The Americans have most definitely taken control of the ISPS Handa Perth International going into the final round, and there is little to separate them when analysing their Genworth Statistics for the week. Both Bo Van Pelt and Jason Dufner have hit 74.1% Greens in Regulation (along with round 2 leader Emiliano Grillo), and both figure high in the Genworth Putts per GIR and Putts per Round statistics.
David Howell continues his return to form this week. With a Genworth Driving Accuracy statistic of 83.3% (ranking him second behind Aussie Andrew Dodt) and a Genworth Greens in Regulation statistic of 77.8% (ranking him fifth), his long game is arguably the most consistent of all the players going into the final round. With David also being considered as one of the best putters on tour year on year, we look for him to progress and qualify for the upcoming DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.
The strongest challenge from the Australians is coming from Greg Chalmers and Steven Jones, both at -6. Like the Americans, their golf is very similar this week. They are perhaps not quite as consistent from tee to green, but their Genworth putting statistics are outstanding. For the Putts per GIR and the Putts per Round statistics, Greg ranks 6th and 4th respectively and Steven ranks an incredible 2nd and 1st respectively. And it should also be noted that Greg is leading the Genworth Par 5 Scoring statistic with a 4.17 average (making ten birdies on twelve Par 5 holes).
The following table shows the leaders in various Genworth Statistics categories after round 3.

As we move into the business end of the tournament the field has been reduced to 72 players. The USA heads up the “Players by Country Leaderboard” and unless the single Argentine representative Emiliano Grillo is able to do something special on the final day, it is difficult to see the American duo being caught. A special mention should be given to the large representation of 41 remaining Australian players. If their “Combined Average Score” can get close to Even Par at the finish of the event, that would be classed as a good overall local performance.
