Those who didn’t finish their third rounds will need to come back tomorrow morning to complete their rounds, then head back to complete their final rounds to see who will be crowned the latest Jennian Homes Charles Tour champion.

Currently, Woonchul Na leads through 45-holes at 12-under to lead by one over Sam Jones. Kazuma Kobori is two shots back at ten under, with a further four golfers within five shots of Na’s lead.

The Auckland-based professional is four under on moving day after birdies at one, six, seven, and nine.

Jones is also four under after a couple of birdies at one and nine and an eagle at seven.

Both have been bridesmaids in several Jennian Homes Charles Tour events before, with Na coming second in 2019.

He says it was a tough day in the rain but is excited for a long, challenging day tomorrow.

“The rain wasn’t affecting me too much; I was just trying to stay as dry as possible and focus on my on my own game.”

“Playing 27 holes tomorrow wasn’t what I was expecting at the start of the week, but I’ll get a good night’s sleep, stick to my gameplan and hope for a good result.”

Na is looking for a victory tomorrow, so he heads to Korean and Asian Tour Q-School boasting some winning energy.

“I still haven’t got one yet, but I feel very confident. I feel like I can win these big events, and it will be a big confidence booster before I head away in a couple of weeks.”

He’ll need to hold off the in-form amateur, Jones, who is also riding high on confidence after a couple of second-place finishes in Jennian Homes Charles Tour event this year.

Jones needed to come out early this morning to complete his second round and birdies three of his last four to shoot five under.

He came out the gates quickly in his rain-disrupted third round and like Na, thrived in the rain this afternoon.

“It was a bit more of the same this afternoon; I hit the ball nicely and managed to roll a couple of nice ones in.

“I’m going to go out and play when I’m told to play and see what happens tomorrow.”

A victory tomorrow would also mean the world to Jones, who came second at last week’s Christies Floorings Mount Open and the Renaissance Brewing New Zealand Stroke Play in April.

“It would be awesome. I’ve had a couple of second places, and I just need to keep putting myself in those positions, and I’m sure I will get one over the line.”

Play will commence tomorrow morning at 7.30, with players to start their fourth round soon after in the same groups.
