Lee top amateur again

1:10 pm on 30 November 2008

New Zealand's Danny Lee is the leading Amateur again at golf's Australian Masters in Melbourne and will go into the final round five shots behind the leaders in a share of 10th.

Lee's five under for the tournament, one clear of the next best New zealander Tim Wilkinson who's third round of 68 has him in a tie for 16th, one ahead of Steve Alker.

Robert Allenby shares the lead with another Australian Michael Sim.

If he goes on to win he will be able to look back on one of the greatest shots in the tournament's history as the impetus for his third Masters title.

He was a shot off the lead when he started the par-five seventh hole and his second shot , a 223 metre three wood, rolled in for that rarest of golfing birds, an albatross, and suddenly he was top of the leaderboard.
