VICTORIAN professional David McEndrick is the mid-afternoon leader on a day of fluctuating fortunes during round three of the Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship at City Golf Club.

McKendrick had a round of -7 going through 15 holes to place him at 12-under par for the tournament.

He held a one-shot lead over a trio of players including overnight co-leader Brad Kennedy who was -2 for the day after 13 holes.

Sitting with Kennedy on -12 were Matt Giles who was three-under for the day and Michael Hendry at four under.

Both had played 15 holes.

One of the day's best rounds belonged to Tom Bond who returned a six-under 62 to leap-from into a tie for sixth.

Adam Bland started the day 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 sixth.

New Zealander Pieter Zwart also grabbed a share of sixth after firing 62 as well.

Amateur pair Cameron Smith and Kevin Marque, who shared the lead, at the start of the have had mixed fortunes today.

Smith remained level with the card after 13 holes to remain on -10 with Marques two-over through 13 to slip back to -8.

Another co-lead at the start of the day, Jason Norris, was struggling today at three-over in his round.

Tomorrow's final day's play start at 9am with the winner's presentation expected about 3.30pm.
