Beau, -3 under par 9 today, was joined at the top of the Houston Open leaderboard by Poults who carded a bogey free -7 under 65, both players at -14 under par for the tournament.
Poults need to win here to get into the Masters next week, he reckons it’s not on his mind, he is just thinking of good putting;
“No, not thinking about it, not talking about it, I’m going to go out and have some fun tomorrow. There’s a lot of its and buts.”
“I’m in a funny position, right? I said to you guys I’ve got no expectations going out on the golf course.”
“I didn’t have any expectations, I just went out to play golf. I’m going to do exactly the same tomorrow regardless.”
“Just opened my shoulders slightly, I’ve been seeing my lines a lot easier and been rolling a few putts in.”
“So good golf has obviously been rewarded with rolling a few putts in.”
Beau will be nervous, but is comfortable with that;
“I’ll be nervous just like I always am.”
“I’ve learned at each stage of golf that I’ve played from junior golf to amateur golf to now playing professional golf that winning tournaments is difficult and it takes a level of comfortability to do that.”
Four guys are those two shots back at -12 under, Greg Chalmers, Australia, also -7 under 65 today, Emiliano Grillo, Argentina, -5 under 67, Kevin Tway, USA, -3 under 69, and Paul Dunne, Ireland with his third round of -3 under 69.
