Mee fires, but Mur­doch leads

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

ROYAL Queens­land Golf Club’s James Mee shot a six­un­der par 66 to move to within four shots of the lead go­ing into to­day’s fi­nal round of the NT Am­a­teur Golf Cham­pi­onship at the Dar­win Golf Club.

Mee’s round in­cluded seven birdies and a bo­gey at the last, when he got into trou­ble on the par-five 18th hole.

But Vic­to­rian James Mur­doch pro­duced the high­light, an ea­gle on the last hole to turn a two-shot deficit be­hind leader Shae Wools-Cobb into a one-shot lead af­ter 54 holes.

Mur­doch’s con­sis­tency over three rounds where he has shot scores of 69, 69 and 70 means it will take a big round from one of the chas­ing pack to snatch the ti­tle from him.

Woods-Cobb, who led the cham­pi­onship un­til the 54th hole, had two bo­geys on the 17th and 18th holes to blow a four shot lead.

Of the lo­cal play­ers bat­tling for the closed ti­tle, Paul Ed­wards holds a four-shot lead.
