KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Bo Van Pelt missed a chance for a 59 on Saturday when he closed with a double bogey in the third round of the CIMB Classic.
Van Pelt, the defending champion in the unofficial PGA Tour event, birdied four of the first six holes, then birdied five in a row from the eighth on the par-71 Mines Resort course.
He had two more birdies to reach 11 under in the round and only needed one more to break 60.
However, he hit his approach on the par-4 18th into the greenside bunker and needed a chip and two putts to finish.
He ended up with a 9-under 62 for a share of the third-round lead with Robert Garrigus at 16 under.
