"Especially, if I can win one, two or three of the next ones", he said. "After I was playing so well at the beginning of the year, I definitely needed it more". It was a tough day but I feel like even on the front nine, I hit the ball really, really well. He did well to make bogey from both spots and had to settle for a 69. He executed that shot perfectly, and was left with a birdie putt of less than four feet. "I'm over the ball and I'm actually looking at the target and hitting the shot that I want to hit, rather than just looking at the target and kind of seeing nothing". "I said, 'Yeah, it was"'.

After winning the PGA Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, Justin Thomas seemed to have locked up the PGA Tour Player of the Year award, and officially gotten out from underneath Spieth's shadow.

"I know everybody's out here looking to support me, to cheer me on", Henderson said. I have been moved by the sheer numbers who have followed my career around the world and have supported me throughout, and they have been out in force this week. I just want to perform to the best of my abilities.

"My game is coming on and the changes I am trying to make are starting to take effect". Most of the time, he's been able to recover from shaky turns, and perhaps that will still be the case going forward. The last time Simpson posted top-10 results in consecutive starts was in 2013-14 when he had four-in-a-row (2013 TOUR Championship/4th, 2013 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open/1, 2013 The RSM Classic/T7, 2014 Sentry Tournament of Champions/T3).

"Right after I hit my drive, I was like, 'What am I doing?' " Johnson said. "The conditions are really good here".

Nadal fails to reach Cincinnati semis, Thiem falls to Ferrer
I'm always trying to hit underneath and trying to hit up and over it", Kyrgios said after his first win over Ferrer. In 2014, Kyrgios became an overnight sensation when he stunned Nadal in the fourth round of the Wimbledon.

The risk paid off, leaving the 2016 US Open Champion a lob wedge in to the green. She has four runner-up finishes this season, including a playoff loss to Ariya Jutanugarn in June in the Manulife Classic in Cambridge, Ontario.

"It was a lot of fun", Johnson told Sky Sports. "This week I did that - I finally got back".

"Yeah, I think so".

Lincicome birdied the par-5 18th for her second straight 68. But the course is in great condition. "Just didn't feel like I got into a good flow, but I managed the round really well". Nicole Broch Larsen, a co-leader entering the day, had 70 to tie for third at 10 under with Cristie Kerr (69), In Gee Chun (70), Shanshan Feng (68) and Marina Alex (68).

Spieth made pars from the bunkers on the last two holes to join the others at six-under 134. Horsey was one adrift standing on the 18th tee but a triple-bogey seven handed the title to the American.
