Min Woo Lee started the day with a three-shot lead and fired four birdies, a bogey and a double bogey at the par-4 3rd hole to close with a 70 at The Australian Golf Club. He retains a share of the lead at 13-under at the ISPS HANDA Australian Open.

With a win on Sunday Lee could become the seventh Australian to win both the Australian PGA Championship and Australian Open in the same year.

“If I win, I win and last week was last week. I played great then, so hopefully I can finish it off tomorrow.

“I know there’s a lot of history to it, but it’s just another tournament. If it goes well, it goes well.

“Obviously it is towards the end of the year and [my] last round of the year is tomorrow, but it’s just another reason to give it my all before I take a break.

“I’m pretty happy with the game and I feel fine. So, hopefully tomorrow’s good.”

Japan's Rikuya Hoshino produced a bogey-free round featuring four birdies and an eagle at the par-5 14th to close with a 65 for his share of the lead.

“I’m going to use my experience of winning many tournaments in Japan and also my goal is winning on the DP World Tour this year, so I’m going to try to do my best," said Hoshino.

England's Alex Fitzpatrik bogeyed the 5th then made four birdies and an eagle at the par-5 14th for a 66 to move into a share of third place at 12-under.

Patrick Rodgers of the United States fired six birdies and three bogeys for a 68 for his share of third place.

Australia's Lucas Herbert made six birdies and a single bogey for a 66 and solo fifth place at 11-under.
