“It was very fortunate, I was just trying to get it anywhere on the green there and two-putt for a birdie.”
“Fortunately enough it rolled in there close and I made a three.”
“I’m not really thinking that far ahead right now, I’m just thinking about what I’m going to have tonight to be honest.”
“I’ll just go about my work tomorrow and try and get the ball a bit more off the center of the club , a bit more consistency in the swing and what will be, will be.”
Shooting the low round of the day was Tyrrell Hatton, a brilliant -6 under par 66, giving him second place on his own at -8 under par for the competition.
Lee Westwood recorded a solid -4 under par 68, and is sharing third place with Y.E. Yang, +3 over par 75 today, both players at -7 under par.

Danny explained his troubles on the course, and why it all slipped away;
“The back nine is a lot more draw off the tee and we obviously struggle hitting that.”
“The front nine sets up quite nice, trying to hit fade off there most of the time.”
“We’ve got to take a lot of tight lines off the left in the back nine.”
“Every now and again you kind of hit one straight and it kind of clips the trees and stays left, or you overdo it.
“We had everything under control nicely and then a couple of loose shots, a couple of bad decisions, a couple of missed putts and very quickly it kind of slipped away.
