Thomas Aiken, South Africa and Paul Waring of England share the lead in the Nordea Masters at Hills Golf Club in Sweden.
Paul, -1 under 69 today and Thomas with a third round -3 under par 67 share the 54 hole lead in the Nordea Masters with -12 under par totals, and will take a three shot advantage into the final round tomorrow.
Thomas, given the windy conditions would have taken a 67 at the start of play today;
“The conditions were a little tougher today the wind was up from the last two days and swirling as usual.”
“I started off really playing well and kept it going.”
“Unfortunately, it didn’t finish quite the way I would have wanted to but I was giving everything a go and trying to push and stretch those scores out.”
“If you told me I was going to shoot 67 at the beginning of the day I would have taken it. I’m in a nice position going into tomorrow so it should be fun.”
Paul spoke about the space between his ears;
“It’s not always a technical thing for me, I’ve had a bit of an issue between the ears, shall we say.”
I just get in my own way a little bit. I feel like I’m moving past that point a little bit better and I’ll keep getting better the more often I put myself in this position.”
“There are still 18 holes of golf to play so I’m not getting too carried away, there’s still a big job to do.”
“I know Thomas quite well, played with him a few times. He’s a good player and knows how to win. Last group on a Sunday, it’s all you can ask for.”
Thorbjørn Olesen, Denmark, -3 under 67 today and 2006 champion Marc Warren, Scotland with -4 under 66 were three shots off the lead at -9 under tied in third place.
