Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia • While Bo Van Pelt was flirting with a rare 59 in a third round that was close to impeccable until the last hole, Tiger Woods was getting increasingly frustrated with his mistakes at the CIMB Classic.

Van Pelt had four birdies in the first six holes, then five in a row from the eighth. He had two more birdies on the par-71 Mines Resort and Golf Club course on Saturday, and only needed another one to join an elite club to go under 60. Only five players have ever done it during a PGA Tour sanctioned event. But he hit his approach into the greenside bunker and needed three putts, finishing with a double bogey for a 9-under 62 and a share of the third-round lead.

LPGA Tour

Yang Mei, Taiwan • Inbee Park of South Korea shot an 8-under 64 to take a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Taiwan Championship. Park had two eagles and five birdies and was at 18-under 198 at the Sunrise Golf and Country Club.

Champions Tour

Mark Calcavecchia shot a 3-under 69 to increase his lead to four strokes after the second round of the AT&T Championship.
