Lee five off the pace in Hong Kong

8:27 am on 4 December 2011

New Zealand golf number one Danny Lee is five shots off the leader, Spain's Alvaro Quiros, heading into the final round of the Hong Kong Open.

Lee's in a five-way tie for sixth behind the 28-year-old from Cadiz who's led from the start and ended the third round on 10 under par for the tournament, just ahead of Swede Peter Hanson.

Lee shot his second round of par 70 for the tournament, not quite as good as his five under second round but still the equal-lowest score in Hong Kong this time around.
