Min Woo Lee signed for a third-round 66 featuring seven birdies and two bogeys to increase his lead to three shots at 17-under at the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship.

“I again played pretty solid,” said Lee. A couple of mistakes but that happens. But overall, pretty happy with the way I went today.

"I’ve been hitting the ball so well all year and the results have been there. I just feel like it was just a couple of moments that I stuffed up, like on 8 today, I pulled an iron where I can look back and just hit a 7-iron and draw it off the right side and not be in the trees on the left. Stuff like that, I think everything’s been pretty up to par with how I think I’m going and how I have been going. Yeah, that’s pretty much it. It’s just those little moments.

"I hit a 4-iron there [at the 15th]. We were in between hitting hybrid onto the green, because it was soft or 4-iron and I decided to just hit a low draw because I was pretty confident with the 4-iron. I thought I pulled it just a little bit but the way I’m swinging it right now, the draws aren’t really drawing, they’re just little draws. So it came out perfect and it rolled up and had like a 10-footer. I thought it would be a bit straighter than what it was and just missed it."

The Australian last won on the DP World Tour at the 2021 Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club and would like to finish the year with another title.

"At the end of last week the season technically ended but the year hasn’t ended and I wanted a win on the DP World Tour, so it was in the back of my mind and I wanted to win. So yeah, it will be amazing. Any win’s awesome. I have the potential to win but I’ve only had three wins, so it’s not like it comes off. Any time you win it’s an amazing feeling."

Japan's Rikuya Hoshino carded a bogey-free 64 featuring six birdies on the back nine to move into second place at 14-under.

Australians Curtis Luck (66) and Adam Scott (71) are in third and fourth place respectively followed by countryman Lucas Herbert (69) in a share of fifth place at 10-under alongside Scotland's Connor Syme (64).
