He thought about playing the Web.com Tour Finals and hasn't entirely ruled it out, though he skipped the first event and is not entered in the second.

SYDNEY (AP) — Former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Australian Open after soaring up the leaderboard with an 8-under 64 in Saturday’s third round.

Ogilivy, who ended the day with an 11-under tally of 205, faces a tough last round at Royal Sydney in which he will be hotly pursued by a chasing pack which includes American star Jordan Speith and his Australian compatriots Aaron Baddeley and Rod Pampling.

Two-time champion Baddeley, former world No. 1 Spieth and New Zealander Ryan Fox will go into the last round tied at 9-under, two shots behind Ogilvy, while Pampling is a shot further back at 208 — 8-under after 54 holes.

Baddeley had a 5-under 67 Saturday, while Spieth shot a 4-under 68.
