Seasoned Singaporean Mardan Mamat doubled his overnight advantage to four strokes to hold the fort at the Sabah Masters today. Mardan cancelled out three birdies with as many bogeys to stay at seven-under 206 during his third round at our prestigious golf course, Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club.

Despite scrambling for an even-par 71, Mardan remain on course for his fourth ASEAN PGA Tour title at the USD100,000 Tour Championship.

Although prospects are looking really good for front-runner Mardan, he is not letting his guard down as a host of local challengers are inching their way into contention.

For Malaysian Arie Irawan, it was a challenging round as he struggled to find a putt all day, returning with three bogeys against a sole birdie for a 73. However, it was not the case for Malaysian number one Danny Chia, who moved within five shots of the leader with a 67.

Joining in on two-under 211 with Chia were local pride Nicholas Fung, who carded a flawless 66 and Thailand’s Ratchapol Jantavara (69). Fellow Sabahan Ben Leong scored a consecutive 69 and stayed in the mix in joint sixth with five other players.
