SINGAPORE - South Korean golfer Song Young Han will head into Sunday's final day of the SMBC Singapore Open with a narrow lead.

The 24-year-old, who is seeking his first professional title, was nine-under through 13 holes on Saturday before play was halted due to fading light at the Sentosa Golf Club.

Liang Wenchong of China, was the clubhouse leader after he shot a four-under 67 and is on eight-under 205.

South African Keith Horne, playing in the same and last flight as Song, was seven under with Japan's Shintaro Kobayashi at the US$1 million (S$1.44 million) tournament.

World No. 1 Jordan Spieth was a further stroke adrift on six under. He was joined by Japan's Akio Sadakata, who fired the low round of the day with a five-under 66 and was on six-under 207.

The duo are tied-fifth alongside South Koreans Wang Jeung Hun and Lee Soo Min, who carded matching 67s.
