Perez fires 64, stretches lead

Perez leads the recent Tour Championship victor Xander Schaufelle by four shots with another shot back to South Korean Sun Kang at the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Perez extending his one shot 36-hole lead to four as he heads into tomorrow's final round. Cloudy, no wind. I didn't think I really played that well.

"I wasn't feeling very good this morning when I was warming up on the range, so I just went out there just trying to manage around the golf course".

Perez qualified him for the season-ending Tour Championship and he finished 11th in the final FedEx Cup standings.

Hideki Matsuyama stormed into the mix with five straight birdies on the front nine, and the world No 3 also birdied the final three holes to cap a flawless nine-under 63 - the low round of the day - which lifted the Japanese ace into a share of fourth with a resurgent Keegan Bradley, who also kept a bogey off his card in a 65. I knew I had to do that again.I'm not really anxious about the board, I'm anxious about the end number. Stricker won the John Deere Classic from 2009 to 2011.

"You would much rather have the group chasing forward up the leaderboard than kind of stagnant".

Nicholas Fung slipped to joint 72nd place after securing a three-day total of 220.

"I played pretty well today and Pat really made a lot of putts today". "Today I took it to a new level with the putter".

"These guys are so good and you can make so many birdies out here so fast and I know that".

For Sunday, he said, "Well, Pat (Perez) is at 21-under and I'm at 12, so I'll have to do at least what I did today or better to have a chance".

Perez led at the halfway stage after opening rounds of 66 and 65, and he continued his daily improvement as he hit back from his only dropped shot of the round at the 13th with four birdies over the last five holes in hot and humid conditions at TPC Kuala Lumpur.

Meanwhile, Kang's compatriot, Kim Meen-whee, the golf gold medallist at the 2010 Asian Games, stole the limelight today when he sank a hole-in-one at the par-three 15th hole which earned him a brand new BMW 740Le xDrive Hybrid auto.

Smith, who led on day one by a single shot after a 64, could only shoot a one under 71 on day two, his score not helped by a bogey five on the second and a double bogey six on the seventh, which came towards the end of his round having started on the 10th tee.
