Day moves into Australian Open lead

25 noviembre 2017 08:08

Jason Day will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Australian Open as he eyes a first title of the year on home soil.

The former world number one birdied the last hole at The Australian Golf Course on Saturday to card a two-under 69 and move to the top of the leaderboard on 10 under.

Day has dropped from the top of the rankings to 12th in a 2017 to forget, but gave himself a golden opportunity to end his barren spell by lifting the Stonehaven Cup for the first time.

The 30-year-old had to wait until the 14th for his first birdie, but made another at the next and finished with a third of his round after his only bogey at 17.

Lucas Herbert led Day by a shot after the second round, but trails his compatriot by the same margin after the 21-year-old signed for a level-par 71.

A double-bogey at 11 struck a blow to the youngster, who bogeyed the fifth in a round which included three birdies.

Sweden's Jonas Blixt surged into contention with a five-under 66 to join Matt Jones - another Australian challenger - on seven under.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth was unable to make a charge on moving day, a one-under round of 70 leaving the three-time major champion eight shots adrift of Day.
