Smith's 66 keeps him on track
by Martin Blake
Cameron Smith is working toward his best result of the new PGA Tour season in the Shriners Hospital tournament in Las Vegas.
The Australian followed up Friday's 63 with a 66 in the third round at TPC Summerlin today, a score that would have been even better had he not had to retee his ball on the par-four 10th, leading to a double bogey six.
Smith, who will be among the Australians tilting at the Masters green jacket in Augusta next month, had four birdies on the bounce from the 13th hole and eight for the day.
He is tied-20th overall at 14-under, a handful of shots from the lead and needing to go very low tomorrow to have a chance of winning.
Meanwhile Scott Hend is the top Australian in the BMW PGA Championship in England in a tie for 14th at six-under par through three rounds. Local product Tyrrell Hatton is three shots ahead going into the final round.
