Jason Day has put some daylight between himself and second placed Jordan Spieth at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
Jason carded an eagle, eight birdies, two bogeys and a double in his third round at the PGA Championship, which added up to a -6 under par 66 on the day and a total of -15 under par, and importantly a two shot cushion heading into the final round tomorrow.
He will carry on giving it 100%, to finally land his first Major title;
“I played great all three rounds and I’ve just got to keep pushing forward, keep grinding it out the best I can and just give it 100 per cent tomorrow.”
“Overall I feel pretty confident in my abilities to really just keep moving forward and stay patient with myself.”
Second placed Jordan, at -13 under par for the tournament, also scored a -6 under par 66 today. He wants to claim his third Major of the year, and join an illustrious band, Tiger Woods (2000) and Ben Hogan (1953;
“Very pleased to have a chance to win another major.”
Third place is shared between Branden Grace and Justin Rose, both on -12 under par for the title.
Branden carded a bogey free -8 under par 64 to put himself into contention, and says he is finally getting used to playing in America, and likes it;
“I think I’m finally getting the hang of America, this is a dream to play out here. I think I’ve been playing some great golf.”
“The US Open was a good one coming into this and even the Open Championship, just getting the confidence up, knowing that I can do it, can play in this environment and under this pressure.”
“I’m as excited as can be. It’s another chance, this is what we all play for.”
“We all play to give ourselves the opportunity to get close to a major championship and we’re all here for the same reason; we want to win this thing.”
“It’s just about getting out tomorrow, getting out on the first tee with a smile and hopefully the smile can be there all day.”
Justin was annoyed at his bogey at the last, and is still having problems with 4, carding double bogey there for the last two days;
“The fourth has cost me a couple of doubles there, so if I can figure that one out tomorrow it will help.”
“The only thing that will taste a little sour is that bogey on 18.”
“I hit a good tee shot and was staring down the barrel with a seven iron. I thought it was a good club and misjudged the wind and it came up short, but I was really pleased with the way I hung in there today.”
“I can freewheel it a bit tomorrow. Obviously I have the luxury to not have to sleep on the lead and stress about anything.”
“I can have the nothing to lose mentality tomorrow.”
“It is going to be tricky tomorrow if it is windy. That’s a harder environment to guard your lead and keep moving forward and it enables the chasing pack to do a better job of catching up.”
Tiger Woods missed the cut here, his third straight Major cut in a row. Rory McIlroy has decided to cut out The Barclays, to rest his injured ankle;
“I’m going to take a couple of weeks off just to sort of re-assess everything, and I’ll start back in the playoffs at Boston.”
“Then play through the FedExCup. Then I’ve got to play Frys.com and then I’m playing maybe a couple more after that, Dubai and China.”
