“I don’t always have that (a calmness), but it’s something I actively try and work on – to be as level as I can be out there. It helps on a course like this. You have to be. The score almost goes out the window at times, usually that’s a governor of how you feel. The course is asking a lot of different challenges and you can’t dwell when it goes against you. I’m trying to stay as level as I can and I’m doing a good job.

“The golf course doesn’t give you loads. Although, as we all know, there’s opportunities to drop shots here. I think what it means is I can go out tomorrow and play how I have these last couple of days. The score I end up on will be competitive, I think. That gives me a lot of confidence going in. Having said that, we know what the course is like. The last five or six holes the wind came up from nowhere and the finishing holes are really tough. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with that tomorrow. There’s a whole load of things that can change on the course.”

“I don’t know how you can go for some of the pins. The way my caddie and myself go about it, we’re looking more at zones and channels on the greens. If you get a good number and the green is receptive you can have a bit of a dig. A lot of the time it’s playing to zones 15 or 20 feet, a lot of the time that’s a really good shot – giving yourself a chance with the putter. Then if you take advantage of the par fives they can potentially give you birdies.”

Canter came through Qualifying School four tomes and has recorded three second place finished in the past two seasons.

Fellow Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick signed for a 70 to take second place followed by American David Lipsky who shot a 64 to reach 3-under and tied the lowest round in the history of this event joining Sergio Garcia (2018) and Daniel Brooks (2017).

“Valderrama was a real test today. You had to be so patient. Early doors there wasn’t much wind and a chance to make some birdies, but I didn’t really do that. Then the wind picked up on the back nine and it was a case of sticking in there. I’m really pleased with the way I grinded it out and I’m happy with the one under.”

“I’m excited to be in the final group. The aim at the start of the week is to be up there. It doesn’t get better than having a chance to win on Sunday. I ‘ll go out there and enjoy it.”

Five players are tied in fourth place at 2-under including overnight leader Romain Langasque of France who made two birdies and four bogeys on Saturday to close with a 73.
