Marc, -2 under 69 today has led the AT&T Byron Nelson for three rounds, he now has company at the top in the form of rookie Aaron, -3 under 68, for the final round tomorrow, both players at -17 under par for the tournament.
Rookie Aaron has a real chance to win here;
“Going out today, I felt like I had expectations which is crazy because I’ve only been there once before.”
“I felt like I expected a little bit more of myself. I put a little too much pressure on myself early. Taking that aside, I did great at the back nine and finished at three under which is great today.”
“Knowing that I’ve been there and that I’ve played well, that was a really cool setting around Quail Hollow with so many people.”
“For me to perform some of the shots I did and play as well as I did down the stretch, just a lot of confidence it gives me going into tomorrow and playing this course.”
“The courses are totally different, but the pressure will be kind of the same. Now that I’ve been there, I think I’ll have a better chance at it.”
Marc mentioned the different conditions today;
“Very different conditions today than what it was Thursday afternoon.”
“And the course is turning out a lot windier.”
“Different situations, a few more people out there today.”
“Really. really happy with the way I fought back after a slow start.”
The two leaders have a four shot advantage over their nearest rivals, Matt Jones, Australia, -3 under 68 in his third round, and Kevin Na, USA, who carded -2 under 69 today.
