“The wind doesn’t seem to take it as much.”
“That’s just a personal thing for me. I feel like I did when I was a kid again. I felt like I was a better ball striker when I was a kid.”
“I’m starting to get some of those feelings back.”
“I’m making putts, but I’m also putting myself in position to make those putts.”
“I’m getting a bunch of looks. I’m not making everything I’m looking at, but I’m hitting a lot of good putts and made a few.”
“I’m just going to show up tomorrow and try to hit the first tee shot best you can and go from there.”
Nearest challengers are at -10 under par, and there are five of them, Zach Johnson, -3 under 67 today, John Peterson,-6 under 64, Tom Hoge, -5 under 65, Chris Kirk, -3 under 67 and Talor Gooch, -4 under 66.
John has a good attitude, and wants to keep his playing card;
“If my attitude is good, I’m going to play good.”
“I’ve never been in a better spot lifestyle-wise than I am right now, so that probably has a lot to do with it.”
“I’ve got eight events to make $350,000. If I do, great. If I don’t, who cares? I’m just out here free-wheeling.”
