The stage is set for an exciting final round shoot out between PGA TOUR player Rhein Gibson and Rookie Professional Lucas Herbert.
Starting the final round a shot behind his more experienced competitor, 20-year-old Herbert managed to chase down the lead, even holding it himself midway through the tournament.
On track for a low round, Herbert became unstuck on the 13th recording three consecutive bogeys on his way to shooting 2-under 70.
Gibson looked like he would be the solo leader heading into the final round however a bogey to finish on the 18th will see him share the honours with Herbert.
Gibson got off to a tough start with a double bogey on the first after finding the water off the tee but he fought back to finish his round on 1-under 71.
The leading pair will start the final round on 11-under the card while a shot further back is Chris Wood who is aiming for a win to avoid a trip to Qualifying School.
Rounding out the top-5 on the leaderboard on 9-under the card is Max McCardle who fired a course record 8-under 64 today. He is joined by Geoff Drakeford and Jarryd Felton who each had third rounds of 4-under the card.
The other highlight of the day belonged to Troy Cox who scored a hole-in-one on the 154m par-3 17th.
The final round of the NSW PGA Championship tees off tomorrow at 7.50am with the final group of Rhein Gibson, Lucas Herbert and Christopher Wood on course at 11am.
