ANTHONY Boyd is a handy amateur golfer, but could not believe how pro golfer Blair Riordan was playing yesterday at the Calliope Golf Club.

Playing in the South Great Barrier Reef Port Curtis Classic, Boyd teamed up with Riordan on the third day of the competition.

"I'm playing to my handicap, but he is shooting his lights out," Boyd said after walking off the 18th in the morning shotgun round.

"It's unbelievable I've never seen anything like it."

Riordan was 25th with one over, 10 shots behind leader Matthew Millar. After the first two rounds at Gladstone Golf Club on Monday and Boyne Tannum Golf Club on Tuesday he didn't give himself much of a chance.

"He is 10 under and has given himself a chance," Boyd said.

"He's got two eagles and could get another one before our round finishes."

Riordan finished the day with a round of 63 and ended on eight under in seventh position.

Millar continued his good form with a round of 65 to win by five strokes ahead of Blake McGrory and Damien Jordan.
