Park makes his move

Australia&aposs Unho Park has fired a blistering third round of 66 to move into outright second place in the Asian Tour International at the Suwan Golf and Country Club. Park took the outright lead midway through the third round when he eagled the 13th and then followed up with back-to-back birdies at the 14th and 15th. But the 35-year-old bogeyed the 16th and 17th and will enter Sunday&aposs final round one-shot behind Japan&aposs Tesuji Hiratsuka. Despite the fact that he made two costly bogeys on his inward nine, Park was happy to move into contention. “I didn&apost really hit it well off the tee today but I must say that I putted really well instead. I holed a lot of long putts,” he said. “There were some good shots and some bad shot but there&aposs still everything to play for tomorrow and I&aposm looking forward to it.” Two shots behind Park and lurking in equal third place is South African James Kamte and Indian Rahil Gangjee, while Australian Marcus Both is a further shot adrift in a tie for fifth place. Third round scores from the Asian Tour International: (par 71) -14: Tetsuji Hiratsuka -13: Unho Park (Australia) -11: James Kamte, Rahil Gangjee -10: Juvic Pagunsan, Ted Oh, Marcus Both (Australia) -9: Toni Karjalainen -8: Danny Chia, Prom Meesawat, Iain Steel, Mark Purser
