Hideki had a -4 under par 68 third round at the WGC HSBC Champions, giving him a 54 hole total of -17 under par, and a three shot advantage going into the final round tomorrow;

“The first two days, making lots of birdies, it’s a lot of fun.”

“But today, when you’re in a position to win, playing smart and making no bogeys was very satisfying to me today.”

“Everyone is so good. I know I’m going to have to make some birdies. But I think the key for tomorrow’s round will be not making any bogeys.”

Nearest challenger is defending champion Russell Knox, on -14 under par for the tournament, he also carded -4 under 68 today;

“I’m not going to give up my title without a big fight tomorrow.”

“I look forward to every minute tomorrow and see what happens.

Daniel Berger is in third place at -13 under, following his third round -5 under par 67.

It looks like Hideki should cruise to the title, considering the form he is in, a three shot lead is a massive advantage,

World number three Rory McIlroy is back at -9 under par, a -2 under 70 today not good enough to keep in touch with Hideki. Rory is now eight shots off the pace, but in the top ten. I expect him to improve on that position tomorrow.
