Watt poised for victory at the Dunes
Since winning the Keperra Bowl last month and then narrowly missing in a play-off against Oliver Goss at the Western Australian Open, Brady Watt’s game continues to be on the up.
Rounds of 73-67-66 to be at 10-under-par at the Dunes Medal in Victoria sees Watt with a four stroke buffer over Jake Stirling moving into the final round as the Western Australian sets his sight on another National Trial title.

Should Watt win tomorrow it will be his third victory this season, after collecting the Lake Macquarie Amateur in January and the Keperra Bowl a few week’s back in Brisbane.
Watt continues to card impressive low tournament rounds and today’s 66 was no exception when the majority of field failed to break 72 to secure par around this challenging and brutal layout.
Oliver Goss was another to play well in the third round with a 67 to add to earlier rounds of 69-75 to find himself in a tie for third position at 5-under, along with Tom Power Horan.
Chris Brown, the 2012 SA Golf Classic winner, is a stroke behind at 4-under, along with Anthony Huston and Ryan Woodward.
Daniel Bringolf, winner of the recent Federal Amateur, is in a share of 8th position at 3-under, along with Geoff Drakeford, runner-up in this event to Todd Sinnott last year, and Ben Eccles, James McMillan, Sam Rawlings and Aaron Wilkin.
Defending champion, Todd Sinnott, has not fired in this event with rounds of 72-70-75 and is at 1-over.
