It was definitely very exciting out there. From the get-go, everything went well. I could read the line, I was striking it well, hitting the ball into places which I wanted to, so I’m very happy. I just going to stick to my game plan, play the way I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I’m happy with the way things are going and I’m looking forward to it. I was not very sure about the yardage and the last place you want to go on the greens be far away from the pin. I basically bailed out on that shot and left it to the right of the green and did not get a good up and down from there. I was always thinking of that magical 59. I hit a good putt on 16 but only managed a par. Unfortunately the wind turned on us on 18 so I couldn’t really go for it as it was out of reach. I would love to do that and give myself a chance.

I played really well today and I have no regrets. I played bogey-free and I’m feeling confident. The greens are hard and bumpy but I managed to do well. I’ll try my best tomorrow. I did that today and managed a good score. In golf, it’s never over until the last putt, so we’ll see.

I did not play. Though I did not hit as many greens as the first two days, my play was still fine. Unfortunately, two shots cost me a bogey each on fifth and 15th. I made a bogey from centre of the fairway on fifth, as the wind picked up just as I hit the ball and it slipped back and into the bunker. On the 15th, I went into the greenside bunker and my par putt caught the lip and spun out. The eagle was a nice feeling on par-14th. I hit driver and 4-Iron to around seven-eight feet and holed it neatly. At some holes, I felt I may have left myself short but generally I made those crucial par putts except in two cases on fifth and 15th.
I started well with a birdie, but Shaun Norris was on fire. Whatever he did was perfect. He played superbly for his 11-under and he has a big lead over a few of us, who are 16-under.

First time I had an albatross. I knew I would reach the green but I didn’t realise I could hit it so close to the pin. Keeping the ball on the fairways was tough today but I managed to stay patient and my game really lifted off after that albatross where I had another two birdies
