“I’m so excited right now. I think I can’t sleep tonight.”

“I don’t remember how did I putt on the last three holes.”

“I just tried to make birdie  – I didn’t think about anything, I just putted.”

“It’s so exciting right now.”

Tied in third place were ENG Robert Rock -2 under par 70 today and  FRA Clément Berardo, +1 over par 73, both with -4 under par totals.

Overnight leader ENG Chris Hanson finished with a poor +3 over 75, and ITA Nino Bertasio, -2 under 70 today were tied in fifth position at -3 under par.
