Perez extends lead with 8-under 64 in Malaysia

  Perez extends lead with 8-under 64 in Malaysia Pat Perez turned in an 8-under 64 at the third round of the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic to open up a four-shot lead over closest rival Xander Schauffele. The American, who led by a single stroke coming into Saturday, turned on the style on the back nine with six birdies, giving him nine for the day against just one bogey. After three rounds, Perez is on 21-under 195."These guys are so good and you can make so many birdies out there so fast and I know that," said Perez.

Fellow American golfer Xander Schauffele was on Perez's tail after a long-range eagle on the third hole set up his 5-under 67.

Defending champion Justin Thomas had another poor round by his high standards, a 71. A three-peat on the TPC Kuala Lumpur where he clinched his maiden U.S. PGA Tour title in 2015 seems a tall order.

Two bogeys compounded by a double bogey on the 12th meant Thomas was 10 shots behind Perez, at 3 under for the tournament.

Perez, meanwhile, was hoping for more gusty winds and rain after making eight birdies, including four in a row. He's at 13-under 131 overall.

"I don't want sunshine at all. It's too hot, way too hot," Perez said. "I like it just the way it is right now, perfect. Cloudy, no wind.

"I didn't think I really played that well. I got off to a slow start, I was 1 over through four. We had the break, and ... I like the front (nine), I play better on the front."

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

Tour rookie of the year Schauffele said he was comfortable.

"Everything's kind of coming easy," Schauffele said. "Today was one of those weird days where (I had) all the breaks. I had some squirrely tee shots and a couple of weird drops. But they all kind of went my way."

More unsettled weather is expected over the weekend.

The administration of President Donald Trump has been quietly cutting support for halfway houses for federal prisoners, severing contracts with as many as 16 facilities in recent months, prompting concern that some inmates are being forced to stay behind bars longer than necessary. The Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long confirmed the cuts in response to an email inquiry from Reuters, and said they only affect areas with small populations or underutilized centers. The Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long confirmed the cuts in response to an email inquiry from Reuters, and said they only affect areas with small populations or underutilized centers.
