CONTINUING blustery conditions made scoring difficult as competitors battled for the 2015 Australian Open at a challenging Australian Golf Club on Saturday.
Overnight leader Matt Jones teed off at 7-under with a three stroke lead over rookie Todd Sinnott (pictured) but no-one was going anywhere quickly.
Adam Scott eagled the par five 18th hole for a 3-under 68 finish at just 1-under for the tournament but still wasn’t discounting his chances.
“[The eagle is ]huge for tomorrow,” Scott said. “Just going out there, teeing off under par, it’s always a good feeling but the difference between 5 or 6, or 7 and 8 shots is so huge. You never know how they’re going to finish up but at least I clawed into red figures and start tomorrow hopeful of something special.”
