Marc Leishman is the third place in the final round of the Championships in Kapalua in Hawaii, but he needs a low round to catch leader Gary Woodland of the United States.
Only Woodland (17-under) and Rory McIlroy (14-under) are three laps ahead of the Australian after he had carded a 68 today.
Leishman has to make four shots to draw with Woodland, who in his third round 68 issued a 20-meter-long eagle spit.
& # 39; & # 39; When you try to play for a trophy, it is not easy to defend leads & # 39; & # 39 ;, said Leishman AAP & # 39; s Evin Priest after the third round.
It's been years since I've driven so well and hopefully I can ride it tomorrow. I will need it because Gary plays great golf, then Rory is just behind him and, like big hitters, they will probably make lots of birdies. & # 39; & # 39;
The other Australian in the top segment, Jason Day, saw his chances evaporate with a third round of 75 today.
