    Great stretch of holes on the back 9 for birdies and possible eagles 10, 13, 14, & 17 all playing below par today. The finishing hole the 18th is the hardest though, only one birdie so far today.

    Pete Seniior and Andre Stolz playing the 11th. Both -3 for the Tournament and right in contention

    Rose chips it on perfectly, he has a more desirable putting distance and makes it. Paddison also makes his crucial putt for par

    And we have an outright leader. Justin Rose birdies the 7th to move to 5-under.

    Check out Jacob working on his putting at the TalyorMade demo next to the 10th tee. His favourite golfer is Adam Scott

    I'm thinking 5 under David. The players may be able to pick up shorts on the par 5's coming in

    A relieved Goggin makes par on 7 after a tough uphill second shot.

    Stuart Appleby joins Justin Rose in the lead at 5-under. Brenton has predicted some good birdie opportunities on the back nine so we could see Appleby go even lower in his closing four holes.

    Jones tee shot on 8 has crossed over onto the opposite fairway, he'll have to be strategic with the next shot as he'll contend with strong winds

    Shaun you will be pleased to see that Kyle Stanley has had a birdie streak from the 11th - 14th. He is now T7 at 3-under with four holes to play.

    Weather Update: Sunny and 27 degrees on course. Wind is now a East to Northeasterly approx 30km/h with gusts up to 40 km/h. Feels cooler out there now than it did earlier with the wind strengthening.

    Kieran Pratt makes his eagle putt, he takes the lead at 6-under! Huge for the young Pro.

    Appleby makes his first bogey for the day on the par 3 15th. He is now at -4, two shots behind Pratt

    Goggin makes a nice birdie on 8 and Jones should be happy with par after a wayward drive

    Cullen, B.Jones & Fraser all still without a birdie

    Senden so close after a 30ft putt for his first birdie, taps it in inches from the hole for par

    Pratt misses his lengthy par putt on 12 and moves back to -5 sharing the lead with Rose.

    Appleby pars the 16th, now on to the easiest hole on the course the 17th. Could he eagle it?

    M.Jones and Geary both birdie the 14th. They are both at -4 (T3).

    Appleby so close to the water on 17 after his drive. Hits a safe layup to the middle of the fairway and still has a chance at a birdie.

    Matt Stieger & Matt Griffin finish with two birdies at 17 & 18 to end the third round at 1-under and in the top 20.

    Crowd favourite Peter Senior is two under for the round and -3 for the tournament (T9). Would be great to see him right in the mix this time tomorrow.

    Rose goes for the green in two on 11 and comes up luck hitting a sprinkler at the back of the green to hold the ball up, chance for eagle now.

    Pratt birdies the 13th do move back into outright lead at -6.
