Abraham Ancer dominates LIV Hong Kong, holds five-shot lead heading into final round

Posted : 09 March 2024

Abraham Ancer strengthened his lead at the LIV Hong Kong event, entering the final round with a five-shot advantage after an impressive eight-under par 62 on Saturday. The Mexican golfer showcased exceptional precision off the tee, recording a bogey-free round and extending his total to 15-under par after 36 holes.


 Ancer's strong performance created a significant gap between him and competitors like Harold Varner III and Eugenio Chacarra, both at 10-under par. Despite missing a short birdie putt at the first hole, Ancer's consistent play positions him as the frontrunner for the inaugural event at the historic Hong Kong Golf Club.


Ancer's near-flawless execution, with only four missed fairways in two rounds, propelled him to a commanding position. A remarkable run of five birdies in six holes from the 11th further solidified his lead.


Ancer expressed confidence in his ball-striking abilities, stating that he felt the crispness and accuracy of his shots were among the best in his career. As Ancer approaches the final round, he emphasized the importance of maintaining a strategic approach on the course.


Chasing Ancer are notable contenders, including Cam Smith, Henrik Stenson, and Jon Rahm, all sharing fourth place at nine-under par. Despite the five-shot lead, Ancer remains cautious, acknowledging the presence of major champions like Brooks Koepka. Koepka, despite a double-bogey on the closing hole, sits on seven-under par. As Ancer aims to secure victory, he emphasized a disciplined and position-focused mentality on the golf course.
