Jim carded a third round -5 under par 65 to top the RBC Canadian Open leaderboard at -15 under par, a three shot lead going into the final round tomorrow. Today he said he just had fun, another bogey free round;
“For the most part of the day, I felt like I played really solid. I hit the ball well again. It was a fun round of golf, really.”
“Not really worrying about what position I’m in the golf tournament, not looking at the leaderboard too much, going out there and trying to attack the golf course the same way that I have the first three days will be key.”
” I noticed there aren’t many leaderboards on the course, that might be a good thing.”
Tim Clark is in second spot, three shots back at -12 under par for the tournament, a -6 under par 64 today helped his cause. His only PGA TOUR victory came at the 2010 PLAYERS Championship;
”It’s always great to get off to a good start, Saturdays are normally the toughest day to score on, so you dream of a start like that.”
“It’ll be great to be in the final group. Jim is a really tough competitor, and this course seems to fit into our sort of game. It’s an Open Championship. You need to hit fairways and greens, and that’s both of our strengths.”
“Right now I feel good and I am able to swing how I want to. Three months ago I started to hit the ball good again, but I just wasn’t scoring. Finally, the last few tournaments, I’ve started to score.”
Third place belongs to Kyle Stanley, a -2 under par round gave him a total of -10 under par for the competition, five shots off the lead.
Leading Canadian is Graham DeLaet, who is sharing fifth place at -8 under par, a long way from the guys at the top. It looks certain that the lack of a Canadian winner is set to continue, unless Graham can do something really special;
“Disappointing to three-putt the last, I really wanted to make that birdie and got over-aggressive. But it was a fun day. The crowds were amazing out there. Hopefully, I can do something special.”
