BANGKOK, Thailand -- Denmark's Thomas Bjorn shot a
2-under-par 70 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead into the final
round of the Johnnie Walker Classic.
Bjorn had just one bogey, on the 13th hole, and is at 14-under
202 after three rounds at the Alpine Golf and Sports Club. He leads
Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain by one stroke. Jimenez shot a 5-under
67 to move up from fourth place.
"I had a chance today to put some air in between me and some
real threats," Bjorn said. "But by only getting it to 14 under, a
couple of guys are still in the golf tournament."
Defending champion Ernie Els of South Africa missed an easy putt
on the final hole and finished with a 69 for the round. He is at
10-under 206 and tied for eighth for the tournament.
Thailand-based Simon Yates of Scotland was tied for third at 204
with Richard Green of Australia. Green carded a 67, and Yates had
his third straight 68.
