Teenage sensation Corey Lamb is now only one round away from securing the 2019 NSW Junior Championship thanks to a dominant display this afternoon.

The Branxton Golf Club member extended his lead at the Belmont Golf Course today thanks three-under par performance.

After the three rounds the youngster is now 13-under-par ahead of Queenslander Samuel Slater (-7) and Newcastle local Joshuaa Robards (-5).

It comes one week after Lamb conquered the Queensland crown while last month he also took out a second consecutive Singleton Open title over local talent Matt Dicks.

"When Corey played here he shot two over par to win off plus three and he said that Singleton was a tough track; that it was still hard to shoot a score on," Singleton Golf Club professional Les Bennett recalled.
