Scott carded a third round -2 under par 70, in very windy conditions, to top the True Thailand Classic leaderboard at -14 under par, and will take a two shot lead into the final round tomorrow;

“It’s just another round of golf for me tomorrow, it’s a long season.”

“We practice for a result, we practice to try and get a win, we try to get ourselves in this position to have a win. If you’re not in this position, you get upset with yourself.”

“When you’re actually here, you’ve got to try to enjoy it and embrace it.”

“It’s not very often you get a chance to lead a tournament on a Saturday night, let alone on a Sunday.”

“It was a good grind. Out of ten, I felt like two out of ten, felt really tired, no energy.”

“I knew it was going to be a tough day, very windy, so I’m very pleased.”

American Peter Uihlein is in second place, a -3 under par 69 today kept him in touch with the leader with his -12 under total.

In third place are Thomas Pieters, from Belgium, who  mastered the windy conditions,  recording a -6 under par 66, posting a -11 under par total, alongside Swede Pelle Edberg, who finished birdie-birdie in a round of +1 over par 73.

Frenchman Benjamin Hebert, with a third round -2 under 70, American David Lipsky -1 under 71, and South African Shaun Norris, -1 under 71, he still uses a long putter, but apparently does not anchor it against his chest, these players are at -10 under.

The best placed home players are Thai pair Prom Meesawat -3 under 69 today and Panuphol Pittayarat, +2 over 74, sharing that place with Scot Simon Yates, who actually lives in a house on the course, these guys are at -9 under par.
