Matt equaled the tournament record low round of -9 under par bogey free 61 to lead the Wyndham Championship by just one point, in a low scoring first round at Sedgefield Country Club;
“I played good, and have been playing good for a while, so it’s just nice to see it come together.”
“I have a high regard for my talent. Like, I know I’m as talented as anyone out here, maybe like five guys are more talented than me, so I couldn’t let myself quit,”
“There were a lot of low points, though. That’s life. Just everything that I’ve been through, I’ve brought on myself.”
“So I don’t need any sympathy or anything. It’s just the way my path has gone so far in the last couple years.”
Henrik Stenson, from Sweden, was also bogey free, he holds second place with his opening round of -8 under 62;
“I hit a lot of good shots out there.”
“There were plenty of birdies, so it was a good day.”
Webb Simpson, Cameron Smith, Vaughn Taylor, Tim Wilkinson, Harold Varner III, Brian Campbell and Sam Saunders all share third place at -7 under par.
