Sam Cyr one shot back in Taiwan, in final group today

October 5, 2013 - Robert Collias
King Kekaulike graduate Sam Cyr surrendered his lead but is just one shot back going into the final round of the Mercuries Taiwan Masters at the Taiwan Golf and Country Club.

Cyr, who stands at 4-under-par 212 after a 73 in round three, will be in the final pairing today with Australian Scott Hend.

This comes from

Meanwhile Cyr was blown off course by the gusty winds which packed speeds up to 48 mph.

After mixing three bogeys against three birdies in his outward-nine, Cyr dropped furthers shots on holes 10 and 17.

The 27-year-old American was clearly relieved when he salvaged his round with a closing birdie at the last.

β€œIt was tough as you got to take your time for every single putt. Two-footer, one-footer, you got to line them up. I got to back away a few times as it was really windy. It was definitely a grind,” said Cyr.

Cyr and Hend β€” two of only four players under par for the event β€” tee off at 5:35 p.m. HST if I have figured the time difference figured correctly.

You can follow the live scoring here. Cyr is poised to make a major jump up the Asian Tour Order of Merit, where he currently sits 81st with $21,271. Hend is third on the Order of Merit with $271,128.

Let me just add this about a golfer I have been covering since high school: A win or good showing could not happen for a nicer, more sincere guy, who has been plugging away at the tough world of professional golf for some time now and is perhaps the best golfer ever born and raised on Maui.
