Singapore, January 30: Read what leading contenders have to say following their third round at this week's SMBC Singapore Open.

It was a good finish today - today is a new day. Very frustrating Friday and Saturday rounds just not making right decisions. I am just rushing myself, trying to do too much and trying to think this golf course is going to yield an eight under like its nothing but it does not. So we are going to play the last round differently and take a lot of confidence off the finish today. (We are going to approach the final round) a bit differently. I have got to hit as many greens in regulation as possible, I just have not done that. When I say greens in regulation I am going to hit it on the correct tiers as much as possible. I have been out of too many holes this week to get anything going. All it takes is a little bit of a spark, a little confidence with my ball striking to make sure I have got that distance control down and the putting will come. The greens are fantastic. I actually think they are very easy to putt, tough where the pins are on different grain changes so it will mess you up a little bit if you are trying to read too much into them, otherwise they just putt very straight. I over-read a lot of putts at the start (of the tournament) and I am going to try and be a little bit more aggressive with my putter as I try to dial other stuff back to make sure I am in position. I will just go and rest (before I go back out). I have already eaten so I will probably not do that. Then go back out, hit a few balls and then come down and make sure I have my putting dialled in.

I played 31 holes today and to be honest, I was feeling tired towards the end of the round. I’m happy I managed to birdie 16 and 18 coming in as those birdies gave me that much-needed confidence boost for tomorrow. I started off really well with three birdies in first four holes but dropped a bogey on the fifth. After that, I couldn’t find those birdie opportunities and was glad they finally came again on 16 and 18. I’ll try my best tomorrow

It did not help me that much not having played this morning as I had to wait about a long time for my tee off. I have had many second place finishes in Japan and Korea but I do not think that will affect me (mentally) tomorrow.  It would be great to win here and that’s my aim.
