SEVEN MILE BEACH, Tasmania — Austin Bautista needed a solid third round to get into contention for the fourth and final day at the 72-hole Tasmanian Open Amateur Championship. He carded a 69 on Saturday while second-round leader Anthony Quayle shot 72.

The two will head to Sunday with a share of a two-shot lead over Blake Winfred, who also shot 69 on Saturday.

Bautista is coming off a runner-up finish at last week's Avondale Amateur Medal, which was won in runaway fashion by Harrison Endycott.

Royal Hobert Golf Club on the island of Tasmania has been playing difficult as just six players are within eight shots of the lead.
