“On this golf course, in this field, you need to have all five players with a chance to shoot under par or you get left behind which is what happened today. Scores are close and we’re in a good spot heading into the final round.

“Noah did a great job today. Following up a low round is one of the hardest things to do in golf. He managed it very well and put himself in contention.”
