“I always look [at leaderboards]. I’m looking to see who’s making a charge at us, who’s doing what and what I need to do. I’m always looking to see what I need to do to finish on top, same tomorrow and same today.
"I was just trying to hold on to Jordan all the way round, felt like I did that quite well and tomorrow, same again, hopefully I can heat the putter up and get them all dropping.”

"If you'd given me a tie for the lead at the start of the week, I'd have bitten your hand off," said Smith. "I'm excited for tomorrow. It's going to be good fun and it's nice to be in that situation.
