Pressure builds on and off course at PGA

As the Australian PGA Championship heads into it’s final round after the third round was completed Sunday morning, the pressure is building both on course and atmospheric. The heat and humidity that was so evident throughout yesterday until it reached bursting point yesterday, stopping play at 5.00pm local time, is with us again and the likelihood of a late afternoon storm may yet prove a factor in the outcome of the tournament.
As the field head into round four, Jarrod Moseley has opened up a five shot lead by virtue of his two birdies in the last seven holes he completed this morning. He has that lead over Peter Lonard who had two birdies and two bogies when he returned to complete round three with Aaron Baddeley three bogies and a birdie in his last seven holes, one shot behind Lonard.
So the Australian PGA Championship is very much in the hands of Jarrod Moseley. It is his to win or lose. If he can put together a sub par round of any kind this afternoon it is hard to see those behind catching him. But any slip up by the West Australian will see many permutations involving those as far back as Norman, Chalmers, Scott at ten under and eight back and Appleby, Carolan and O’Hern at nine under.
