JUST one shot separates the top two ladies as the Bargara Golf Classic heads into the final round today.

After leading on Day 1 by one shot, with a 76, Ashleigh McCourt (Nudgee) maintained her lead over the field in excellent conditions at Bargara yesterday.

McCourt would shoot a 77 to remain in the lead by one stroke over Trudi Petrie (Rockhampton), who closed the gap with a 76.

With defending champion, Cheryl Sternberg (Laidley), six shots behind in third it looks to be a battle between McCourt and Petrie for the win.

"The course was great, and the wind wasn't strong, which was nice," McCourt said.

"I thought I played well today but struggled with my putting as the shots didn't go in."

With both McCourt and Petrie to play together in the final round, Ashleigh is focussed on her own game.

"I'm a little nervous because Trudi is a former professional," she said.

"My goal is to focus on my own game, get my shots right, and get the win."

The final round of the Bargara Classic will start this morning.
