Cameron shot a third round -5 under par 67 to take control of the Australian PGA Championship with a -14 under par total for the 54 holes at Royal Pines Resort;
“The last year I’ve been playing some really good golf.”
“Probably over the last three days has been some of the best golf I think I’ve played both mentally and pulling off the shots.”
“I’m feeling really confident and looking forward to tomorrow.”
“I did a really good job today when I was out of position, just taking less risks and putting myself into the center of the greens and taking a par.”
“It’s what you have to do around here.”
“There’s plenty of birdie opportunities out there and that’s what you have to realise and I did a good job of that.”
Marc Leishman carded -3 under 68 to post -11 under for the tournament, and sits alone in second place;
“That’s the best I’ve played all week and the worst score.”
“A couple of bad breaks and a few putts where I hit good putts and they didn’t go in, which happens occasionally.”
“I’m happy with the day. It puts me a few more back than I would like to be but it’s going to be tough tomorrow.”
“I hear the wind is going to get up so that gives me a bit more of a chance.”
The wind will not help anyone else, next nearest are at -7 under par, Matthew Millar, -5 under 67 today, equaling the low round of the day, and Harold Varner 111 from the USA, with -1 under 71 for his third round, and a share of third place.
