    Rose maintains his two shot buffer with a par at 14. He is bogey free so far today.

    Pratt comes up 20m short of the green. Will need every bit of his short game ability to get up and down for birdie

    M. Jones and Peter Senior finish their rounds, both shooting a 69 (-3). They are both at -4 for the tournament (T4) and will have a real chance of winning tomorrow.

    Peter Senior finishes his round at 4-under and T4. He has lived up to his reputation as being straight off the tee, he hit 92.9% of fairways today, that is the most out of the whole field!

    With a massive amount of slope to contend with, Pratt gets it to 15ft. Pretty flat putt that shouldn't break much, real chance to get to -6

    Getting your balance when putting is proving real difficult. Pratt misses his birdie putt to the right, 18 left to play

    Wind strong and off the left, Par is a good score on 18 with the pin tucked on the right. Plenty of misses to the right today

    Pratt pushes it long and right as predicted. Will head up to see what sort of a chip he will have back into the breeze

    With Nick Cullen playing the 14th, which is the easiest hole on the course today, can he get his first birdie of round there?

    Paddison has gone 10 pars in a row. He is at -3 (T8), even for the round.

    B.Jones eagles the 13th, up to -4 (T4)

    Looks like the cables have swallowed a ball. Pratt will mark his ball and remove the cables

    Pratt comes up short. Struggled to get any run into the wind

    Pratt bogeys the 18th, finishes with a round of 70 (-2) and is at -4 overall, 3 back from Rose.

    Pratt bogeys the last but is still right in contention going into the final round. The wind is as strong as it has been all day, should make for some exciting golf from our leaders coming in

    Senden has back to back birdies to move into a share of he lead at -7 with Rose.

    Fraser just drained a monster on the 14th for eagle now at -5 in outright 3rd. It must have been 50 ft plus.

    If anyone is at the course be sure to check out Monsterball competition after play finishes. Watch as the the long drive specialists hit from the driving range area to the green on the 1st hole. Approx 400 mtrs.

    The third round has been a bit of a disaster for Marc Leishman, with two double bogeys (2nd &15th) he posted 4-over for the day to be 2-over for the tournament. He has dropped from T11 down to T40. Looking to bounce back tomorrow.

    Rose goes for the green in two on the 17th only to see it bounce off the back and finish up under a tree. Paddison sprays it right but lands safe.

    Rose's 3rd shot rolls off the other side of the green. After looking for an eagle here he might be lucky to get par.

    Rose chips his 4th shot and sticks it this time, he has a lengthy par putt to come.

    Rose pushes it long and right on 18. Ball rolled through the crowd and next to the marquees.

    Roes plays a nice pitch over the bunker on 18 to leave himself a 10ft putt

    Rose bogeys the last to finish with a 70 (-2). He is two shots back from Senden who is playing the 17th.

    Goggin ans S.Jones both get par on 18, great result considering the wind is howling. Both are at -2 (T11)

    Both Senden and Cullen have to pitch onto the 18th green after missing the green right just like everyone else today.
