Wiesberger ready to enjoy day

US PGA Championship contender Bernd Weisberger insists he will just be looking to enjoy the day ahead of the final round in Valhalla on Sunday.

The Austrian finds himself just one shot behind overnight leader Rory McIlroy after 54 holes, meaning the unheralded 28-year-old from Vienna could pip the World No 1 to glory.

Being in contention for a major heading into the final round is a new experience for Weisberger and he is simply looking to remain calm ahead of what should be an exciting day's play in Louisville, Kentucky.

Weisberger is a two-time winner on the European Tour and he fired himself into contention on Saturday with a superb six-under par 65 to pile the pressure on McIlroy.

"I've not been in contention in a major championship, so I don't know how it's going to turn out," Wiesberger said.

"I'm just trying to enjoy as I did today. I was in a great situation and I felt quite calm. From now on, it's just a bonus, really.

"I've never played well in the Majors, I've played well in the other bigger events in Europe and won a couple.

\"It's not the same, but you kind of get a feeling for what you have to do, how you have to handle yourself. It's just on a different level. But things are still the same. You're still out there with your caddie trying to do the best you can.

"I know what I'm capable of doing. I know if I drive the ball well and don't get ahead of myself, I can play good golf.

\"I was kind of surprised that I was really calm out on the first tee box. We had great crowds there. And hitting the first tee shot down the centre obviously was a bit of a relief.\"
