    Zhang is in here somewhere. He may have a clear path out.

    Ogily has missed a lot of putts today he has a 6ft downhill right to left putt on 11 which he needs to make to get a run going.

    Ogilvy has had 1 birdie for the day and 1 bogey. Needs to hole those putts!

    Popovic putts from the runoff on the left of the green and leaves it short to have a 5ft par putt. Zhang reads his wrong and runs it past the hole.

    Hi Matt, I am heading back in. Can you keep the updates flowing for Popovic, Zhang and Ogilvy. May go back out a bit later when they are on the 16th.

    Popovic birdies the 14th to move to -11 and tie it up with A.Brown. Zhang makes par whilst Ogilvy will have at least a double bogey after finding water off the tee.

    Hi Darrell, the pin placement on 18 is 15 front, 8 left. All measurements are done in paces. Hope this helps.

    Popovic is about to play the 15th hole. He had a double bogey here yesterday and a bogey the day before. Freely admitted in his press conference yesterday that he finds it difficult to judge this hole.

    Popovic, Ogilvy and Zhang all par the 15th. Not as many scoring opportunities in the run home. 17 and 18 are amongst the 5 hardest holes on course today.

    Matt Griffin moves up to outright third at 10-under thanks to a birdie on the 16th. Now just one back from the leaders.

    Goggin has had an up and down day with four bogeys. He is still in it thanks to the five birdies, with two being on his last two holes. If he can finish birdie birdie he will sit at 10-under.

    Griffin plays from the rough on 17 and produces a fantastic shot to hit the elevated green. Could he tie it up with A.Brown and Popovic?

    Senior hits one of the best shots of the day into the 18th green. He has a 2 ft putt for birdie which would move him up to -10 and in T3 position.

    Popovic birdies the 16th to move into outright lead at -12. Zhang has bogeyed the hole and is back to -7 with Ogilvy.

    Pampling catches the edge of the cup only to see it skip past. He taps in for par and finishes with a 69 (-3) and is at -9 overall T4.

    I'm on the 17 fairway, Popovic tee shot lands in the rough to the left, Ogilvy dead center and Zhang back quite a bit

    Senior sinks his birdie putt and secures a 68 (-4) today. He is at -10 T3 for the tournament.
