Quek closes in on title

Quincy Quek went birdie shopping and got what he wanted.

With 10 birdies in the bag, Quek virtually assured himself of the SPGA Totts Golf Invitation title at the Sembawang Country Club.

Despite carding three bogeys, Quek shot a seven-under 65 for a 131 total to take a seven-shot lead into the final round today.

Overnight leader Johnson Poh disappointed with a 73 for a 138 total, two strokes ahead of Choo Tze Huang (70-70) and Scott Barr (69-71). Like Quek, M. Murugiah has a comfortable lead in the senior section. His 71 yesterday puts him three shots ahead of overnight leader Dino Kwek. - GODFREY ROBERT
