Adam Scott has given himself a big chance at his first win in nearly three years in the American PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego.
The Australian was on fire with a third round of 65 with seven birdies and an eagle at Torrey Pines today and is only three shots from the leading role of world number 1 Justin Rose at 18-under.
The 38-year-old Scott's last win was the Cadillac championship of the World Golf Championship in March 2016.
His form this week has reflected his change in putter style – from the long putter that is not anchored to an arm-poor Matt Kuchar-style putter.
"It's almost everything to him (Rose) tomorrow, so that's not a pressure on me," Scott said.
"He just plays too well, he did well from Thursday on, he is the number one player in the world, he has been playing well for over two years, he feels it, he wants to take advantage of all his good golf and that's why he runs away with this thing.
"The good news is that there is only one person in front, so it's all at his golf club tomorrow.This is not a course I can do and just shoot at pins, it's too easy to make big mistakes, I'll just leave have to cut and we will see if he can do the same. "
Meanwhile Lucas Herbert and Jason Scrivener are both in the mix, but they have to finish tonight in the final round of the European Tour & # 39; s Dubai Desert Classic low.
Herbert, 23, is four shots back from the leader, the American Bryson DeChambeau, after winning a third round 72 against DeChambeau's 68 last night, together in the last group.
DeChambeau is 16-under, a shot for the Li Haotong of China entering the final round.
Herbert, who last year played a full card in Europe, is still looking for his first victory as a professional graduated from the elite program from the Victorian Institute for Sport and Golf Australia.
He is currently in 86th place in the world and last year in almost 200 places in the rankings.
Herbert had a tough day in round three in Dubai, with a double bogey at the par-five third hole and four consecutive bogeys to start the back nine.
Scrivener is five shots from DeChambeau & # 39; s lead after placing a 71 last night.
