Scott to continue Barclays Singapore Open battle on Monday
Adam Scott of Australia will resume his title ambitions at the Barclays Singapore Open on Monday after battling to a three-stroke lead today.
Play was suspended at 11.48am for five and a half hours due to lightning storm which left officials with no choice but to extend the fourth and final round to a Monday finish.
Overnight leader Scott, winner of the tournament in 2005 and 2006, maintained his lead on 17-under through eight holes while playing partner Ian Poulter of England was on 14-under at the US$6 million event co sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour.
Korean Kang Kyung-nam trailed the leader by four strokes on 13-under through eight holes while Ryder Cup star Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland and Anders Hansen of Denmark were on 12-under through nine and eight holes respectively at the Sentosa Golf Club.
Asian Tour members Darren Beck of Australia registered four birdies against one bogey after 10 holes to move to 10-under which was matched by Chinese star Liang Wen-chong, Rikard Karlberg of Sweden and Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand who will all return tomorrow to complete nine holes.
After play resumed at 5.15pm, Scott returned to birdie the fourth hole before adding two more birdies on holes six and eight. He will begin his title charge at the ninth hole on Monday.
"I had a bit of momentum going with three birdies after coming back from the rain delay so it was a bit of a shame that I had to stop. I would love to have kept playing," said the Australian.
With 10 more holes to go, Scott is not taking his lead for granted. "I’m thinking of the victory and not winning it three times. A lot can happen because it is a tough back nine but I would love to go out and play really rock solid and not let anybody have a chance. I’m not talking up my chances, there are plenty of good players out there," he said.
After the suspension, Poulter resumed play with a birdie on the fourth hole. However, the flamboyant Englishman struggled to maintain his momentum when he dropped a shot on the seventh hole.
"It was a long and a bit of a frustrating day to have to sit around for five hours. But when we got back out on the golf course I hit a lot of good golf shots and just missed a couple of putts from eight feet which would have had me right there with Adam. But I am playing well enough and hitting good golf shots that I am going to have ten holes to claw back that deficit," said Poulter, who is ranked 15th in the world.
The Barclays Singapore Open is the fourth Asian Tour event to record a Monday finish after the 2008 HSBC Champions in China, 2006 Hero Honda Indian Open and 2005 BMW Asian Open in China.
"After deliberation, the organising committee has decided to resume the final round of the Barclays Singapore Open on Monday where play will commence at 7.30am," said Jittisak Tamprasert, the Asian Tour tournament director.
"I enjoy being here for the Barclays Singapore Open. Everyone is really supportive and I have a good time playing golf here."
Poulter said that he was relishing a return to the Serapong Course on Saturday.
"I am looking forward to going back onto Serapong tomorrow," he said. "It is definitely the harder of the two courses but I like that. I hear it might be a bit windy on Sunday which is good too and so I have put myself up there in the hunt again which is all I could do."
Former Asian number one Liang is also itching to renew the battle with the tougher Serapong layout.
"I have played well at Serapong in the past and I am confident of getting a good score during the weekend rounds there," he said. "I am feeling good about my form this week and hopefully I can get a good finish on Sunday."
