Fowler charges four clear in Korea
Rickie Fowler had moved four strokes clear after Saturday’s third round of the Korean Open, but Rory McIlroy has blown it.
Rickie Fowler had moved four strokes clear after Saturday’s third round of the Korean Open, but Rory McIlroy has blown himself out of contention.
The American young gun, who had started the day in a five-way tie for the lead that included McIroy and local favourite YE Yang, the 2009 PGA champion and Asia’s first ever major winner, took command by shooting a stunning eight-under 63 that took him to 13-under for the tournament.
Yang, whose home support remained as vociferous as ever, is four shots back in second place after posting a 4-under 67 that in turn has put him two strokes clear of fellow South Korean Kim Meen-whee, but McIlroy, who was always struggling to find an momentum, seems to have shot his bolt after posting an erratic two-over 73 that has left the Northern Irishman trailing Chan by all of 10 shots
