“The game seems to be close. It’s just a matter of, if I can control the putter and make some putts, we are always going to be there and thereabouts, which is nice.”

“I’ve driven the ball well – I didn’t drive it that great yesterday. I hit it in the sand rather than the rough and that makes it a bit easier.

“I rolled the ball pretty good and, for the most part, kept bogeys off the card. Hit the fairway on the longer, tougher par fours. Ultimately just grinding. It was a grind of a day today, to be fair, just a bonus there on six.”

Englishman Tyrrell Hatton (66) lies in second place at under followed by Paraguayan Fabrizio Zanotti (70) and South African Erik van Rooyen (67) in third place at 8-under.
