He said be believes in himself and thinks he can add to his two PGA Tour titles; "I believe in myself, and I think hopefully you'll be seeing more of me in the future, but this game is so hard, I don't know." "You've got to play all four rounds out here on TOUR and I expect everybody out there to go play well tomorrow. Everybody is so good at this level and it's so hard to compete and beat these guys." "Rory is having a great year, and a lot of guys are playing well. So it's so far off, so much golf we play, to be thinking about too much. But I'm not really going to be keeping an eye on anybody." "One time I birdied the last five holes and shot 29 on the back nine, one time I tried to hold it together the last couple of holes and won in a playoff. There's a lot of ways to win." "But I'm trying to not focus on that. I'm just trying to really enjoy it. Nobody is really expecting me to be sitting here right now. And that's kind of how I like it." Billy Horschel is still hanging around, today's -4 under par 67 good enough to give him second spot on the leaderboard at -11 under par, just one shot back, without he said playing too well; "I didn't hit it nearly as good as I did the first two days, at least in my liking. And I just knew, if I just kept making pars, not making any mistakes. I knew I was going to get some birdies somewhere in the round and it just happened to be the last three holes." "I played really solid. Me being patient today was hopefully a sign of me maturing a little bit and growing up as a golfer. So that's a good sign for me and hopefully I can keep doing it tomorrow." Jason Day and Chris Kirk are joined in third place by the big gun Rory McIlroy, all at -10 under par for the tournament. An amazing turn-around from Rory, yesterday all over the place, today -7 under par 64. Chris Kirk also recorded the same 64, Jason a little more modest at -2 under par, struggles with the back nine; "The front fits my eye, I like the front nine. The back nine you've got to pay a little more respect, because I think it's a little tougher." Throughout the PGA TOUR normally the harder holes are towards the end of the round. But this course, I wouldn't say it's the toughest finish on TOUR, 16, 17 and 18 you can definitely shoot up the leaderboard if you're playing well." Rory is feeling quite calm about his position in this tournament going into the final round; “I’ve been in this position quite a lot recently, so I know how it’s going to feel tomorrow.” "It feels normal, it feels like it’s what I’m supposed to do. It’s my job to go out there and shoot good scores. I’m not getting too excited about it. I’ve got a lot of work to do tomorrow if I want to win this tournament.”
