Indonesia's Rory Hie took the third-round lead in the US$1 million Indonesia PGA Championship yesterday. The former US college star fired a third-round five-under-par 67 for a three-round aggregate of 13-under-par 203 at Imperial Klub Golf near Jakarta. Australian Mathew Millar, the first- and second-round leader, carded a 71 and was in second place, one stroke behind. Hie nailed seven birdies to charge into the lead. A double bogey on the 13th saw him fall one shot behind Millar but then the Australian finished badly with bogeys on 14 and 18.
