Veteran Udorn and amateur star Sarit lead Singha Pattaya Open

Pattaya, July 16: Udorn Duangdecha last won the Singha Pattaya Open six year ago and is one round away from a second victory after staying out on front after the third round today at Burapha Golf Club.
The 45-year-old Thai, the halfway leader, shot a two-under-par 68, to lead on 13-under.
However, he was joined at the top by Sarit Suwannarat – a young Thai amateur half his age.
Sarit, a member of the Thai team that won the team gold medal in last year’s SEA Games in Singapore, shot a sizzling 64.
Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond is two behind after carding a 66, in the ASEAN PGA Tour event.
Thitiphun Chuayprakong from Thailand, who qualified to play in the US Open last month for the first time, is one stroke further back following a 69.
First round leader Natipong Srithong from Thailand, winner of the individual and team gold medal, with Sarit, at last year’s SEA Games, is five off the lead after he also shot 69. He tied sixth with six other players.
Udorn claimed the King’s Cup in Thailand on the Asian Tour in 2010 and will look to rekindle that magic tomorrow while young Sarit will try to upstage him and the chasing pack of top professionals.
Thailand’s Prom Meesawat, winner of this event in 2011 and 2012, came in with a 69 and is six off the lead in a tie for 12th, along with his illustrious compatriot Thaworn Wiratchant, who fired a 71.
