Miguel Angel Jimenez will relinquish his UBS Hong Kong Open title but left his best performance of the tournament for the final round.
The Spaniard, who carded a one-over-par 71 on the first day to leave him with an uphill struggle from the start, was in fine form at the Hong Kong Golf Club on Sunday.
Jimenez shot seven birdies without dropping a shot through 15 to climb to five under for the tournament though it is too little too late with leader Oliver Wilson eight strokes ahead and still to begin his round.
Much of the field were all enjoying high-scoring rounds during the morning with John Daly also impressing.
The flamboyant American had reeled off six birdies without dropping a shot through 13 to climb up to seven under for the tournament.
Wilson will begin his pursuit of a maiden title on The European Tour when he tees off at 12:15pm local time (04:15 GMT) with Chinese Taipei’s Lin Wen-tang, who is 12 under, and Bernhard Langer with the German veteran a further shot behind at 11 under.
Victory in Hong Kong would move Wilson above Sergio Garcia at the top of The Race to Dubai.
