Sentosa, January 21: Read what players have to say following the third round of the SMBC Singapore Open on Saturday.
Tirawat Kaewsiribandit (Tha) – Third Round 66 (-5), Total 205 (-8)
It was a really nice birdie on the last.  I am very happy with how I finished. It wasn’t easy out there, especially with the rain. I was just relaxing with my friends in the clubhouse during the rain delay. I came out again to play, feeling confident after the suspension. I managed to keep to my game plan. I didn’t expect much because I only got in to the tournament on Thursday. I was really lucky. I will continue to stick to my game plan tomorrow and not think too much.
Phachara Khongwatmai (Tha)- Third Round 67 (-4), Total 205 (-8)
I’m glad I managed to finish the round as that would give me some extra rest for tomorrow. It was pretty tough out there with the rain but I’m happy to sink that last birdie to bring me to the top. I don’t want to think too far ahead because anything can happen on this golf course. I just want to stay in the present and stick to my game plan. If I get distracted, I’ll feel very nervous and things will not go my way.
Adam Scott (Aus)- Eight-under-par through 13 holes

Well, it’s one of those unfortunate days – stop and start, and kind of tricky conditions at the end there. The greens were obviously a different speed after all the rain. A little cooler, and rainy – the ball was not flying far, and the holes were playing long. So unfortunately I dropped a shot, but I’m still in the mix, so it’s not too bad. But I’m in good shape. Hopefully I can get some holes in tomorrow, and play some good golf. It’s where you want to be (his position on the leaderboard. If I can just play some good golf and finish this round off strong, then I’ll have my chances going into the last round.
