Justin Quiban closed with a three-under-par 68 and moved into a good position to clinch an Asian Tour card in the coming season.

The 26-year-old Filipino collected six birdies against three bogeys to finish on 7-under 273 in a temporary tie for 22nd spot at the Lake View Resort and Golf Club in Thailand Saturday.

Quiban, who started at the back, birdied the first three holes but made back-to-back bogeys from 17 to reach the turn on 1-under.

He birdied 3 and 4, bogeyed 5 but gained a stroke on 8 to salvage his round.

The final cut was pegged on 3-under with Justin de los Santos making it on the number after a 67.

Jhonnel Ababa bowed out with a 74 and 3-over total.

John Lyras and Jack Thompson shared the lead on 17-under after shooting 66 and 64, respectively.

Back home, Sebastian Lorenzo upended Tonito Payumo, 1-up, in their grueling 36-hole final match for the championship at the Manila Golf Club Saturday.

Miiguel Velasco turned back Mike Ozayta, 3 and 2, to win the Class A title.

In the Class B final, Andrei Ty needed three playoff holes to hold off Jaime Panganiban.
