American Daniel Berger made two birdies and a bogey at the final hole on Saturday to sign for a 69, increasing his lead to five shots at the Honda Classic on a day when only thirteen players shot below par.

“I’ve played some great golf but the challenge is still ahead, 18 more holes, and I’ve got to stay focused on playing another great round tomorrow and if I can do that then I’ll be holding the trophy at the end of the day.

“It’s going to be a challenge tomorrow. The greens are going to be, I expect a little firmer and faster and I just have to continue to do the same thing I did today and hit fairways and greens and make some putts.”

Ireland’s Shane Lowry had the low score of the day with a 67 to move into a share of second place at 6-under alongside Austria’s Sepp Straka (69) and Americans Kurt Kitayama (71) and Chris Kirk (71).

“[The greens are] just firming up and they’re crusty and around the hole is pretty difficult,” said Lowry. “It’s quite hard to get a 25-footer to get good pace on it and get the right speed, it’s just tricky. It’s playing great though, I really like the way it’s playing, it’s quite enjoyable out there. It’s such a tough test because I feel like personally that too many weeks we play where it’s 20-, 25-under winning tournaments so for me this is more enjoyable than that.”
