NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 24/09/2016

Luke Toomey's 66 has kept New Zealand in contention for a prominent finish at the Eisenhower Trophy men's amateur team golf tournament in Mexico.

Toomey played comfortably his best golf of the tournament in the third round at Riviera Maya, with his six-under round helping the Kiwis climb four places overall to seventh.

They are level on seven-under with Norway, Thailand and Spain at the 71-nation event and are just five strokes behind second-placed Ireland.

Nobody will catch runaway leaders Australia, who are 32-under.

New Zealand's second counting score at the Iberostar Playa Paraiso course on Friday was 72 from Nick Voke. Ryan Chisnall played the non-counting round for a third successive day, shooting 76.

US-based Voke slipped nine places to 14th in the individual standings while Toomey has climbed to 17th, one stroke behind his team-mate on five-under.

Australians dominate the individual standings, with leader Cameron Davis on 14-under, two clear of Curtis Luck.
