IMPRESSIVE: Lewis Hoath scored a four under par 67
Queensland's Lewis Hoath has clocked the round of the day, a four-under-line 67 to take a lead from two shots and enter the final round of the Avondale Amateur.
Two shots behind Hoath is Castle Hill's Jordie Garner, who fired a two-sub-par 69, and second-round leader Jye Pickin, who dropped after a disappointing 74.
New South Wales GC representative ZInyo Garcia and defending champion Blake Windred are again six defeated.
Like the weather, Hoath was in a warm form, with six birdies and an eagle on his card, next to four bogies. The lead could have been even bigger, except for back to back bogies on 17 and 18 to finish.
"I started pretty well, I birdied the first and caught a long eagle on three, so three in three were a solid way to start."
The 18-year-old said that the key to his round was to stay in the present in the difficult circumstances
"Just take one photo at a time, that's all I was trying to do, and it seemed to work pretty well."
Hoath is no stranger to the winners circle, with a series of titles including the Greg Norman Junior Masters and the Gary Player Classic to his name.
The Queensland Junior State team member is hopefully a good show at Avondale. He is hopeful that the chance to claim the title can lead to selection in the Queensland State team.
"I'm trying to get into the men's team, there are a few open vacancies," he smiled.
KK leads with one at Avondale
FORM: KK Park enjoyed the warm weather in Avondale
Kum Kang Park takes a one-off lead in the final round of the Avondale Amateur after placing an even-parronde of 72 in sultry conditions today.
By pushing the mercury almost 40 degrees, the 18-year-old, who had the nickname KK, remained composed while most of her fellow competitors faded in the stifling heat and processed three birds in her solid round. The lead would have been three, if not for an unfortunate double bogee on the last one.
"I played well, except the double on the last hole.
"I am disappointed in that."
When they were printed about the extreme conditions, Kang said she really enjoyed it.
"It was not very hot, but I love the summer."
With expected milder conditions tomorrow, Kang said she believed the key should be smart about her wave.
"You have to play smart golf here", she laughed.
Shooting from KK is NSW Junior Champion Hye Park, while another Korean Min A Yoon is in third place.
Lisa Edgar, last week's NSW Amateur Champion, and Kiwi Carmen Lim have clocked the best laps of the day, a couple of 70. The effort was good enough for Edgar to climb fourth only, and Lim to a draw for the 5th.
Best of the local contingent is Concord & # 39; s Belinda Ji, while the local Avondale favorite Grace Kim is four against seven at five past five.
