From the Australia Golf website
“Moving Day” as they say, got underway in very light conditions for the third day in a row, with a light northeaster prevailing at Belmont Golf Club, Newcastle, New South Wales.
Canada’s Corey Conners has set himself up for a real tilt at the title with one round to go. One under on the front nine today, he sunk birdie putts on 10, 16 and 18 for a second consecutive 68, 13 under par heading in to the last day with a three shot buffer over Cameron Davis from Monash with a third round 67 including seven birdies, to go with his 69 and 70.
Andrew McCain from the United States fired six birdies in a bogey free round of 66 (the best round of the day) and together with previous rounds of 73 and 68, sits 9 under par heading in to the final round. 

He is joined by New Zealand’s Jason Gulasekharam who shot 68 today including 5 birdies and the very consistent Simon Vitikangas from Queensland who fired a third consecutive 69.
Luke Toomey, last year’s runner up followed rounds of 67, 72 with a 69 today including an eagle on the 9th and birdies on 10, 11 and 12 to be eight under along with fellow Kiwi, Ryan Chisnell who was two under today following previous rounds of 70 and 68. One stroke back is Kade McBride from Queensland on seven under following rounds of 70, 68 and 71.
Kevin Yuan from The Australian had two front nine birdies and was three under on the back nine for a solid 68 and coupled with his previous rounds of 70 and 72, sits six under par. He is joined by Jake McLeod 69 (six birdies and three bogeys), England's Paul Howard (five birdies and two bogeys), Tylor Hodge (four birdies, one bogey) and Justin Warren who unfortunately had three over today following his 67 yesterday.
Lucas Herbert from Commonwealth Golf Club enjoyed the conditions to fire an eagle to go with 3 front nine birdies and 3 back nine birdies for a very solid 67 to go with his 70 and 74 to be 5 under after three rounds.

 Ben Stow from England found some touch with 6 birdies and two bogeys for a fine 68 to go with his previous two par rounds and is four under for the three rounds.
There are a number of players “in the mix” but Conners is playing some very solid consistent golf and will be hard to chase down.
