Damien Jordan will be looking for a wire-to-wire win as he attempts to claim his second Trukai Morobe Open title.
Jordan sits at 17- under the card, two shots ahead of Daniel Gale at 15-under the card.
The Lae Golf Club course played very differently in the third round, with a gusty breeze slowing down the pace of the players out in front.
Following opening rounds of 6-under 65 and 9-under 62, Jordan had a frustrating day on the greens and finished 2-under 69 for the third round.
“I really have played well over the first three days, and although conditions made scoring more difficult today, I am really happy with the position I find myself in heading into the final round,” said Jordan.
“I hit the ball well and gave myself plenty of opportunities but unfortunately the putts just wouldn’t drop.”
The low round of the day came from New South Welshman Daniel Gale who stormed his way into contention after firing a score of 7-under par 64.
“My round was great today, I found momentum with the putter and it felt like I couldn’t miss a putt inside 10 feet,” said Gale.
The final round of the Trukai Morobe Open is underway with the final group of Ben Clementson, Daniel Gale and Damien Jordan on course at 11.30am.
