Perth, February 27: Read what leading contenders have to say following their third round at this week's ISPS Handa Perth International.

Third Round Five-under-par 67, 15-under-par 201 Total
I lost a bit of concentration on 16 as I was worrying too much about where the pin position was.  Then on 17, I miscued my tee shot and left myself with an awkward little pitch shot. These things happen in golf.  As long as it's not happening when you're tied with the lead three holes to go, but luckily there's still a lot of holes left.

I was hoping to get one birdie either on 16 and 17 to close the gap.  It was unfortunate with that bogey on 18, but three back, anything could happen really.  I’m still in a good position for tomorrow and it’s alright.

This course suits my eyes because we have this kind of courses in France. I really like this kind of greens with lots of slope and trees.  It’s nice that I’m also playing well here.

“I was struggling in the initial holes but I managed to get my momentum back on my back-nine. I was talking to my caddy on the 14th tee box on whether I should go for the green or just lay up. His advice was that the worse-case scenario would be the ball landing up in the bunker. I managed to hit the ball well, carry it through the bunker and saw it landing on the green. I would be lying if I said I was not looking at the leaderboard. I got close to the leaders after making another birdie on 15 but dropped two shots in the last three holes which pegged me back. You never know, anything can happen tomorrow. If I putt well, I should be able to post a low score tomorrow. I’ve gained more confidence this week and I’m feeling really positive about myself
