Louis Oosthuizen leads the Perth International at the 54 hole stage at Lake Karrinyup Country Club, in Australia.
Louis took control of the Perth International with a third round -5 under par 67, to post a tournament total of -15 under par, and will take a three shot lead into the final round tomorrow.
He said he was playing nicely, especially with the putter;
“I need to play good golf tomorrow, solid golf, give myself a lot of birdie opportunities like I did today, and there’s not much more that you can do then.”
“I think anyone will expect to win, but there’s a lot of golf to be played.”
“You need to still hit the shots. Around this golf course especially, someone can go three, four under in the first five holes and it changes everything.”
“I played pretty solid the last two rounds, I drove it beautifully. Today was not great off the tee, but iron play was pretty good.”
“The putter is behaving. I’m reading the greens very well and I feel like I’m making great strokes.”
“I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
Peter Uihlein -1 under 71 today and Romain Wattel, a bogey free -7 under 65, are tied in second place at -12 under par.
Jason Scrivener is the best placed Australian, in fourth place at -11 under par, he carded a third round -3 under 69.
Local favorite Brett Rumford went backwards today, carding +1 over par 73, to post -10 under par. He had back to back Eagles today to recover from +4 over after 13 holes.
Marcus Fraser, Mikko Korhonen, Richard T Lee, Alexander Levy and Mardan Mamat are all at -9 under and will have a long haul to catch the leader.
