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.

In Gee completed her second round with a -5 under 66 score, to top the Kingsmill Championship leaderboard at -11 under par;

“I always happy to play here and see all the good people from here.”

“I really like to play here. Course is not too easy, so you need to think about percentages on the course.”

Austin Ernst, USA, a bogey free -6 under 65 today, and Nasa Hataoka, Japan, -5 under 66, share second place at -10 under par.

Austin likes the course, and had fun out there today;

“It was a lot of fun. I should do this more often.”

“My game has felt really good all year, it’s really just been a matter of cleaning a few things up.”

“You need to be a good ball-striker, you need to drive the ball well and good iron shots are a premium out here.”

 “Whatever it is about the place, I really like it.”

Jess Korda still has a chance to catch the leader, currently at -8 under par for the tournament, -2 under for the day through 14 holes.

With 60 players still needing to complete round two, the second round will resume on Saturday at 0730 while the third round will begin at 1030 using split tees.

Marc added a second round -5 under par 66 to his first round 61 to top the AT&T Byron Nelson leaderboard by one shot at -15 under par for the two rounds completed;

“It’s always tough to follow up a really low round with another good one.”

“I’ve just got to keep doing more of the same and keep giving myself chances.”

“So, happy to shoot five under today and just keep the momentum going.” 

Aaron Wise, USA,holds second place alone at -14 under par, shooting a second round -8 under par 63 in the windier afternoon conditions;

“You weren’t going to be able to ball strike this course to death today with how windy it was.” 

“There’s some holes that were just playing really, really short because the ball is bouncing and you’re downwind.”

“All of a sudden this bunker at 370 you can reach and it’s a bad spot to be in.” 

“It played tricky. Like the driveable hole, Keith, who I was playing with, hit 2-iron off the tee. It’s 300 to the front edge.”

“It’s tricky. But it’s tons of fun and I like that.” 

In third place on his own is Brian Gay, USAhe carded -9 under 62, in the calmer morning conditions, needing only 26 putts to post -13 under par for the competition;

 “I’ve been hitting the ball nice and my putting is my strong suit.”

“My putting has been down the last several tournaments. I’ve been kind of waiting on one of these days.”

Jess said she told her coach she had ball striking problems;

“My coach was like, well you have two weeks to figure it out.“

“I was like, gee thanks.”

“I felt good, I stuck to my process. I’m working on a couple of things before the U.S. Open so just stuck to that and it worked.”

“You knew if the wind wasn’t blowing and the greens were soft could be really aggressive.”

“I just needed some birdies to drop, and that’s exactly what happened.” 

Annie was putting really well;

“I was hitting it well, putting it pretty well.”

“I was struggling reading putts mid-round but I started to roll some putts in, so it was a good day.” 

“It’s always been a great golf course, great conditions, ever since I was in junior golf.”

“It’s in my memories, I personally enjoy playing this golf course.”

Jaye is happy to be on top;

“I think I only missed one green today, so I had a lot of opportunities for birdie and I made seven of them, so that’s good.”

“It feels good to be on top, I mean, there is so much golf left, but I like my position.”

Marc carded a first round -10 under par 61 to lead the AT&T Byron Nelson by three shots and obviously likes the new course, especially with a hot putter;

” When I got here and saw instantly, you know, was happy that we’re here and it’s just a cool spot.”

“It was certainly one of the best driving days I’ve had, I hit everything, every fairway, and that’s important around here.”

“The fairways are generous, but you still have to hit them.”

“My iron play was great and then didn’t feel like I was having to hit too many chip shots.”

The putter was hot, so that combination is a nice way to start the tournament and shoot a low round.”

Sharing second place at -7 under par are J.J. Spaun and Jimmy Walker.

Jimmy is happy to be feeling fine once again;

“It’s a huge factor. I feel good.”

“It’s a hard enough game as it is. You don’t want to feel bad when you’re out playing golf, or feel sick or injured or weak. And that’s just kind of how I was.”

“Last week was great. A big week for me, especially with what’s been going on.”

“I feel a lot better now. Golf game seems like it’s coming back. Last week was huge, a big week. Lots of smiles.”

Webb carded a double bogey six at the last hole, but still won The Players comfortably by four shots, a last round +1 over par 73 giving him a -18 under total, a four shot winning margin;

“It’s been a long time. We did it,”

“It was tough, being in that position is a lot harder than I thought.”

“You always want to be leading going into the final round. You would think leading by seven is great, but it’s hard to stay motivated to continue doing what you’ve been doing.”

Three players then tied in second place at -14 under par, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele, USA, both with final rounds of -5 under par 67, they were joined by Charl Schwartzel from South Africa, who also had a -5 under last round.
