David Walker (The Heritage GC) is trailing close behind on 111 and Darren Makin (Gardiners Run GC) is tied for third with Jasper Stubbs (Huntingdale GC) on 114. Fullerton, playing off a daily handicap of 1, is also 4 shots clear in the A-grade nett heading into the final round tomorrow.

Mason and Johnson also find themselves atop the leaderboard in the nett division with scores of 108 and 109 respectively. Sitting 2 shots further back is local hope Jamie Baker on 111.  

In C-grade, local members Paul McInnes and Jacob Parker are leading the way in the gross competition. McInnes played two steady rounds of 66 and 67 to lead Parker by 1.
