“I just aimed right at the pin and it was just how I wanted to hit it.”
“I started a little bit right and then drawing a bit left against the wind which held it up a little and then it landed and rolled.”
“Then the crowd was just cheering and standing up. It was a great experience. I couldn’t see it, but I knew when the crowd went crazy.”
There is not much doubt who will win this tournament, but it will be interesting how the rest of the leaderboard pans out tomorrow.
