My plan tomorrow is to attack the fairways and greens. I’ll be aggressive. I don’t want to think too much as that will give me added pressure. I’ve to stay patient and stick to my game plan. It was very windy today but I managed to take the lead despite the challenging conditions. So that was nice. I know I’ll feel some pressure as the leader going into tomorrow’s final round but I hope I can calm myself down quickly.
Phachara Khongwatmai (Tha), Third round 69 (-3), Total 202 (-14)
I played well. But I hit a bad tee shot on 15. The ball went far right and went out of bounds. That was the only mistake I made all day so it’s not a bad performance and I’m happy. I’ll try my best tomorrow. I’m only two shots back and I still can catch up.
Jbe Kruger (Rsa), Third round 67 (-5), Total 203 (-13)
I started off really nicely, hitting it nicely but lost my momentum along the way. I misread lots of lines today. I’ll accept whatever comes my way tomorrow. If I’m meant to win, I’ll win. I played the best I could I’ve probably played. If the putts do not drop, there’s nothing I can do about it and I’ll just accept it.

I didn’t hit and putt the ball as well as compared to the last two days. The winds picked up in the afternoon which made play really challenging. There’s still another day left at this event and I’m looking forward to finishing off the week well. I want to win outside India and that’s my next goal. That’s my focus and I’ll try my best.
Koh Dengshan (Sgp), Third round 67 (-5), Total 206 (-10)
I started early today and got a little advantage as the winds didn’t really pick up. It only started blowing at the 10th hole and the front-nine was pretty calm. So there were lots of scoring opportunities for me. I hit the ball really well and putted well on the back-nine. I was a little shaky yesterday. It was tough in the afternoon yesterday because of the cross winds but making it into the weekend rounds was a huge relief. I need a good finish tomorrow to achieve my target of a top-10 finish here. I had a good break the last three weeks and managed to find time to work on my game, which has helped me this week.
