PERTH, Australia --
The Swede, who is at 7-under 137, is two strokes clear of Ross Fisher, who had the lowest round of the day with a 67.
Needing a win to retain his European Tour card for next year, Hedblom says, "My golf is strange right now because I hit really good shots and some really poor shots. But my putting has been good. So it's great right now to be leading."
