His -21 under par total will be hard to chase down, even for the likes of Tiger, Ian and Henrik. Understandably Victor said he felt very tired after his heroics;  "I'm very tired now, so I think I will sleep easy tonight, but it will be very stressed I think. I'll try not to think about it because if I think about it, I will put too much pressure on myself.  But I know tomorrow Ian, Tiger and Henrik, they will shoot very low scores, so I have to keep the same strategy. I know I have a five-shot lead, but with all these great players, tomorrow it will be a very tough day." In second place at -16 is Ian Poulter, his third round of -4 under par 68, paled into insignificance in terms of winning this tournament, but he is still hopeful of winning The Race to Dubai; "It would be a highlight right now if I can pull it off.  So I need to go deep tomorrow. I mean, I need to make as many birdies, certainly as I've made in any round in the last couple of weeks. I need to go and throw eight, nine-under par tomorrow, hopefully put a lot of pressure on Victor and see what happens." Tied in third place are four players at -15 under par, and six shots behind the runaway leader, they are, Tiger Woods, Henrik Stenson, Raphael Jacquelin and Alejandro Cañizares. Henrik admits he is in a race for second place, and hopes his ongoing wrist injury holds up under the strain; " Dubuisson seems to be playing really well; he's kind of pulled away. But then it's a tight race for second, five, six guys tied on second position at the moment. There is still some hope there for tomorrow. I'll try to finish strong tomorrow and carry on to next week." Of his injury he said, "It desperately needs rest and recovery time and I don't have that at the moment, so I'm just trying to scrape by and it's going to be limited preparations for next week." Tiger also admits to carrying an injury; "My arm is a little tender. I smoked it on something. I don't know what I hit but I hit something hard. I just dealt with it and just played through it. I won't need any treatment." These guys need a 63 themselves tomorrow, but would still need an epic collapse from Victor to have any hope of winning, but that is golf, strange things happen.
