Ann Jang and Jedd Brady are still the ones to beat heading into the final round of the NSW Junior Championships.

Today at Liverpool, Jang faced some challenges, finishing with a one-over-par round of 75, bringing her total score to -4.

“It was okay out there today, but I just made a stupid double on the last. That feels bad but it’s alright. I had some putts that didn’t drop, but I’ll take it,” she said talking about her round.

“I’m still winning and I’m just looking forward to tomorrow, I’m hoping for a strong finish.”

She now holds a two-shot lead, inching closer to clinching her second NSW Junior title.

“It feels pretty surreal and I’m a little nervous. I just have to wait until I’m finished tomorrow and keep it in mind and ignore the scores,” she added.

“I just can’t believe three days are already gone, it’s gone too fast.”

Michelle Bang sits in second place with a score of -2 after a solid one-under-par round of 73 today.

In third is Victorian Sophie Mann, who also posted a one-under-par round of 73, bringing her total to -1.

Over in the boys’ division, Jedd Brady continues to dominate. The 17-year-old shot a one-under-par round of 69 at Cabramatta, bringing his total score to -7.

“I think today was pretty difficult out there. It was definitely a battle. I think the key thing out there was being disciplined with those pin positions, cause there was a few today that were right on top of the slopes. You had to leave yourself uphill putts,” he said reflecting today’s game.

“I didn’t have as many putts drop as I would like but I think I played pretty solid and I was trying to have fun and commit to all my shots.”

With a comfortable six-shot lead heading into the final round, the Queenslander is remaining focused.

“I think the lead is irrelevant, I’m just going to try and got out tomorrow and play golf. After 18 holes we’ll see how we stand,” he added.

“This is obviously a new position for me, I haven’t been here before but I think it’s exciting to see how my game stacks up against the competition. There’s some really good players in the field.”

Behind Brady on a total of -1 is The Australian’s Harry Gourlay. The NSW Junior Boys state team member had an incredible six birdies on the front nine at Cabramatta today.

Tied for third are Ryde Parramatta’s Vidur Subramaniam and Queenslander Dujuan Snyman, both with a total score of +1.

The final round kicks off tomorrow morning at 7 AM, with the girls competing at Liverpool and the boys at Cabramatta.
