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.
