Yun holds lead, but Rust vying for consecutive wins in Adams Tour at Belmar

By Clay Horning

Special to Golf Oklahoma

Andrew Yun’s right where he wants to be.

The ex-Stanford standout, who opened the OK Korral Championship with a pair of 65s, didn’t make it any easier on the field after a third-round 67 that, stunningly, included a lost ball, another in a hazard, and a double bogey without the aid of penalty strokes all before he reached the seventh hole.

“The first six holes were quite eventful,” Yun said.

Still, Yun’s at 13-under par 197, ahead of Edmond’s Dillon Rust by three strokes and Christopher Brown and Jonathan Moore by four heading into today’s final round at Belmar Golf Club.

Former University of Central Oklahoma golfer Rust shot 64 to move into contention the week after winning the Adams Tour event last week at Peoria Ridge.

“You could tell there were some nerves involved, but he’s a great putter and he was in pretty good control (after No. 6) and didn’t get in any bad spots the rest of the day,” said Drew Laning, who played with Yun Friday.

Yun lost a ball on the par 5 third hole, but responded by making par after hitting his fourth shot to four feet. Essentially, Yun eagled the hole but for the stroke and distance penalty of not finding his ball.

He found the hazard on the fourth and made bogey and suffered a three-putt to make double bogey at No. 6. Birdies at Nos. 2 and 5 helped to limit the damage.

“I knew with 12 holes left I could turn it around,” he said.

Yun did, making birdie at Nos. 9, 10, 12 and 13.

While Yun kept it going, his playing partners stood still. Laning shot 69, but fell back into a tie for 10th at 204, and Case Cochran, with a 71, fell into a tie for 17th at 206.
Rust, an Edmond Santa Fe product who finished his run at Central Oklahoma two springs ago, followed his third-round 65 with a 64.

Brown who came from nowhere Friday, beginning the day at even par and ending it at 9-under 61, despite back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 15 and 16. He also carded nine birdies and an eagle.

Moore shot 65.

The field’s scoring average Friday was 68.9, almost 4 1/2 strokes lower than Wednesday’s first round.

“It’s definitely out there,” Laning said. “Anybody can shoot a mid-to-low 60s round if they can get the putter going.”

That could make it interesting Saturday.
