NEW Zealand's Michael Hendry will take a one-shot lead into tomorrow's final round of the Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship following a see-sawing battle at City Golf Club today.

Hendry shot his second score of six-under-par 62 for the tournament to move to -14 after three rounds.

Brad Kennedy and David McKendrick are breathing down his neck at -13.

Kennedy, one of four co-leaders at the start of play, finished three-under for the day.

McKendrick was one of day's big movers with his 62 backing up his Friday score of 61 to motor him up the leaderboard.

Nine players go into tomorrow's chamionship day with only four shots between them.

Rohan Blizard (-4) sits on 12-under, while Matt Giles (-2) and Anthony Summers are poised on -11.

Tom Bond (-6), amateur Cameron Smith (even), and Adam Bland (-7) also remain in contention at 10-under.

Bland produced the day's lowest round after starting in sensational fashion.

The South Australian's seven-under-par score on his opening nine included an eagle on the 10th and a hole-in-one on the par three 17th.

His final score of 62 helped rocket him from equal 36th overnight into a tie for seventh

Bland's fellow South Australian Jason Norris who started the day in a tie for fourth started his round with a double-bogey and never recovered on his way to a four-over 72.

He slipped from to equal 25 th on six-under-par and out of contention.

Toowoomba professionals Ian Esson and Andrew Tschudin are also out of the major money running, back on -3 and -2 respectively.

Play restarts at 9am tomorrow.

Hendry, Kennedy and McKendrick begin their rounds on the first tee at 11am.

Spectator entry to the course is free.
