It's hard to imagine something like this happening these days given people's obsession with screens. We might not be so quick to stare at our phone next time we travel

Both Stephanie Meadow and Leona Maguire will retain faint hopes of a title challenge and remain right in the hunt for a great week ahead of the final round of the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia.

The Beach Course at 13th Beach Club showed its teeth as swirling winds made playing very difficult for players on moving day.

Only one player – South Korean So Yeon Ryu – managed to break 70 on a day that saw her compatriot, Ayean Cho take the leading reins at 12-under par with Swede Madelene Sagstrom a shot back in second and Canadian Alena Sharp one shot further adrift in third.

Jordanstown’s Meadow is Ireland’s nearest challenger at six-under par after she ground out a two-over par 74.

Meadow managed three birdies amongst five dropped shots – needing 30 putts – but finds herself in tied 8th as she looks to deliver a big week in the books so early in the season.

Rookie Maguire is another who’ll hope to bank a big finish this week too. With Irish Olympic hero Sonia O’Sullivan for company for much of her third round, Maguire traded two birdies and four bogeys in a 74 to sit just one shot adrift of Meadow at five-under par – just outside the top-10.
