Sean Crocker closed with an eagle at the par-5 18th for a 69 to reach 18-under and take a two-shot lead into the final day of the Hero Open.

“That was a nice little bonus on the 18th. I was trying to get it up and down for a birdie but to see that ball drop was pretty cool.”

His eagle made up for the double bogey he incurred at the 13th after finding the thick rough and opting for a drop.

“I was in control and it was either chip out or we take a chance and that could be the tournament over,” said the American.

“I think we made the right decision by taking the drop and trying to keep the score down as much as we could.”

“Even before I called over the rules official I wanted to have a go at it but every time I got near the ball I could see bad things happening,” he continued.

“The best thing that I did in this round was during that whole situation I got a little frustrated as I was figuring out what to do. The moment we took the drop and I hit it away I just forgot about it.

“From there I was like, ‘I’m still around the lead, let’s just make some pars and if something drops, it’s fine’.

England’s Eddie Pepperell (69) is tied in fifth with Wales’ Oliver Farr (70), France’s Victor Dubuisson (67) and South Africa’s Louis De Jager (68).
