England’s Jordan Smith is back in the lead of the ISPS HANDA World Invitational presented by Modest! Golf Management, after signing for a bogey-free 65 to reach 15-under at Galgorm Castle Golf Club.


World Invitational 2021 R3

“I’ve been playing well around here for the two days that we’ve been here and I’m feeling good, the swing is feeling good, so we’ll see how it goes.

“Today we didn’t do too much wrong at all, the putter saved me quite a few times so hopefully it can do that tomorrow if needed to.

“I made some changes at the end of last year. There’s been a lot of work and a lot of getting used to it so it’s nice to see it paying off.”

He leads countryman David Horsey (64) by one shot and overnight leader Daniel Hillier (70) by four shots.

Hillier had a more difficult time on Saturday with bogeys on the 1st, 3rd and 5th holes to make the turn in 37 followed by an eagle at the par-4 11th and a birdie at the 16th.

Dutchman Darius van Driel (65) and Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura (66) are tied in fourth place at 10-under.

Thailand’s Pajaree Anannarukarn (66) and Americans Jennifer Kupcho (70) and Emma Talley (73) lead the women at 13-under followed by South Korean Chella Choi (71) one shot behind.


World Invitational 2021 R3

Anannarukarn shot the lowest round of the day with seven birdies, an eagle at the par-5 3rd and bogeys at the 6th and 8th.

Talley admitted she was distracted by her boyfriend being Kupcho’s caddie.

“It was weird,” said Talley. “I honestly didn’t like it. Now I know what to expect so I feel a lot better about doing it tomorrow. Today honestly threw me off.”
