    Thomas fires 70 to share lead after 3rd round of CJ Cup

    JEJU, South Korea — Justin Thomas fired a 2-under 70 in windy conditions to share the lead with fellow American Scott Brown after the third round of the CJ Cup on Saturday.

    Thomas offset a lone double bogey and a bogey with five birdies to reach the clubhouse at 9-under 207.

    "I know for a fact I played better today that I did on Thursday when I shot a 9 under," Thomas said. "It's just so hard out there. I've never played in a place where the wind swirls as much as it does here."

    Brown had back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 10 and 11 but recovered with two birdies on the back nine, adding to the one he had on the par-4 No. 5 for a 71.

    Anirban Lahiri of India moved into a share of third place with Australian Marc Leishman (71) after a 69 that included four birdies and a bogey.

    Whee Kim (70) was the highest placed of the 16 South Korean players in the field, tied for fifth after a 72.

    Overnight leader Luke List struggled with the conditions and fell into a tie for eighth place after a 76. List had three bogeys on the front nine and a pair of double bogeys on the back nine.

    Jason Day also struggled with the wind, carding a 71 to be tied for 16th on 3-under 213.

    More wind is forecast for the final round on Sunday.

    "It's going to be tough but everyone has to deal with it," Thomas said. "So we're just going to have to get a great game plan and stick with it and just try to make as many pars as possible."
