/ 05:26 AM October 01, 2017

Tamsui, Chinese Taipei— Juvic Pagunsan of the Philippines fired a two-under-par 70 Saturday to take a one-shot lead going into the final round of the $800,000 Mercuries Taiwan Masters on Saturday.

Pagunsan, who in 2011 became the first Filipino to win the Asian Tour Order of Merit, has now pooled an eight-under-par 208 to hold a narrow edge over Malaysia’s Gavin Green at Taiwan Golf and Country Club.

Green stayed in the hunt for his first Asian Tour title after shooting a 71 and stay within striking distance of Pagunsan, his playing partner. Keith Horne of South Africa was a further two shots back following a 72.
