Jason took the lead in Australian Open with a third round -2 under par 71, giving him a one shot advantage going into the final round tomorrow at -10 under;

“It was tough to not force things. I know the crowds want to see a lot of birdies.”

“On a day like today, as a Professional golfer who has been around for a while, it is easy for me to see that I need to stay patient and not be aggressive.”

“Coming back and making birdie at the last made things much better after 17, I am looking forward to tomorrow’s round, hopefully I can pull through for a win.”

“The way Lucas played today; he showed a lot of maturity within himself so that was good to see.”

“He has a lot of potential, he has a great short game so when you can hit it long and have a good short game, there is always potential for a lot of success, he just needs to get a the reps under his belt, experience-wise with Tour golf.”

“I’m not focusing on too many guys tomorrow but I need to keep an eye on Lucas.”

Lucas Herbert is in second place at -9 under par, a sleepless night worrying about his one shot lead, and Jason Day led to a nervous round of even par 71;

“I don’t know how I slept last night.  It was like trying to drink three cans of Red Bull and then go to bed; that’s what it felt like.”

“But after I made a couple of good pars there to start, I think that sort of kicked the nerves and I was good to go.”

“I just wanted to give myself a chance going into tomorrow.”

“In that last group is obviously going to be a really big asset.  I’m going to be able to see what everyone’s doing and play from there and obviously try and get that shot back and maybe more than that to try and get in front.”

“I was pretty happy to save a lot of shots where I did.”

Jonas Blixt, Sweden, -5 under 66 today, shares third place with Matt Jones, -3 under 68, both of them are at -7 under for the competition.

Kevin knew he had a chance watching the ball roll across the green;

“We knew we had to have it, all I was trying to do was make sure I didn’t leave it short.”

“I couldn’t see much. I knew it was breaking a little right, and when it hit the flag I said, don’t you come out of there.”

Jonas knew what was needed to stop them winning in regular time;

“You have to expect the unexpected.”

“We have another shot at it tomorrow, and we just have to leave this behind and try to go out there and make birdie or eagle on 18 tomorrow and try and win this tournament.”

Cameron had to make a short putt, just to get into the play-off; after having victory snatched from them;

“It was tough, but we fought well on the back nine.”

Kelly Kraft / Kevin Tway finished in third place with a -23 under par total, they carded -11 under 61 for their last round together.

Kevin really enjoyed his week;

“That’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a golf tournament for sure, playing with one of my best friends.”

“I hope they keep this tournament around. It was really fun.”

Kelly also had fun out there;

“Honestly this week was more fun than Pebble, having Kevin with me, and kind of having someone to celebrate with you.”

“It’s not just you and your caddie out there, it’s you and another partner.”

“We have the same mindset. There’s a lot of sarcasm out there, and a lot of fun stuff going on.”

“I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, just being out there with Cameron, it’s just fun.”

“It’s like going back to playing as a kid. You just go out there and have fun and try to make birdies. I don’t feel like there’s any stress at all out there and there’s no pressure.”

Cameron is full of praise for his partner;

“I feel very comfortable going into tomorrow.”

“Jonas is playing well, so it’s just like having a backup.”

“If you have a bit of a bad hole, then Jonas is going to get away with a birdie or a par. It just frees you up.”

Tied in second place, one shot back with tournament totals of -15 under par are the teams of Charley Hoffman / Nick Watney, -3 under 69 today, and Kevin Kisner / Scott Brown, who were -5 under 67 today.

At -14 under, in fourth place, with -2 under 70, are Jordan Spieth / Ryan Palmer, they suffered with poor putting today, Jordan missing one from 3 feet, he commented;

“It’s very difficult out here with these grainy greens when you get the wind going one way and the grain the other.”

“So, even on a 6-footer, you’re trying to figure out exactly where you want to hit it and get comfortable.”

Jason shot a third round -8 under par 62, which included a bogey, at the Wyndham Championship. He now sits on top of the leaderboard at -15 under par, and will take a two shot lead into the final round tomorrow.

Jason is a longtime friend of Tiger, and was talking up the performance of his friend, and added a comment about himself;

“What the guy has done for the game, bringing people into the game of golf is amazing.”

“We all have better lives because of him, and you know, some of us have jobs because of him and I just think it’s awesome to see him playing well again, to see him playing like Tiger Woods, because that’s what we all want to see.”

“Contrary to popular belief, I’m still a good golfer.”

“You’d think a chubby guy from California couldn’t handle the heat and humidity. Maybe it brings my focus up.”

Tied in second place are Jonas Blixt, who also carded a bogey in his -8  under par 62, Scott Brown and Tiger Woods.

Scott had a -4 under par 66 today, while Tiger could only manage -2 under par 68.

Jonas wants to secure his PGA Tour card for next year, and a win here would do that;

“Very pleased if I secured my job. A win will take care of that.”

 “Shoot another 62, I should have a good chance.”

A win here for Tiger would clinch a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs, and help to make something from a dismal season;

“I felt very steady from the word go.”

“The putter just felt really good. My pace, I felt like I could be aggressive.”

“I took a few runs at putts and ripped them past the hole, but I never felt like I was going to miss any of them. I took a rip at them. Some I made, some I didn’t.”

“I need to go out there tomorrow and make a run and get myself up there and make some birdies.”

“There’s a bunch of guys at 13 under. There’s a whole slew of guys at 12, 11, 10. “

“Anybody can make a run and shoot the score Jason and Jonas did.”

There are five players tied in fifth spot, at -12 under par, Webb Simpson, Jim Herman, Paul Casey, Cameron Percy and Brandt Snedeker.
