Jonas, Sweden and Cameron, Australia, are cruising on top of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans leaderboard at -19 under par, after shooting -4 under 68 in Saturday’s Foursomes format, giving them a four shot advantage going into the final round tomorrow.
Jonas is still receiving stick about how well they get along;
“I do think that Australians and Swedes kind of get along pretty well together.”
“We have the same mindset. There’s a lot of sarcasm out there, and a lot of fun stuff going on.”
“I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, just being out there with Cameron, it’s just fun.”
“It’s like going back to playing as a kid. You just go out there and have fun and try to make birdies. I don’t feel like there’s any stress at all out there and there’s no pressure.”
Cameron is full of praise for his partner;
“I feel very comfortable going into tomorrow.”
“Jonas is playing well, so it’s just like having a backup.”
“If you have a bit of a bad hole, then Jonas is going to get away with a birdie or a par. It just frees you up.”
Tied in second place, one shot back with tournament totals of -15 under par are the teams of Charley Hoffman / Nick Watney, -3 under 69 today, and Kevin Kisner / Scott Brown, who were -5 under 67 today.
At -14 under, in fourth place, with -2 under 70, are Jordan Spieth / Ryan Palmer, they suffered with poor putting today, Jordan missing one from 3 feet, he commented;
“It’s very difficult out here with these grainy greens when you get the wind going one way and the grain the other.”
“So, even on a 6-footer, you’re trying to figure out exactly where you want to hit it and get comfortable.”
