Dylan Frittelli, from South Africa, is flying high at the top of the Volvo China Open leaderboard, three shots clear of the field in China.
Dylan has pulled away from the chasing pack with a third round -8 under par 64 at the Volvo China Open, to give him a -19 under par total, and a three stroke lead going into the final round tomorrow at Topwin Golf & Country Club;
“The players out here are some of the best players in Europe and Asia so it’s tough to beat the other players in the field.”
“The emotions you go through and the feelings you have in competition coming down the stretch, those are all pretty similar whether it’s winning an amateur tournament or a professional tournament.”
“It’s the same type of feelings that you have to deal with, so hopefully I can contend well tomorrow and deal with those emotions.”
“I like to think I would keep the same game plan tomorrow and maybe adjust on the back nine depending on the situation.
“Pablo played great out there today as well, he’s not going to lie down, he is one of the toughest guys to get into a dog fight with on the European Tour.”
“So I’m definitely going to be wary of him tomorrow.”
Pablo Larrazábal from Spain, holds second place on his own at -16 under par, a third round -2 under par 70 saw him drop back from the leader, a couple of three putts not helping his cause;
“It looks like I’m going to play with Dylan again and if he plays as good as he did today then he is going to be unbeatable.”
At -12 under par in third place is Alex Levy from France, who struggled out on the course today, carding -1 under 71, and is now seven shots off the pace;
“It was a really difficult day, the conditions were very tough.”
“The putts didn’t drop today but it’s nice to be in this position.”
