Nisbet on track

Daniel Nisbet maintained his stranglehold on the MasterCard Junior Masters with an even-par third round in very testing conditions at The Vines Resort & Country Club in Perth. The Queenslander dominated the field in the first two rounds but wind and rain prevented him from further extending his lead. Second placed Bryden Macpherson of Victoria fired an impressive round of one-under to cut the margin to seven shots going into the final day. West Australian Aidan Bae had the round of the day, posting a 68 to move into a share of third place alongside Geoff Drakeford who managed a 70. Jessica Noh is still topping the women&aposs leaderboard but had her lead slashed to just one. Noh struggled to a 74 as Justine Lee surged to a 70 to put herself right in the hunt with one round remaining. Emma Ash is also in contention just three behind the leader and Emma Betland sits in fourth place, six strokes off the pace. Click here for a full leaderboard
