Thorbjørn Olesen produced an outstanding third round to lead the ISPS Handa Perth International at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
Thorbjørn put together a third round -5 under par 67, to take a three shot lead into the final round of the ISPS Handa Perth International with a -16 under par total.
Thorbjørn warned his playing competitors that he would continue to play aggressively, amazingly he said he did not play well today;
“I tried to go out there and be aggressive like I did the first two days, but I didn’t have the game today.”
“I didn’t feel good, I was struggling out there. I made some great up and downs to keep it going.”
“It was a fight all the way through, but I still had fun and I was fighting all the way. Five under is a great score today.”
“It’s been a couple of years since I won, so definitely I’ll feel the nerves. I’ve been in contention in big tournaments and I know how it feels. But it’ll be great to get that victory, so it’ll definitely be on my mind.”
“I just want to be out there tomorrow, be aggressive, and have fun.”
“I think it gives you a lot of confidence when you’re there on Sunday and you know you played well because you’re in contention. I think you take that with you and bring it out on the course and keep believing in yourself.”
“In the end it’s just golf, it’s supposed to be fun to play. It’s work, but it’s great work. It’s a lot of fun to play. So if you hit a bad shot, you just have to step back and think about it.”
In second place and three shots back at -13 under par is Sihwan Kim, who had a -3 under par 69 round today. James Morrison followed Friday’s course record 63 with a 69 to move into third on -12 under, with Peter Uihlein a shot further back after carding the low round of the day a -7 under par 65.
