SHANGHAI---Luke Guthrie stumbled at the end of
the third round yesterday and wound up tied for
the lead with Rafa Cabrera-Bello in the BMW Mas-
Guthrie has led this European Tour event since
his 65 in the opening round, and he had a three-
shot lead at one point on the back nine at Lake
Malaren. But his tee shot caught the bunker on the
16th, leading to a bogey. And he was in such an awk-
ward spot on the 18th green that Guthrie felt his
best option was to chip off the putting surface. He
missed an 8-foot putt to take another bogey for an
Cabrera-Bello was far more efficient, keeping
bogeys off his card in a round of 67. His final birdie
on the par-3 17th turned out to be good enough for
a share of the lead.
They were at 8-under 208, one shot ahead of Gon-
Even though he finished poorly, Guthrie still man-
aged to see the big picture. In his first trip to Asia,
his first time playing a regular European Tour event
filled with names he has only seen in print, he had
a tie for the lead with one round to go.
A win would allow Guthrie to stay in Shanghai
one more week for the HSBC Champions, a World
Golf Championship that counts toward the PGA Tour.
There s more at stake for him than that. Because of
the strong field at the BMW Masters, a win might
be enough to put Guthrie well inside the top 50 in
Suddenly, though, those last 18 holes feels like a
long way to go.
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano had a 67 and was one
shot behind. Ten other players were within five shots
of the lead. Lee Westwood thought he might be closer
until he finished with back-to-back bogeys for a 70,
leaving him five shots behind. Peter Uihlein had a
69 and also was five back.
Rory McIlroy ran off four straight birdies to start
the back nine and was trying to work his way into
contention until he failed to birdie the par-5 15th,
and then took double bogey on his last hole for a 71
that left him six shots behind.
John Daly s return to golf, which looked so promising
in the opening two rounds, fell apart on a windy
afternoon. He took a pair of triple bogeys and shot
44 on the back nine, sending him to a 78 and out
of contention. Daly had been within five shots of the
lead until the back nine.
It didn t look like anyone would get close to Guthrie,
the only player to reach 10-under at any
point. Cabrera-Bello opened with two
straight birdies, and while he only made
two more on the back nine, he plodded
along in the wind and never dropped a shot.
The Spaniard will be going for his third
European Tour win.
Fernandez-Castano looked like he would
drop shots at the end, like so many other
players. His tee shot went into the water
on the par-3 17th --- the only green he missed
in the third round --- but he recovered beau-
tifully to drop only one shot, and then picked
up a rare birdie on the 18th to get back into
Gregory Bourdy, who won the Wales Open
this year, had a 67 and was two shots behind.
Paul Casey missed a short par putt on the
last hole for a 71, though he was only three
shots behind, along with Scottish duo of
Craig Lee and Scott Jamieson.
Simon Dyson never had a chance to make
a move. He left the course Friday in a six-
way tie for second, only four shots behind.
When he arrived, however, he was shown
a video of his play on the eighth green of
Friday s round. After marking a short putt,
Dyson inexplicably used the golf ball to tamp
a spot on the green directly in his line. That s
a violation of Rule 16-1a, which carries a
two-shot penalty. Dyson was disqualified
for signing an incorrect scorecard.
It was a big blow for Dyson, who is No
66 in the Race of Dubai. Only the top 60
advance to the World Tour Championship
in Dubai to close out the year, and because
he is not in the HSBC Champions next
week, he will have only one tournament to
try to crack the top 60. (AP)
