Mark Leishman threw 70 and was 2 under, while Adam Scott with his old but new caddy Steve Williams hit 74 and was 1 under, 10 behind Smith.

Smith started the day one shot behind Scrivener, but an hour later he was two shots ahead thanks to a two-shot backswing on the fourth hole.

Smith scored second and then went to par-3 four a meter from the flag while Scrivener was unable to get up and down from the bunker.

The two-time Australian PGA winner then hit the sixth and seventh holes to build a four-stroke lead before making a scarecrow at the ninth when he clipped his shot. Smith recovered to the fairway, hit his third shot into a deep green bunker, and then missed with a parity shot.

Scrivener made three shots into the top nine as his first title run since 2017 stalled.
