GOLF: McLEAN COULD BAG AUSSIE DOUBLE.

ALASTAIR McLEAN from Kirkcaldy is set to caddie for a second straight Australian Masters champ after Adam Scott finished the third round a shot clear of the field in Melbourne.

Scott carded a three-under-par 69 on the Huntingdale course to finish on eight under and a stroke clear of fellow Aussie Gavin Coles.

Robert Allenby shot a 65 to move into contention at six under, one stroke ahead of Craig Parry, Steve Collins and Nick O'Hern as Australians packed the top of the leaderboard.

Bag man McLean called the clubs for Colin Montgomerie when the Scott emerged from the pack on the final day in February last year.

Leader Scott said: "I will need to putt a bit better on the last day because I am not going to win with 33 putts, which is what I had in that round.

"Hopefully I will putt better and win because along with the Australian Open, the Australian Masters is the one you want on your CV.

"I'm actually playing some great golf. I really feel like I'm hitting the ball well and have worked out a good way to get round this course.I'll just go and hit a few putts and hope for the best."

Nick Faldo carded a 67 and has left him lying seven shots off the pace.

Aussie Aaron Baddeley fired a course record of 64 to finish three-under.
