“There was a lot of grinding there on the back nine but I’m happy to get in with four under. Probably wouldn’t have taken it at the start of the day but given the shots that I hit, I’m pretty happy with it leading into tomorrow.”
“Everything feels good, the game feels great, I just didn’t pick shots.”
“I hit a few shots without having a shot in mind so that’s something to work on for tomorrow.”
