Perez builds 4-stroke lead over Schauffele at CIMB”

Smith, who broke his duck on the PGA Tour in May at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside Jonas Blixt, made birdies at the third, fourth and fifth and picked up further shots at the seventh and ninth to approach the turn in 31.

Overnight leader Perez, was on a 21-under total of 195, four ahead of fellow American Xander Schauffele on a steamy day.

"I've got to try to do the same thing on the weekend".

"That was like the flawless yardage, 207, and the cover on the front edge was like 191, so I just hit smooth five-iron and landed ideal and thought, oh, made it, it's going in", he said.

He trails Perez by five shots after trading seven birdies and one eagle against two bogeys, where he birdied the last two holes to stay in the title hunt.

"I was looking for (a car) and I think I got a good one", he added.

Kang Sunghoon of South Korea (68), Thomas Pieters of Germany (67) and overnight leader Cameron Smith of Australia (71) are tied for third, four shots off the pace at 9 under.

In Gee, a two-time victor on the U.S. LPGA Tour, is still hunting for her first victory of the year, after posting five runner-up finishes among her eight top-10s.

Fraser produced nine birdies - including five consecutive in the middle of his round - and no bogeys for a second-round 62 that took him to 13-under.

Champions: Jerry Smith, David McKenzie and Gibby Gilbert III shared the first-round lead at 5-under 67 in the SAS Championship at Cary, N.C. Jerry Kelly, Bart Bryant and Fran Quinn were one back at Prestonwood Country Club in the tour's regular-season finale. He said later: "There were a couple of shorter putts that I wasn't able to convert, but all in all, I'm very happy with the round I played today". The top 72 will advance to the playoff opener next week in Richmond, Va. The other co-leaders, Min-Sun Kim and Minjee Lee, shot 71 and were four shots back. Matt Wallace (65) was also at 13 under. He dropped 35 spots and heads into the final round tied for 38th.

The 41-year-old scorched the course with six birdies in his final eight holes to end with a two-day total of 131.

"I tried to be aggressive with the driver and hit a natural kind of cut for me down there, but I didn't pull it off and hit it in the fairway bunker and just had to pitch it out".
