Scott dominates in Melbourne
Adam Scott carded a five-under par 66 on Saturday to take a four-shot lead into the final round of the Australian Masters.
The defending champion, who was the joint leader at the half-way stage alongside compatriot Nathan Holman, made seven birdies on a windy Royal Melbourne course to finish the third round on 14-under.
Holman carded a third round 70 to finish in a tie for second place on 10-under, alongside fellow Australians Matthew Griffin and Nick Cullen – who both carded 69s – and former world number one Vijay Singh, whose 63 was the best round of the day.
World number eight Matt Kuchar was a further stroke behind on nine-under after a 67, while New Zealand’s Ryan Fox (66) finished on eight-under.
Scott, the world number two, remains in top form during the best year of his career, and is still on track to make a clean sweep of the marquee events Down Under after winning last week’s PGA Championship and with the Australian Open in Sydney to come.
