“My next goal is, of course, to win a Major and I’m going to do all that I can to prepare well for that.”
“I was really nervous at the start of the day but I was able to birdie hole number one. I kind of got myself into the rhythm of the day and after that, it was smooth sailing.”
“I really don’t know why I played well this week. The last three years, I’ve had to withdraw twice and I didn’t play very well the other year.”
“But I got off to a good start. I really didn’t make any changes to my golf swing or anything.”
“But I have putted really well these last three weeks, and that’s probably the difference.”
“I did play well today. I hit the ball a lot better. But putting was the difference this week.”
