    Angelo Que continues to wield hot putter, stands two strokes off Marcus Fraser in Hong Kong 

    Oct 18, 2014

    ANGELO Que hit four birdies on the back nine, including a 40-footer on No. 17, for a 67 to move into a share of third place after the third round of the Hong Kong Open on Saturday.

    The Filipino shotmaker, hoping to go all the way to the top this time after a fifth place last year, had only one birdie against two bogeys on the front nine but a bold approach on No. 10 at Hong Kong Golf Club that led to a birdie gave him a big boost in confidence.

    “I got pretty aggressive on the 10th hole. Hit a driver and got it on. I started from there and made birdie and just kept going. I’ve been putting well the whole week. You’ve got to hole a lot of long putts to do well. I don’t think anybody who has played a low round in their lives didn’t make a 40-footer in their rounds,” Que told

    Que also made a 40-footer on No. 15 in the opening round for a five-under 65 before carding a 69 on the second day.

    The former Philippine Open champion stood just two strokes off Marcus Fraser, who fired a 65 after two straight 67s for a 199 aggregate.

    Scott Hend of Australia was alone in second at 200 after rounds of 67-66-67, while tied with Que were Jbe Kruger of South Africa and England’s Mark Foster, who both shot 66.

    Second-round leader Ernie Els, a four-time major winner, slid to joint sixth after a rollercoaster 71 featuring an eagle and a double-bogey.
