Two way tie for the lead at the Maybank Challenge

With Dylan Frittelli and Jorge Campillo a shot ahead

Two way tie for the lead at the Maybank Challenge South African Dylan Frittelli and Spaniard Jorge Campillo both shot rounds of six-under-par 66 on Saturday to share the lead going into the final round of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia.

With thirteen different players sharing the lead at some point during the third round, Frittelli and Campillo now have a point lead on the field.

India’s Khalin Joshi sits one shot back with American Berry Henson, with a group of six players a further shot behind them on -13, including Mark Warren.

Lee Westwood could only post a 70, in a round with three birdies and a single dropped shot on the par 4 10th. But he nearly holed out on the 18th with this lovely chip.

With 15 players within three shots of the lead, this one is far from over.

“It was a good round,” said Frittelli. “I think a lot of the guys are getting frustrated with the greens and I‘m just trying to stay as positive as I can, and just try and speak to them nice and get the ball to go in the hole.” 

Campillo, playing in his 196th event without a victory, eagled the first hole and produced four birdies for his 66.

”It was good,“ Campillo said. ”I played solid for most of the round. I had a few tough holes but I managed to make the putts so overall I played solid. It is a good day. 

“I‘m really looking forward to tomorrow. It is a nice position to be and I‘m excited.”
