#IMGOLF17 – Rd 3 what they said

Justin Rose (ENG) – Third Round 66 (-6) Total 197 (-19)

I’m happy with the way I played and obviously I started well with a birdie which kept the momentum going. It was solid all around, good work and I’m still in the lead. Scott Vincent played well alongside me today but I’m in a good position to finish it off. The weather looks like it’s going to cooperate today. I’m going to have a quick break, stay loose, stay focused and carry on from there.

I have been playing really nicely and I just want to keep this momentum going and just try and. Really cool to play with Kiradech and Justin and I am learning so much already. So, I am just trying to be in the moment and try and win a golf tournament. I can be a little bit more aggressive but the game still doesn’t change. You got to hit good quality shots. I am glad this delay came because I have not been hitting it very good today and I need to go back and regroup and get some rest so I can charge tomorrow. I love having my wife (Kelsey) caddy for me, it has been a lot of fun she’s learning and I’m learning and it has been a cool partnership so hopefully we can end on the right note.

I got a back injury from last two weeks. My back feels stiff after waking up. I couldn’t swing it well and I shot one-under after eight holes. It is good for me to take a rest but it will depend on how I feel after I wake up. This suspension can be good and bad for me. It will depend how I feel tomorrow. There are 10 more holes to catch Justin Rose. I really need to bring out my A-Game because I don’t know how the weather will be like. In my mind, I’m going to play like it is 54 holes.I know I need to finish inside the top-five this week to move inside the top-50 in the world but a top-three result is my goal. That will make sure I’m 100% in. I’m very comfortable with my swing but I’m worried about my back. I want to play without thinking that an injury will stop me. I will do a lot of stretching in my room and try to keep my back safe and go out with a really low score tomorrow.
