ANGEL CABRERA: I’m pleased, after a triple bogey I managed to finish one under and I’m still tehere, still fighting. I’m confident, putting well and I’ll try to keep on like that. It will all depend on me.

NICK FALDO: I would love to get in the swing of things tomorrow and Sunday. That's what I need in my game. I've played some consistent golf in America for a few weeks here and there, but the important thing is to get in there and play with the heat on you. That would be a big plus if I could do that this week, get in there, feel the heat and see how we could hang on.

SOREN KJELDSON: Played really, really good today. Played like last Sunday. Played well yesterday but everything was just that little bit better today and I made a lot of putts. The course was probably playing a little easier this morning.

STEPHEN LEANEY: I’ve been struggling with my swing the last couple of weeks but I’ve been working really hard with my coach Denis Pugh. Got off to a good start, holed a couple of nice putts on the first and second from about 12 and 20 feet. Birdied four and then made some solid pars. Birdied 15, 17 and then eagled 18. Shot a 64 but I missed a short putt on the 13th but overall it is my lowest score for about 18 months.

COLIN MONTGOMERIE: 33 putts yesterday, 32 today so that’s your story. 30 putts is bad enough and that is five shots less which would have been seven under. Simple as that, even with an eight. That allows me even an eight. I should be ten under. It is not difficult out there.

NICK O’HERN: It was very exciting. Got off to a sloppy start and happy to shoot 71 with only five pars today. One of those days. I was hitting it all over the shop today and was struggling. You have those days and to shoot one under is pretty good. Quite happy

ANDREW OLDCORN: I played nicely. Played nicely for two days. So, I'm not surprised to be in this position, because that's the best I've played so far this year. Just nice to do it in this tournament. Not looking too far ahead, you know. Fatal mistake, I think, to make. If I'm anywhere near the lead coming to the 18th on Monday, then that's what I've got to try and aim for over the next two days. Any further forward than that -- I'm not going to try to look any further than that.

PHILLIP PRICE: Not quite as spectacular as yesterday – in fact I would say it was a workmanlike round. I’m still in there and that’s the most important thing.

VIJAY SINGH : I still threw away a few shots early on but I found out what I was doing wrong with my putting on the fifth hole when I three putted. From then on I putted nicely. I moved the ball too far forward yesterday. Putted horrible yesterday and realised that wasn’t the way to putt. Discussed it with my caddie and got it going.

DES SMYTH: I was very tidy around the greens, putted nicely and got off to a great start. Five under after nine. Beautiful birdie on the second from about 12 feet. Then made a good save on the next, went over the back and knocked it to 10 feet and holed it.

STEVE WEBSTER: I've played okay here in the past, but I've not scored that well, so this is all new to me, and my game feels fine. The key was patience, really. Started off steady. I kept my mind on what I was doing and I was just hitting it nicely, really and managed to make a few putts.
