Beck confident of maiden win

Darren Beck is holding onto a one-stroke lead going into the final day of the Greater Building Society Queensland PGA Championship but is coming under severe pressure from Andrew Bonhomme and Michael Curtain. In hot and breezy conditions at Emerald Lakes, the New South Welshman carded his second consecutive five-under 66 score to be at 19-under overall. However, after leading the field by three strokes going into the weekend, he is now just one stroke ahead of Bonhomme, who produced an eight-under 63 to go with his two previous rounds of 66. Beck, though, was happy with his round and confident he can hold on for his maiden Von Nida Tour victory. “I didn&apost do too much wrong today, just a couple of drives left, but overall I am very happy with it, especially making a couple of nice par saves to finish,” said Beck. “I&aposm excited about tomorrow. I think I&aposve got another low one in me tomorrow,” he said. Beck&aposs previous best in a Von Nida Tour event was an eighth placing in Townsville where he let a good lead disappear. Victorian Curtain, was round in 64 to move into contention at 17 under and is just two back of the lead, as Julian Reynolds produced the round of the day, a 62, to finish at 16 under, four behind.
