Victorian pair Scott Laycock and Ashley Hall lead the way in the Victorian Open with one round remaining at the Spring Valley Golf Club in Melbourne. Laycock hit a two-under-par third-round 69 to join Hall at the top of the leaderboard on eight-under after he could only manage a one-over 72. Another Victorian duo in Craig Spence and Craig Scott sit one shot adrift of the pacesetters on seven-under along with New South Welshman Rohan Blizzard. Laycock is confident of his prospects on Sunday. “I feel good heading out tomorrow. I feel comfortable with the way I am swinging it and hitting it so we&aposll see how we go,” said Laycock. “I think I was five behind at one stage. It was a different wind today. It turned the full 180 so a lot of the holes played a lot differently, longer clubs in, a couple of the par fives straight downwind … but I&aposm pretty happy with how I went.” “It&aposs a fabulous golf course. The last time I played here was in 1994 at the Australasian Tour School.” Overnight leader Heath D&aposAltera struggled with the blustery conditions, dropping a whopping five shots to slip down to equal seventh on five-under. New Zealander Gareth Paddison is in outright sixth spot on six-under thanks to a four-under-par 67 in round three. D&aposAltera joins Andre Stolz, Brad Andrews, Aaron Townsend and Cameron Percy in a tie for seventh spot.
