Australia’s Jason Scrivener is still in touch of the leaders at the Volvo China Open at the Topwin Golf Club in Beijing but his third round of 71 on a day which yielded many low scores has seen him slip to a share of 12th position and three shots from the lead.

Scrivener, who began the day in a share of second position and just one behind the lead, did not do a lot wrong today but with scoring as hot as it was even an under-par round was hardly enough to keep pace.

Scrivener will start tomorrow chasing a large group of players and with 18 players including himself within three shots of the lead he has a task to not only perform to his best but to rely on some help from others to advance his cause.

36-hole leader, Matt Wallace of England and Spain’s Adrian Otaegui lead the event at 12 under par one ahead of Spain’s Jorge Campillo, Frenchman Julian Guerrier and Swede Alexander Bjork.

Jason Norris too played well although he found if hard to repeat the heroics of his brilliant 64 yesterday but he is just four shots from the lead after a round of 70 and if he can find a way to repeat the brilliance he displayed on Friday he can’t yet be counted out.

Andrew Dodt and Ryan Fox are tied for 35th, Marcus Fraser is 38th.
