Sam Cyr tied for 11th going to final round in Malaysia

June 22, 2013 - Robert Collias
Sam Cyr, a two-time NAIA champion, 2011 Maui Open winner and 2005 King Kekaulike graduate, is tied for 11th going to the final round of the Asian Tour's Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters.

Cyr stands at 1-under par after a 68 left him at 212 through three rounds on the Seri Selangor Golf Club in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Cyr trails leader Pariya Junhasasdikul of Thailand by seven strokes and is just three strokes away from the top five.

Cyr won his NAIA crowns in 2008 and 2009 for Point Loma Nazarene and was a 12-time winner in college. IMHO, it is only a matter of time before a big breakthrough arrives for the best professional golfer Maui has produced in a long, long time, perhaps ever.

Cyr had five birdies and two bogeys in the third round after opening 70-74.

The world's 938th-ranked golfer appears to be in line for his biggest payday as a pro, which currently stands at the $14,000 he collected for winning the 2010 Mid-Pacific Open. He was also the Hawaii State Open champ in 2011.

With a solid final round, he could also move way up the Asian Tour Order of Merit, where he currently stands 84th with a little more than $14,000 this season.

The Asian Tour takes a break until September after this week, so it is a good bet we will see Cyr on the Hawaii circuit this summer, including the Maui Open Aug. 3-4 at The Dunes at Maui Lani.
