Cassie Porter has completed a birdie blitz to take part of the lead in the final round of the Toyota Junior Golf World Cup, in Japan today.

Of the seven Australians participating in the Chukyo Golf Club, Nagoya, Porter is the best placed after a brilliant five-under-par group 67 that has raised the Queenslander to the top spot.

Porter, 16, shares the lead with Siwoo Chung, the leader of the evening, for eight years.

"I am super excited to dive in tomorrow and make good birds early to set the pace," said Porter.

"Today I felt a lot more confidence in myself which certainly helps.

"Everyone on the team gets along well and we have a number of good vibes and of course. It's always an honor to be green and gold."

West Australian products Kirsten Rudgeley and Maddison Hinson-Tolchard enter the final round in a share for the twelfth and 23rd editions respectively.

Of the boys, Hayden Hopewell from Royal Fremantle is the best placed with rounds of 68-72-67 (-6) for part of the 13th.

Australian junior champion Elvis Smylie scored back-to-back 70s to return to even, while Jye Pickin and Josh Greer are T38 and T45 respectively.
