lead after round three of the Korea Open, and are the only two players under the card. Dae-hyun Kim struck a five-under 66 at Woo Jeong Hills Country Club, which included seven birdies and two bogeys, while his fellow South Korean Dae-sub Kim carded a one-under 70 to be tied at the top on three under par overall. Outright third is another South Korean – there is just one non-local in the top 10 – Wook-soon Kang on even par, after he carded a two-under 69 for his third round. Tied for fourth are Hyun-bin Park, Sang-hee Lee, Ho-sung Choi and Kyung-nam Kang – all level on one over par overall, with Park and Lee both shooting 68s on Saturday. Seung-yul Noh, YE Yang and American Chang-kyu Hong are tied for eighth spot to round out the top 10, with the trio on two over. Noh went particularly low for his third round, registering three under for the day at the OneAsia Tour tournament. Japan&aposs Ryo Ishikawa is outright 11th, some six shots from the leaders, after carding a two-under 69 for his third round.
