PERTH - Australian aboriginal golfer Brody Ninyette took a one-shot third round lead as compatriot Brett Rumford narrowly missed out on the course record at the $2million Perth International at Lake Karrinyup on Saturday. In blustery showers, Ninyette fired a five-under par 67 to lead the co-sanctioned European tour event at eight-under 208 ahead of Rumford among a three-way share of second place. Ninyette, 26, and rated 1019 in the world, said he had relied on invaluable pointers from his caddy about how best to tackle the Perth course. “He’s been a member here for most of his junior golf career,” Ninyette said. “He reads the greens well and knows the course well.” Rumford shot a seven-under 65 on Saturday to be just one stroke adrift of Ninyette.–AFP
