"I played great", Wallace said. I'm going to draw from my experiences last week. It has been very satisfying week because it is definitely the toughest golf course that I have played in my career. Johnston fought back strongly on the back nine and when Wallace bogeyed the hard par-3 18th, "Beef" was in the battle.

Despite his lacklustre show, Sharma continues to lead the European Tour Race to Dubai and the Asian Order of Merit. "I was most nervous on 16th tee, the second shot, I hit it bunker on the downslope".
Beef made it a three-shot hole to set up a lengthy birdie bid.
Co-leader Wallace, whose second straight 70 included and eagle at the par-4 9th, is expecting another hard day Sunday but relishes the challenge. In the end, I just want to play good golf. on Sunday's an example of that. "There is a lot of work in front of me because I don't think I am anywhere close to my best golf", he wrote. I am sure he knows as well as anyone playing this game at the highest level, that golf tournaments are never won over two days - it is how you perform over four days that counts.
