overall with your round?
wasnít putting so well the day before yesterday, so I just trusted myself
and Iím very happy with the way I putted today. I think I could have
shot even better because I made two stupid bogeys, but golf canít be
it boring staying inside all day Tuesday?
hoped it would rain all day because once I went into the locker room,
you get out of rhythm, so I didnít want to play, because it would be
bad, and it would be so wet.
were the conditions today?
was dryer than I thought it would be. Some tee boxes were pretty wet,
but I think most of the course was pretty dry.
rough was pretty easy today. I thought it would be thicker because of
all the rain, but it actually got thinner.
about this course.
feel the same way about this course as I did at Ocean Hammock. Iím confident
hitting my driver. Even if you make a slight mistake it wonít hurt you
that bad, but if you hit good shots, you get rewarded.
to have your dad back as your caddie?
been more comfortable with my dad Ė he just knows my golf game a lot
you prefer stroke play or match play?
play Ė itís less pressure. I like it because itís shorter Ė you donít
have to play the whole week. Thereís going to be some bad holes and
you have to learn how to recover from bad shots. And if you play good,
you have to capture the moment and go for it Ė if you hit a good shot
to the hole or hit a good drive, you have to make birdie, otherwise
youíre giving it away. Pars donít win in match play.
