I said yesterday that someone would have to do something special to separate themselves from the log jam at the top of the leaderboard, and Craig has done just that, even with carding a bogey on the 12th hole. He now takes a two shot lead going into tomorrow's final round, with his tournament total of -16 under par;  " It was comfortably my best round ever. Even as an amateur or in a bounce game, I’ve never managed to get to double figures. So this is my best round by far, you just try to focus on each shot you play though. When you hit it and it is executed properly and you see it flying down the pin, it is pretty special. For the first 12 or 13 holes that was what was happening. It was pretty surreal to see all these good golf shots coming out in the same day. I’ve been playing quite nicely for a while so it has all come together. I would like to have had a heart rate monitor on, from the first I don’t think my heart got under 100 beats per minute. There were certain crucial putts that got the heart going and I don’t think it ever slowed down. I’m still not really ready to relax." There is a trio of players in second place at -14 under par, including the defending Champion Thomas Bjørn, who carded a third round -4 under par 67. Joining Thomas on the -14 under par score are Victor Dubuisson of France and Spaniard Alejandro Cañizares. Alejandro was happy with his back nine, which saved the day for him; " I made birdie on the 10th and from there on, everything just happened the right way. I’m very happy to finish the way I finished although there were a couple of tough putts in the end but I still managed to save the round.” In another memorable moment on the day England’s Richard Finch scored a hole in one on the par three 13th hole, Richard played a six iron dead weight to win an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial in red gold. The winner of this tournament will come from one of the top four players today, everyone else is too far adrift to make a serious challenge, unless of course they shoot a sub sixty final round.
