Melbourne - Matthew Millar overcame blustery winds to shoot a 3-under 68 — one of the best rounds of the day at Huntingdale — and take a one-stroke lead after three rounds at the Australian Masters.
Adam Scott, who led after the first two rounds, bogeyed his opening hole and struggled all day for a 77 and was five strokes behind.
Millar had a 7-under total of 206. Andrew Evans shot 70 and was in second place, followed by four players tied for third, two strokes behind: Peter Senior (68), Michael Sim (68), John Senden (71) and Matthew Guyatt (73).
American George McNeill was the highest-place non-Australian in seventh place after a 73, three strokes behind. Scott was in a group at 2-under that included American amateur Brydon DeChambeau (72).
