“When you’re leading it’s easy to start thinking about the finish line, but I’ve got so much golf in front of me. I’m trying to just focus on – I want to go out there and play the first nine holes, the first few really well and pad that lead, and then I can approach the back nine or go from there.

“I’ve been getting off to good starts. I’ve been making enough birdies to where I can shoot a low numbers if I can keep the mistakes out of there. Just going to try and keep making a bunch birdies.”

An eagle at the par-5 17th made up for two earlier bogeys at the 12th and 14th.

“That was huge kind of going into tomorrow,” he said of the eagle. “I wasn’t quite as sharp today off the tee and had to play a little defensive into some of the greens. It’s nice to put two good swings on there and make that putt to kind of capitalize and get some ground back that I had lost those first 15, 16 holes.”
