Triple bogey knocks Norris off top of Fiji leaderboard

Wade Ormsby will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Fiji International after a late triple bogey saw Jason Norris fall off the top of the leaderboard.
Ormsby produced a brilliant 66 on Saturday, firing seven birdies in ten holes from the eighth to get to ten under par.

And when halfway co-leader Norris carded a triple-bogey seven at the 16th, Ormsby found himself in possession of the outright lead.

Norris is alone in second place after he bounced back with a birdie at the long 17th to get to nine under, with James Marchesani another stroke back in third.

Ormsby began the day three shots off the lead and fell even further back when he carded a bogey at the fifth.

But the 37 year old recovered in style, reeling off four straight birdies from the eighth before making further gains at the 13th and 15th to move into contention.

A birdie at the par-five 17th took Ormsby to ten under and, with Norris dropping three shots at the 16th, he moved to the top of the pile.
