    JUVIC PAGUNSAN had a disastrous start but limited the damage by steadying himself up on the back nine for a 73 in the third round of the Open Championship on Saturday in Lancashire, England.

    The 34-year-old Pagunsan, who topped last year’s Asian Tour money list, enters the final round at six-over 216, and will look to break the trend—he has scored in rising numbers with a 71 in the opening round followed by a 72 then a 73.

    Pagunsan actually birdied the par-3 No. 1 but dropped four shots in four holes from No. 3, a par-4 that he double-bogeyed. He bogeyed the fourth hole and dropped another shot on No. 6 to reach the turn at Royal Lytham & St Anne at three over.

    The Bacolod native traded a birdie for a bogey on the back side to score three over for the day and six over for the tournament.
