Scrivener snatches the lead in Perth

Local Jason Scrivener has taken a one-shot lead going into the final round of the Australian Boys&apos Amateur Championship at Cottesloe Golf Club, Perth. The West Australian fired a third round 69 to sit on seven-under, one ahead of Lincoln Tighe and four ahead of Danny An who dropped off the pace with a 74. World Junior Champion Matthew Giles had a third round 78 to leave him at three over the card and seemingly out of contention as the field commences the final round of play. Defending champion Boyd Watts is well back at 10-over after rounds of 80, 72 and 74. Stay tuned to Golf Australia for final results as they come to hand early this evening.
