Two nice tournaments are about to wrap up their final rounds on the opposite side of the world. The JBWere Australian Masters is being led through 3 rounds by former U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy with Ian Poulter in solo second 2 shots back. The first two big Australian tournaments of the Australian summer were won by Greg Chalmers and he sits T5 entering the final round. Luke Donald, fresh off of his PGA Tour player of the year award, is hanging around the top 10.
In Thailand, Lee Westwood opened with at 60/64, but had a slight slip up with a third round 73 to let Charl Schwartzel at least somewhat in the hunt 4 shots back. 2011 PGA Tour rookie Michael Thompson is in solo 3rd 7 shots back. Also interesting is John Daly's tournament. He opened with a 65 and is hanging around the top 10 entering Sunday. While I was not impressed by his decision to blow off Q School, it's probably a good thing for golf for him to display a little bit better form. That, or this is just going to keep him barely relevant enough to extend the circus tour for another few year.
Good luck to all!
