Eddie shot -1 under 71 in the third round of the British Open to stay on top of the leaderboard at -9 under par, and will take a three shot advantage into the final round tomorrow.
Eddie would have liked to have holed some more putts today;
“It would have been nice to hole a couple of putts on the back nine for sure.”
“Give myself a bit more daylight.”
“But I’m confident that I can go out there tomorrow and shoot three, four under par and make everyone else’s life very difficult.”
“New position for me, first time I’ve ever gone out there with a three-shot lead on a Saturday so, to have maintained it, I would say is not a failure.”
“Looking back today, I did feel like I hit a lot of nice, solid shots. If I can achieve that tomorrow, I’ll be happy.”
Four players are tied in second place, those three shots back at -6 under par; Jordan Smith, England, -2 under 70 today, Alexander Björk, Sweden, -4 under 68, Julien Guerrier, France, -2 under 70 and Julian Suri, USA, with his third round of -3 under 69.
