Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii, USA
Plantation Course at Kapalua
Q. Assess your play.
DANIEL BERGER: 18-under after three round is pretty good for me. I don't think I've ever been in that position. So I mean, you still got to make a bunch of birdies even though the course is scorable. So happy with my play and another good grouping. I got to play with Harris and saw a bunch of good golf shots so just excited for one more day.
Q. What kind of changed for you a little bit on the back nine? Maybe it was a little bit of a slow start, but you kind of picked it up on the back. Any change?
DANIEL BERGER: I just saw a putt or two fall and I felt like I left a lot of shots out there. But my ball striking the past three days has been the best that it's been in a long time, so if I can just continue that momentum for the next couple weeks then I'll have another chance to win going forward.
Q. What's your mentality heading into tomorrow? A lot of guys bunched up at the top of the leaderboard and of course it takes a low number.
DANIEL BERGER: Yeah, make a bunch of birdies, try to give yourself as many opportunities as possible, play the par-5s well, try to make an eagle here or there, and just make a ton of birdies.
Q. Is there one key that you have to focus on tomorrow to be successful?
DANIEL BERGER: Yeah, just be patient like I was today. I didn't get a bunch of birdies to fall early, but I hung in and shot a good score on the back nine and so if I can do that tomorrow on the front nine then it will be a good week.
