Marcus Kinhult of Sweden stays on top of the HNA Open de France on moving day at Le Golf National in Paris, France.
Marcus had a very good third round -4 under par 67 to lead the HNA Open de France after 54 holes of the third Rolex Series event of the season on the European Tour, and will take a two shot advantage into the final round tomorrow at -10 under;
“It was a bit of a shaky start but then I just hit some good shots and felt better and better throughout the round.”
“The momentum kind of kept me going in there so that’s good.”
“It’s going to be nerve-wracking, the first few holes at least. I felt the nerves today for sure, tomorrow is going to be the same I guess.”
“It’s a great opportunity. I’m just looking forward to the first tee and to get going again.”
Chris Wood of England also carded -4 under par 67 today, to stay in second place, two shots behind at -8 under par.
Chris was three over after five holes, and then picked it up;
“A lot of players might let that get to them, three over through five, but I felt like I was hitting pretty good shots.”
“A couple behind going into tomorrow. Same sort of approach and attitude tomorrow and see where it gets me.”
Sergio Garcia, the 2017 Masters Tournament winner from Spain, is in third place after a sensational third round -7 under 64, the low round of the day, to be on that number for the tournament, and is looking forward to tomorrow;
“The goal is to play as well as I did today.”
“I believe in what I’m doing and just have as much confidence as possible, like I was doing today. If I’m able to do that, I should have a good round.”
“It’s the kind of golf course that it’s testing you every single hole and you’ve got to stay very patient and very down-to-earth.”
“We need a round like this to get back into the middle of it, we’re probably going to need another pretty decent round tomorrow.”
