The Philippines’ Miguel Tabuena carded a three-under-par 67 on Saturday to come seven shots off the leaders entering the final round of the Asian Tour’s Hong Kong Open at the Hong Kong Golf Club.
It was the Tour’s Order of Merit No. 2’s second straight 67 following an opening-round 68 to tally an eight-under 202 in the $2 million tourney.
He bogeyed the first hole but quickly recovered with birdies on Nos. 4, 8 and 10. Tabuena once again faltered on the Par-4 15th yet kept his wits about with scores in the 16th and 17th.
Tabuena is bunched at 27th place with 18 holes left.
However, he’s eight shots behind leader Ben Campbell of Australia who was five-under through 15 holes as of press time Saturday.
His compatriot Cameron Smith is tied with him just one hole behind as well as Phachara Khongwatmai of Thailand.
Angelo Que turned in a 68 to go five-under for T49, while Lloyd Go shot a 72 to go one-under and a share of 72nd place.
