LAHORE: During the third days competitive golfing activity continued at International Raya Pakistan Open Golf Championship  being contested at the enticing and fascinating Defence Raya Golf Course.

The formidable golf professional with an imposing and overwhelming touch, flair and prowess was the Korean, Joohyung Kim. This sparkling and lustrous Korean is the leader after three rounds and moving into the final phase, with an aggregate score of 198, eighteen  under par. Trailing him, eleven strokes in arrears is Choo Tze Huang from Singapore while M. Munir of Pakistan is three strokes behind Choo at 212, four under par. 

In the course of the third round, yesterday, the Korean, Kim was intense in application of his golfing skills and through precision and impeccability in shot making, chipping and putting, he managed to compile a score of gross 68. When added to his first two rounds scores of 66 and 64 gives him an invincible aggregate score of 198, eighteen under par.

His adversary from Singapore, Choo Huang played marvelously but certainly has to be content with a possible second position when the championship concludes on Sunday.

For Pakistan, expectations were that M. Munir would improve his position in the third round, but though he performed well and hit the ball with rigor and correctness, he did not succeed in making the required birdies. His effort however, needs to be commended and certainly bordered on excellence. With a round of 71 on the third day, he stands at an aggregate score of 212, four under par and his position on the leader board is third. Munir was hopeful that the final round will bring more luck, as he was hitting well and felt  good about his  fitness and knowledge of the grand Defence Raya Golf Course.

Others in line for top positions are Sam Lee of Fiji at a score of 213, Samuel Cyr of USA at 213 and M. Shabbir of Pakistan, also at 213.

20th October, Sunday is the final day of this Raya Pakistan Open Golf Championship.
