On January 22, Beijing time, the Abu Dhabi Championship, the first match of the DP World Tour and Rolex Series, continued its fierce battle at Yas Links Golf Club. Scotland’s 38-year-old Scott Jamison entered the final round with a total score of 11 under par and a one-shot lead, but there are a large number of Ryder Cup stars eyeing him behind him. Chinese golfer Wu Ashun is the total score of par, temporarily ranked 44th.
In the third round, Sean Lowry and Thomas Peters once surpassed Jamison, both of whom shot a bogey-free 67 at 5 under. Fortunately, Jamison made a birdie on the 15th and final holes, shot a 4-under 68, and returned to the first place with a total score of 11 under and one stroke. It was also his third consecutive round to lead alone.
Scot Jamison shot a 63 on the first day to keep the lead, but on Friday he had a 74 because of windy weather. Therefore, the pressure on him increased in the third round. Fortunately, the 38-year-old kept his composure, and he also hopes to usher in his second victory in nearly 10 years.
“It’s going to be a huge temptation to win a tournament of this size,” Jamison said. “There’s some great champions here and a long way to go. All I can do is hit any shot that’s in front of me. , all these clichés stay in the moment, I just try to hit the best shot I can.”
Lowry’s compatriot and 2020 Ryder Cup rookie Victor Hofland is tied for fourth place with Shubhanka Sharma at 8 under. The other two Ryder Cup players, Spanish star Rafa Cabrera Bello and England duo Ian Poulter and James Morrison tied for sixth place with a total score of 7 under par. They were four shots behind Jamison.
Australian Grand Slam champion Adam Scott and Italy’s Andre Pavan were 6 under par and tied for ninth.
Defending champion Trier Hatton had dropped to a tie for 28th. The Englishman had six birdies in the third round, but it took him nine shots to complete the par-5 18th. He ended up with a 71, 1 under par, for a total score of 2 under par. Roy McIlroy, who is now No. 8 in the world, is also tied for No. 28, with an eagle in the third round.
After the second round of make-up, Wu Ashun entered the finals without any risk. After the start of the third round, the famous Fujian player seemed to have found his good form in the first round. He made 4 birdies in the first 11 holes without bogey. But with the last 6 holes left, the 36-year-old made two bogeys and ended the third round with a 70, 2-under par. The total score was even par and temporarily ranked 44th.
