Jo Malone and Dylan Parish have taken the advantage with one day of play remaining in the Australian Mid-Amateur at Bribie Island.
Malone, the current club champion at Bribie Island, produced the best score of the day in the women’s field (79) to take the advantage by a single shot over Bonville’s Adele Douglas and Bonnie Doon’s Ashleigh Arnold.
Olivia Wilson and Gemma Dooley are only a further shot behind and are well and truly in contention going into the final day.
In the men’s field, Parish fired a stunning four-under-par 68 to rocket into the lead.
Parish’s round included five birdies and just the one bogey to see the Yeppoon member lead by two shots.
Damon Stephenson (-1) and Adam Mollis (Even Par) will join Parish in the final group but with Adam Hawkins and Dillon Hart only a further shot back, the event is wide open.
Both the men’s and women’s competitions are set for a thrilling finish on Friday.
