Sergio, has his girlfriend Katharina Boehm caddying for him, with these kind of performances maybe she should get the job permanently;
“It was great obviously to be able to go out there and shoot 65 again I played nicely and felt pretty comfortable. I was able to hit some really nice shots and then was able to roll two or three really good putts in and it was nice to be able to finish birdie, birdie on this difficult finishing stretch. Not only Henrik, there’re probably five or six guys who can shoot a really good number. It’s going to be exciting tomorrow. I’ll just try to do the same things I’ve been doing and stay focused, stay patient and hopefully I’ll be able to play well enough to win. “I want to try to be as aggressive as possible. I want to still try to make as many birdies as I can and if I manage to do that, then I’m going to put it quite difficult to the rest. I think if I start getting a little defensive, then I can give them a good opportunity of catching me.”
Tied in second place are Anirban Lahiri and Henrik Stenson, at -14 under par.
The Indian rising star Anirban is happy to be in the zone;
“I’m just going out there and play and I’m happy that I’m in a zone where I can play and not think about shots. Sergio is running away with it, so I’m glad I’m still within touching distance. I can’t really go into tomorrow expecting anything. I just want to play solid.”
Henrik enjoyed his day;
“That was a good day, it was definitely the best I played this week. Made some good birdies and some really good saves to keep the momentum going, those were crucial. Even though I’m tired and worn out, as soon as you see your name on the leaderboard, all of a sudden that tiredness goes away and you’re looking forward to be there and hopefully have a chance to win. I know Sergio is desperate to get his hands on a trophy but I’ll try to challenge him.”
