Nathan Holman (Aus) - Third Round 67 (-4), Total 202 (-12)
I got off to a good start today. I made two bogeys on the sixth and seventh but recovered with four birdies on the back nine which is nice. I hit the ball very well on the back nine. That was really the highlight today. I gave myself a lot of chances and holed a few putts there,” said Holman.
It’s been a good experience so far even though it’s golf and business as usual for me. It’s been very competitive here. I will give another shot tomorrow and hopefully I can do as well.

I putted better today. I’m very happy with my five-under. I’m feeling very confident and I will not think about finishing inside the top-40 to get my Asian Tour card again. My goal is to win this Qualifying! That is the best way to get my card back.
It was a great experience playing on the Asian Tour last year. I’m definitely a much better player compared to when I played in the Qualifying School for the first time last year. I will be glad if I can get back on the Asian Tour and try to play better again.
I lost a bit of confidence in the second half of the season. I was far from home and I was a bit home sick. It is not easy when you are playing in your first year. You do not know the course and the country. It felt like a new experience every week.
I felt better towards the end of the season and made a few cuts in the big events. I want to play in the Asian Tour again because now I know the courses better. If I can earn my Asian Tour then I will be ready to fight again.

Chikkarangappa. S (Ind) – Third Round 67 (-4), Total 209 (-5)
I needed this good round especially after making the cut on the border. I had to get one good round and I knew that it was coming because this golf course suits my eye. A couple of putts didn’t go in yesterday but I made sure that I kept my ball on the fairway.
I was aiming for a six-under but I’m one shot shy from that number because I bogeyed the last hole. However, I’m still happy with my round because there was a lot of wind blowing when I teed off.
Obviously, I’m feeling confident after today’s round. I always like to play under pressure. It will mean a lot to me to finish inside the top-40 so I will try to play my best under pressure.
Ye Jian-feng (Chn) - Third Round 69 (-2), Total 210 (-4)
I played consistently today and I had an eagle on the ninth hole in my front nine. It got windy towards the end and I missed a few putts. I think it’s still the same as the last two rounds. My putting has not been good. I’ll probably do better if my putting was good. I will have to work harder tomorrow since I’m on the bubble now.
I came here this week telling myself that I need to make the cut. I’m glad I’ve done it now. It’s my first time in four years! The other target I set for myself is to get two-under for each round but I haven’t achieved that. I hope to make up for what I’ve lost in the final
round tomorrow.

I accept my score of 72. It is not great but still manageable because I’m still in contention to finish inside the top-40. I played as an amateur last year but there’s really not much difference. However I’m better prepared and I know what to expect. The preparations that I’ve done made me a better player.
It has been a great experience for me after turning professional. I learnt that every shot matters. My strategy tomorrow is to stick to my game plan, stay in the present and stay positive. It is going to be a tough day so I just need to play without any expectations and do my best.
