QBE Shootout 2021 R2

Marc Leishman and Jason Day closed with an 8-under 64 in Saturday’s modified alternate shot format to take a three-shot lead into the final day of the QBE Shootout.


“We did a lot of good things today,” said Day. “I mean, anytime out of position or whatnot, we got up and down or kept our momentum going forward, which was nice. It was nice to be able to go bogey-free in that kind of format. Unfortunately I missed a few too many easy putts out there, but it was nice to be able to capitalize on the 18th. And Leish once again holing out on 7, amazing. In that kind of format it’s nice to have eagles, it moves the needle a long way, especially when you’re playing that way.

“I was actually a little bit between clubs because the wind was into me,” said Leishman of his hole-out eagle at the 7th. “I was between lob wedge and sand wedge. Just ripped a lob wedge a bit lower and felt like I could land it a bit past it and maybe zip it back and give Jase a chance, because he hadn’t really putted up until then except on the first hole. It’s funny, the ones you hole are the ones you don’t expect to go in. I wasn’t expecting it to go in and then all of a sudden it disappears. It’s nice. Something about this place that I’ve made a few shots the last couple years and hopefully we can keep that trend going tomorrow.”
