    We will be back in the morning to cover the final round of the Emirates Australian Open. Its sure to be a great showdown with so many great players within 5 shots of the lead and with the wind expected to increase again in the afternoon, one of the players teeing off in the morning could post a score good enough to win. See you all tomorrow.

    12 birdies on the first already today more than any other hole at this stage.

    Some players that are bogey free and starting to creep up.
    - Brett Rankin -3 for the day moves to +1 and T31 for the tournament.
    - Michael Hendry just started and is -1 for the round and at Even par for the tournament.
    - Nick Flanagan is -2 for the round and at +1 overall.

    Watson pars the 17th hole to remain bogey free. Can he produce another good result on 18 and finish on a high?

    Felton birdies the first to move to -2 and T9.

    Tom still so forgiving of his time with the press and media. It's been great having you here Tom

    Adam Scott getting ready for today's final round. The long putter may be a disadvantage today with extreme wind making it difficult to get balanced

    The 18th (picture taken earlier) has the pin on the left for the final round. Players will be using the wind which will be blowing from right to left to get the ball in position here today.

    Nick O'Hern playing solid so far with two birdies taking him to -1 overall. If he can keep the bogeys to a minimum he might post a score that could threaten the leaders later.

    Thank you to our volunteers for their help this week. The carry board staff may have the hardest job today, like carrying a large sail around in the wind

    Chalmers moves to -2 with a birdie on the first, which despite the wind is still playing under par today.

    Might be the best place to warm-up today with wind gusts making course and practice golf extremely difficult

    Marcus Fraser bogeys the first to move back to -1 (T18)

    Like Fraser, Ogilvy has also bogeyed the first and is now at even (T22)

    Ogilvy struggling already with another bogey at the 3rd. The 3rd was the hardest hole for round 3 and doesn't appear to have gotten any easier overnight.

  • Tom Watson says even par will be a good score this afternoon. #AusOpenGolf

    O'Hern birdies the 8th and is now up to -2 (T9)

    Mclean birdies the 13th and is -1 for the round (+2) for the tournament.

    With 2 Australasian Tour wins to his name, Coolum Classic and Aus PGA Champs, O'Hern knows how to get it done in Oz. Could be real interesting if he can set -2 or -3 in the clubhouse

    BMW NZ Open winner Jake Higginbottom shot a 75 (+3) today and finished the tournament at +11, tough week for him.

    With the leaders not far away, time to look at the contenders...

    Peter Senior will have the experience and the game to handle todays difficult conditions, anything around even par may get the job done

    Ogilvy and Griffin with three bogeys in first four holes. Both are now at +2.

    Coming from Europe, we expect Justin Rose to draw on his European Tour and traditonally windly Tournament golf to shoot something around even par although he made a mess of 17 and 18 coming in yesterday

    The last of my Top 3 is John Senden; with a two shot lead and a reputation as one of the worlds best ball strikers, par golf will win his this event. Who are your 3 tips for today?

    Nick O'Hern after being -3 thru 9 holes and moving to T9, made triple bogey on 10 just before play was suspended. Tough break
