Andrew Dodt holds one shot lead going into final round of PGA Championship

• Australian shoots round of 68 to lead Branden Grace after round three
• Windy conditions ensured no player had a bogey-free round at Wentworth

Moving day was all about trying to stand still at the BMW PGA Championship on Saturday for the majority of the field, when the wind got up after two sweltering, airless days and self preservation became more of an issue on a day when not one of the 66-man field enjoyed a bogey-free round.

Andrew Dodt of Australia, a Queenslander who lives in Newcastle NSW, was the most successful in the afternoon and produced a four-under 68 to add to his pair of 70s and hold the lead at eight under. He said he has been working on the mental side of his game and did not realise how well he had done until he added it up at the end, but he will go out in Sunday’s last pairing with Branden Grace of South Africa, who started at five under, held the outright lead at one point, and signed for a 70 and seven under.
