Blyth with four-shot lead at NSW Open golf

A change of caddie hasn't slowed Adam Blyth's march towards the NSW Open golf title.

Blyth remains in firm control heading into the final round at Sydney's Stonecutters Ridge after carding a sizzling 66 to surge to 22-under-par for the championship and a four-stroke lead.

Chasing the biggest pay day of his career, 35-year-old Blyth continued his onslaught on Saturday with another seven birdies.

"It was tough out there today. It was strange to get a score like that - and satisfying, though," he said.

After seizing control of the tournament with his girlfriend Nicole carrying his bags over the opening two days, Blyth's father Stephen flew into town to assume caddying duties for the weekend.

It made no difference, with Blyth's chasers unable to make up any ground on the runaway leader.

Victorian Peter Wilson has sole possession of second place at 18 under after returning a third-round 67, with New South Welshman Rhein Gibson a further shot back after shooting the same score.

Robert Allenby produced his best round of the tournament - a 66 to match the leader - but will enter the final round 10 shots adrift in a tie for 16th.
