“I’ve been playing really well, I just haven’t produced the scores.”
“I feel I’m playing well, and see what the next three days bring.”
“I haven’t read it for the last 10 years, so I picked it up yesterday and started reading a few things that I’ve been doing, and it’s just a different mindset.”
“Golf swing has been the same, so become a lot more aggressive this year.”
“That’s the plan, to attack the golf course instead of just trying to put it in the fairway and trying to make a good swing.”
“I can’t tell you, ( the title of the book) I’d have to kill you.”
Ricky Barnes is in the group at -7 under, he unfortunately has gone 205 starts on the PGA Tour since he turned pro without winning, he explained his up and down form;
“Some things would click for a round, and then they would kind of go away.”
“But I felt like the stuff we are working on now is here to stay.”
I kind of feel that way about my own game.
