New Zealander Ben Camp­bell would certainly like to forget his third round of golf at the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course yesterday.

Campbell led after round two and looked untouchable at 11 under but swing of the club did not go his way yesterday.

“Yeah, like I don’t feel like I played anywhere near as bad as what I scored actually,” he said.

“I think I only made one putt out there. Yeah, it was a bit frustrat­ing.

“As I said yesterday, you just needed to kind of chip and putt your way around here and that’s exactly what I didn’t do today.”

“I just hit kind of two bad swings that really cost me, one on 16 and one on, I think it was like the 7th hole as well.

“But, like didn’t actually feel that bad.”

Campbell said he hit a bad drive down 17 and started getting frus­trated.

“I could have holed so many putts out there today, just nothing went in.

“Even on the last hole, we thought we had a great chance of going in and it just slid by.

“Today I could have easily holed six or seven putts just like that and been still well clear.”
