Round 3 of the ISPS HANDA Perth International produced 25 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 71.86. Brody Ninyette leads on -8 with Jeong, Rumford and Hansen following on -7. We analyse their performances and round up the Genworth Statistics leaders.

Brody NINYETTE -8

Brody Ninyette converted seven birdies against two bogeys on his way to a third round 67, to lead by one going into Sunday. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 22 year old Australian golfer ranks lower than expected for Driving Accuracy, but the combination of 5th for Greens in Regulation and 4th for Putts per GIR highlights some very accurate approach play, enabling him to accumulate 15 birdies in total so far and score very well across the different hole types.

Brett RUMFORD -7

Brett Rumford fired eight birdies against a single bogey on his way to a superb third round 65 (the low round of the day). Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 36 year old Australian golfer is ranking high (as usual) for the short game and putting categories, plus he leads the par 3 Scoring with a 2.75 average (alongside Finch and Lamb). An incredible year could get even better over the final day, with Brett vying for his third European Tour title of the year (on home soil).
