Jordan Zunic is the man to beat at the Isuzu Queensland Open after shooting a run of 6-under 65 to lead the tournament with an impressive five shots.
With the start of the third round with part of the 7-under lead, Zunic beat away from the pack, his track record-like round of 65 catapulted him to 13-under the card.
"It was great for three quarters of the day, but that northeastern started blowing the last four or five holes," Zunic said.
"I was quite happy that it happened because it was so hot when it was calm, so it was nice when the breeze came, but making a shot became a bit trickier, and I'm really happy today, hopefully tomorrow more and I can get the job done. "
With such a big buffer, the blueprint for the final round of tomorrow at The Brisbane Golf Club will not change for the winner of the double ISPS HANDA PGA Tour or Australasia.
"My game plan has worked pretty well all week, so I stay there, depending on the wind, of course, if that changes, everything will change." I am very happy with my photos and lines. so if I just keep rolling my putts the way I've been and give myself a look at birdie, I should be pretty good. "
Adam Blyth had a place in the front row for Zunic's round, his round of 1 under the card, certainly not reflecting on a brilliant wave that the Queenslander produced under pressure with a number of impressive par saves.
"That was probably the highlight for me today, it's one of those things if you have to hang out a bit and I was able to do that," Blyth said.
"I had some fantastic ups and downs that saved me and enabled me to have a great opportunity tomorrow.
"In retrospect, I did not make any good photos and it brings me to those positions, I have to solve that tomorrow, it's great to save that par, but I want to make birdies tomorrow."
With five shots to make up for, Blyth said he had to make his way along the golf course instead of blowing it off if he would seize the opportunity to seize the title.
"I'm a bit behind, Jordan was fantastic today, he made the putts and got the job done, I just made a few mistakes while taking advantage of all his chances.
"You have to be wise, because it is not a job where you can become too aggressive or it will bite you so I have to be smart aggressive and I just have to make holes."
Blyth joined 8-under New West Welshman's card Steven Jeffress, New South Wales, he shot 5-under 66.
"My day was good, I played pretty solid and putted very nice, I feel like I left a few," Jeffress said.
"A few bogeys, one on the 13th after I hit a corker in the rose, I just hit a hard part of the green and went over the back and did not go up and down.
"I did not make too many bad shots, I was just solid all day."
Jeffress said he will cling and concentrate on his own game when he finishes in the last group next to Blyth and runaway leader Zunic
"I'm not worried about what happens at the top of the rankings to tell you the truth, I just go out and play that's what I've done all week.
"But if Jordan starts playing tomorrow and plays well tomorrow, he will be hard to catch."
Bound on 7-under the card are the US-based pair of Web.com Tour players Jamie Arnold, who shot 6-under-65 and Rhein Gibson who shot 1-under-70 today.
Jake McLeod, a member of the Brisbane Golf Club, Troy Moses, Ryan Chisnall, Michael Wright and amateurs Joel Stahlhut and Zach Murray are tied in sixth place on the 6th place.
The leading group of Jordan Zunic, Adam Blyth and Steve Jeffress will turn off at 10:50.
