“It’s funny, on 9, my caddie; I asked him, I was like, who do you think is going to win this week?”
“He’s like, well, I think there’s more to be said. I think you can post a number and you can see what happens. He knew better than I did, and I did it.”
“It was an extremely long wait, I couldn’t do anything about what they were doing. I just did my best to prepare for a playoff.”
“It’s unbelievable, if you would’ve told me that I had a round at the Masters; if somebody was going to take me out and not completely with the Masters, just to play Augusta National, I would have freaked out”
“. But now I’m playing the Masters. It’s a joke. It’s unbelievable.”
Sharing second at -15 under par were Patton Kizzire, Kevin Na, Cameron Tringale,Jason Bohn ,Alex Cejka, Kevin Na and Brett Stagmeir.
Kevin came up wit the quote of the day:
