Dustin Johnson Ready For Li Battle

Dustin Johnson Ready For Li Battle

Dustin Johnson says he is ready to do battle with Li Haotong on the final day of the Saudi International.

The American carded a 61 on Friday and backed it up with a 65, helping himself to six birdies, with just a single bogey on his card.

However, Haotong was the star of Saturday, recording four eagles, a brace of birdies and a bogey to sign for a 62.

The pair sit on 16-under for 54 holes, five clear of Tom Lewis, with Alex Levy and Ryan Fox seven back on nine-under par.

It appears set to be a two-horse race on Sunday at Royal Greens G&C and the world number three says he is excited about going up against his in-form Chinese opponent.

“I thought I played well,” Johnson said. “I probably played just as well as I did yesterday. “I gave myself a lot of opportunities and made a lot of good putts.

Just holed a few more yesterday than I did today is the only difference. “For me, I just go out and play like I’ve been playing, and hopefully can roll in a few more putts and see what I can do.

“Haotong is a good player. He’s obviously playing well right now. I think it’s going to be kind of a tough match against him tomorrow for the most part, but I’m looking forward to it.”
