Ab Fab Alex Levy has a 4 shot lead to take into the final round of the BMW Masters at Lake Malaren Golf Club in China.
Alex carded a bogey free third round -9 under par 63, and his 54 hole total of -22 under par gives him a four shot cushion when he starts the final round on Sunday at the BMW Masters tournament.
Alex was proud to announce that he had played amazing golf today;
“I played amazing golf, I’m very surprised by myself.”
“I started well and made some early birdies and hit some amazing shots. I am very happy with the way I played golf today.”
“It’s nice to be in this position. It was pretty much the same when I won in China so I am going to enjoy the game tomorrow, do my best and see what happens.”
Jamie Donaldson is in second place, he posted an even better third round score than the leader, a -10 under par 62, which elevated him up the leaderboard with a -17 under par total.
He likes the course, and the Eagle he scored today on the 16th hole;
“Obviously the course suits my game, I’ve shot ten under before and I’ve done it today which is great. I got the ball rolling better on the greens which made a big difference and obviously that shot on 16 is a big bonus.”
“I had 142 (yards) to the flag, slightly uphill into the wind which was a soft nine iron and it came off spot on. Pitched just past the hole and spun back and went in. It’s quite a narrow entrance into that green from where I was but it pitched perfect and obviously is a bonus to see it go in.”
“I’ve been playing well for a few years now so things have been getting better each year. I’ve been improving and winning was just a matter of time.”
“Now it’s obviously to a point where I’m trying to win more than once in a year. Everything is a progression and I’m just working towards getting better and moving the goal posts.”
In third place is Marcel Siem, a -7 under par 65 today has given him a -17 under par total. Justin Rose shot a -8 under par 64, but is still seven shots adrift of the top of the leaderboard, he was quite surprised to be so far back;
“I think I’ve done my part but I didn’t bank on everyone else going as low as they are.”
“Obviously Mr Levy is going ridiculous out there right now. I would have thought I’d be in a bit better shape going into Sunday than I am, but every credit to the lads that are keeping it going out there.”
“If everything went my way today, five better is what I could have been. I missed probably five putts inside eight feet today and still shot eight under par. I had three eagle putts out there, so plenty of opportunities to go low.”
“Quite clearly there’s lots of birdies to be had out there and I don’t know if things are going to change tomorrow, I hear there’s a bit of wind coming in so that might spice things up.”
