World Invitational 2021 R2

“It was really good out there. Made the most of some pretty benign conditions in the morning and got off to a good start. Managed to sink a couple more near the end.

“I’ve hit it really well. Made one bad swing on hole 11 and made bogey there but apart from that it was really solid.

“I’ve been playing well the last couple of months, just haven’t really put four rounds together yet. In a pretty good position at the moment so just going to keep riding the wave and stick to the game plan and see how we go.”

Hillier, who won the New Zealand Amateur twice and turned professional in 2019. He qualified for the PGA Tour of Australasia but due to the pandemic has mostly been playing in New Zealand’s Charles Tour where he has won two of the six events.

Overnight leader Jordan Smith is in solo second place after carding a 68 comprising of six birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey at the 10th.

Englishmen Garrick Porteous (64) and David Horsey (65) share third place at 8-under followed by Matthias Schmid (69), Carlos Pigem (63), Nacho Elvira (67) and Eddie Pepperell (67).

American Emma Talley fired fired nine birdies and two bogeys to follow up her opening 67 with a 65 to top the Ladies’ leaderboard at 13-under.

“Confidence I think is the main thing. I think this is the first time in a long time that I’ve been in this position but it’s the first time in a long time that I’ve felt this comfortable over the golf ball and with my putter. I feel really relaxed. There’s a lot of golf left, so just going to stay patient and keep doing our thing.”
