#UBSHKOpen Rd 3 : What they said

S.S.P. Chawrasia (Ind), Third round 69 (-1), Total 200 (-10)

I missed a couple putts but still managed to finish one-under. So, I’m happy. There’s still one more round to go and I’m looking forward to it. To be honest, I thought someone would be able to catch me from behind simply because of my putting. There’s a little bit of pressure, but I can manage that. This course really suit for me, but somehow I’ve not been playing well here.  But finally this year, I’m leading.  So, quite happy. I think if I’m feeling nervous, the other players will also be nervous.  But I’m okay.  I’ve played under these kind of pressure before so I’m all right. 

Rafa Cabrera Bello (Esp) Third round 64 (-6), Total 201 (-9)

First day, I also played good. I just didn’t really get it going on the greens and I did get it going on the greens today.  I managed to hole some good putts. Hopefully this will give me a chance for tomorrow. I think I’m going to be within reach, so I do believe that I can win it for sure. The wind has made it much tougher.  Especially the first two days, it was very breezy.  Today I think the wind has dropped down a little bit, stayed a bit more consistent.  But the first and second round, they were very tough, very gusty and all over the place.

Wade Ormsby (Aus) Third round 65 (-5), Total 201 (-9)

It’s nice to have a strong day out there.  Made a few putts early to keep it going and played pretty solid through the middle there.  Didn’t quite hit it close enough at the end but all in all a good day. Sometimes after four weeks, you can be a bit rusty.  Had a bit of practise yesterday afternoon and got the ball striking more where I wanted it.  Hit some better shots today.  Yeah, I guess it resulted in a good score. I’ll just try and go and play my own game.  This place is always more or less the same, same kind of score wins.  Just got to keep yourself in the game and give yourself a chance.  I won’t be changing what I’m doing.

Poom Saksansin (Tha), Second round 68 (-2) Total 135 (-5)

I just make a lot of mistakes with my iron shot.  I’ve been hitting it good but sometimes I made bad decisions and sometimes it’s bad luck. If I want to play aggressive, it means I have to hole the putt and hit irons a lot better.  I’m five shots back and I think it’s a little bit too far off, but if I play well tomorrow, who knows?

Sergio Garcia (Esp) Third round 66 (-4) Total 206 (-4)

It should have been probably an easy 63.  But you know, it’s what it is.  I just haven’t felt comfortable all week for some reason, and still kind of dragging a little bit.  But you know, we’re trying, I guess. I made some nice putts.  Unfortunately I just missed a whole bunch coming in, good birdie opportunities.  Hopefully I can do a little bit more of that tomorrow, play, hit some good shots and hopefully feel a little better with the putter and see if we can post a really good round.
