Lizette had a chance to win in regulation, but missed the putt;

 “I played better than what I expected, obviously. It just shows that I’m a fighter, I don’t give up.”

“I wasn’t intimidated by my playing partners hitting it past me. I knew my game would speak for itself.” 

 “I stuck with positives; I stuck with my game plan, and a couple putts could have dropped, but you just got to roll it.”

 “It didn’t drop, and it wasn’t my time. So just got to go back to work and have a week off to stay with my family.”

Amy Yang, South Korea, was third at -22 under par, one shot short of the play-off, with a last round -3 under 69.

“It feels like it’s all worth it.”

“I’ve had a couple of operations along the way and it’s nice to finally have got to this point. I’m sure that everyone back home will be absolutely thrilled for me.”

“This is all for everyone back home as well.”

Thomas had problems with the putter, he said the ball would not go in the hole;

“There are a lot of positive things to take to the next few weeks.”

“Playing with a top world ranked player, Sung Hyun, I knew I had to bring my A-game.

“And I was in the groove from the get-go. I had a great mentality going in.”

“I have been striking the ball really well, and I just had to stay patient.”

“And yeah, putts dropped, for sure. And be aggressive throughout the whole day.”

“And I just really felt comfortable. I like the golf course. I like the way I’ve been playing, so I felt really good.” 

 “Two shots are practically nothing. So, I’ve got good players behind me and just got to play my game.”

Sung Hyun Park, -6 under 66, and Amy Yang, -7 under 65, both from South Korea, have -19 under par tournament totals.

Lexi Thompson, USA, the defending Champion carded a bogey free -8 under par 64 to claim fourth place alone at -16 under par, with good putting being the key;

“I started off with a birdie, and just overall struck it very well, and kind of figured out my putting.”

“Probably helped that I putted in the sunlight and not in the dark this morning.” 

” I hit it great; I made some really good putts.” 

“I’m really looking forward to tomorrow.”

“Hopefully just go into it and hit it the same way I did these last few days, and still, have a few of those;  more putts drop, so we’ll see where it goes.”

Sneds has completed 7 holes of his third round, for -2 under, and still leads the Wyndham Championship with a total of -16 under par, a three shot advantage over the field;

“If I get to 22 under par, I think it’s hard for other guys to get there.”

“I’m not saying it can’t happen, but that number seems to hold up here pretty well.”

“Once you post a number here, it rarely stays because there’s so many opportunities the last four, five holes.”

“So I think it’s a huge advantage being in the lead or in the last group so that you know what you have to do and kind of set a marker for what needs to be done.”

“So par, if it was going to be a tough day tomorrow. It would be a totally different scenario where you’d want to post a score early and just see if it holds up.”

“Tomorrow, I think you want as many holes as possible.”

Brian Gay has second place to himself at -12 under, he is -6 under for twelve holes today;

 “I played great yesterday and continued more of the same today, unfortunate to get called in.”

“I didn’t play particularly well at the PGA last week, so I kind of made the decision to come here and just keep playing going into the Playoffs and hopefully get some more points.”

Tied in third place at -12 under par are;  Trey Mullinax, -4 under through 12 holes today, Keith Mitchell, -3 under through 8 and D.A. Points even par for his six completed third round holes, these three from the USA. They are joined  by C.T. Pan from Taipei, with his -1 under after seven holes.

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.

Sneds had his lead cut to two shots after carding a second round -3 under 67, but he still tops the Wyndham Championship leaderboard with a -14 under par total.

Brandt said the 59 was on his mind, people kept reminding him of it;

“You hear people telling you every two seconds, `Mr. 59,’ or saying how cool it was to watch it.”

“So, yes, totally on your mind.”

“You can’t ignore it, you can’t try to forget about it.”

“Hardest thing is trying to get back into a rhythm.”

“Now I’m better equipped for the next time I shoot 59 and play the next day.”

Second place belongs to D.A. Points, shooting -6 under 64 in his second round, giving him a -12 under par tournament total.

“Basically, I know this is possibly my last event of the year, so I haven’t been grinding really hard.”

“It seems to be paying off.”

C.T. Pan from Taipei, is third, also carding a second round -6 under 64 today, to post a total of -11 under par;

“I love this course, trajectory tends to be lower than compared to other guys, so I think I have an advantage here.”
