Defending Champion Sergio carded a bogey free second round -7 under par 64 to post -10 under at the top of the Andalucía Valderrama Masters leaderboard, and a four stroke advantage for the final round tomorrow;
“Every time you win is special, and every time you have a chance of winning is special.”
“We have a good shot tomorrow, but it’s not going to be an easy day at all, so we have to keep playing.”
“Obviously we would have loved the tournament to go to 72 holes but unfortunately we can’t control the weather and it’s been a little bit rough for us this week.”
“We tried to make the best decision possible and tomorrow we have to play hard.”
“You don’t expect to shoot this kind of score on this course, even with the conditions we had.”
“I did see a four or five under if you play well but it was one of those days when I struck the ball really, really well.”
“Every time I had to get up and down I did and I was very consistent throughout the whole day, which obviously makes a big difference.”
Ashley Chesters, England, has second place, four shots back at -6 under par, after his second round -1 under 70;
“There’s always a chance. There’s not a lot of pressure on me. I’ve had a decent year, I’ve got my card sorted and I’ve got the last few events to aim to get into if I can have a good week here.”
“I’ve not really got a lot to lose so I can have a go tomorrow and see what happens.”
“I’ll be playing with Sergio, who was always one of my favourite players when I was growing up.”
“I would imagine there will be quite a lot of Spanish people hoping he will win, so I would imagine it will be a bit different tomorrow.”
Alvaro Quiros and Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño, from Spain, and Marc Warren, Scotland, share third place at -4 under par.
No one in the World would give Sergio a four shot lead and expect to beat him.
