Andrew "Beef" Johnston is loving playing in front of his home supporters and staying in contention at the BMW PGA Championship.
The Englishman posted a level-par 72 in windy Wentworth conditions to stay within five shots of Andrew Dodt's lead.
Always a fan favourite, Johnson had plenty of crowd support throughout his round, despite having fallen out of the world's top 100.
"I really kind of bounce off it," Johnston said about the crowds. "Always want make the putt and hit a good shot in and get the crowd going.
"I just walk around with a big smile on my face because I never dreamt of sort of being in this position and having that kind of support.
"I need to go out (on Sunday) and play well and just go and put a good score on the board. I know I can play well around here, so I just try and do my thing."
Johnson wasn't the only Englishman who got the crowds going. Lee Westwood made a late run with three straight birdies to lie just three shots back.
"When things aren't going your way you have to find another way of getting it around the golf course and I did," Westwood said. "My short game's been really sharp, and it needed to be today.
"I was very patient out there today. I didn't play my best golf, and I didn't hit it very well tee-to-green. But I hit a few fairways and greens on the last few holes. It was great to finish like that and get back to level par."
