Federal club champion Adam Robinson will put the security of his job at the AIS behind him in his quest to make it as a professional golfer.
Robinson is tied fifth in the Federal Amateur Open Championship, which will be his final amateur tournament before turning pro on Monday.
He'll do so with his Federal course record of nine-under 63 still intact – albeit sharing it with runaway leader Patrick Wilson, who sits seven shots clear at the top of the leaderboard on 16-under after matching the mark in the second round on Saturday.
Wilson has already past the Amateur Open record of 13-under over four rounds, but still has two rounds to play on Sunday.
He shot nine birdies and one eagle on the way to the mark Robinson set in the third round of the Federal club championship – his second in a row.
Robinson would love to run him down over the final two rounds before he looks to qualify for the Australasian tour and the Australian Open.
The 31-year-old is originally from Cooma and is currently working in security at the AIS.
But golf is his passion, which was why he came back to the game after two years away from it while working in Queensland.
"The Australian Open will be my first tournament with any luck, I've got to qualify for the Australian Open," Robinson said.
"Tour school is the main thing that I'm aiming for to get through there and get myself a tour card.
"I'll play around Australia next year as much as I can and then from there, hopefully, I'll have enough coin and head overseas."
Robinson said favourable conditions made him think his course record was there for the taking, but he's thankful Wilson could only equal the 63 he carded earlier this year.
"The way the course is playing the last two days I was very surprised someone didn't actually beat it," Robinson said.
"It was definitely a score that was out there and I'm just glad it wasn't beaten and only equalled.
"If I do come across [Wilson] I'll have a chat and shake his hand for not beating it."
The first of the two final rounds starts at 6.30am, with the final round to finish about 5pm on Sunday.
1. Patrick Wilson -16, 2. Cameron Haines -9, 3. Benjamin Eccles -8, 4. Kiran Day -7, 5. Adam Robinson, Ryan Ruffels, DJ Loypur, Nicholas Watts -6.
