Emerging Australian golfer Min Woo Lee takes the lead by three shots ahead of the final round of the Australian PGA Championship, surpassing former Masters champion Adam Scott despite several challenges.
Min Woo Lee’s Impressive Lead
Min Woo Lee has taken the lead with a three-shot advantage ahead of the final round of the Australian PGA Championship. The emerging Australian talent was 17-under after carding a 5-under 66 in Saturday’s third round at Brisbane’s Royal Queensland. He narrowly missed an eagle putt on the 16th hole that would have further increased his lead.
Adam Scott’s Performance and Challengers
Former Masters champion Adam Scott, who was chasing his first title since early 2020, stumbled on the back nine to card an even-par 71 and remain at 11-under. Meanwhile, Rikuya Hoshino and Curtis Luck are the nearest challengers to Min Woo Lee, with Hoshino claiming the second position at 14-under and Luck moving into third at 13-under.
Several highlights of the tournament include Lee’s remarkable steady round, Scott’s missed opportunities, and Hoshino and Luck’s impressive performances. Additionally, New Zealander Michael Hendry, who returned to tour after a blood cancer diagnosis, delivered a bogey-free round of 64, reaching 7-under.
