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.”
