“At the end of the day, I’ve just got to go out and keep doing what I’m doing and make a couple of birdies and shoot 70, 69, something like that. Make them shoot five or six under par and credit to them.

“I thought I played quite solid. It was a difficult day to be fair, some tough flags to get at. There were times when I didn’t quite put the ball in play and I couldn’t really go anywhere near them.”
