MORE INTERVIEWS: Valero Texas Open transcript archive Q. You had mentioned the tough holes with the wind. How much of a fight though -- you had a great score going -- the fight of trying not to get ahead of yourself??
Did that play at all today??
JORDAN SPIETH: I looked at the scoreboard. I knew where I was. It really -- I don't think it had an affect at all. It was more just really, really difficult holes and I mean I hit good shots that just -- I was kind of wondering how they went over the green.
I was hitting punch shots right at the hole and ended up going over the green. I look back and I don't feel like I ended up finishing the way I did but, you know, there's -- it's disappointing because I really didn't hit the ball that bad. Just those holes got the best of me.
Q. There was one hole, I forgot to mark it down, you and Briny were back behind and you punched yours and went down. What hole was that??
JORDAN SPIETH: 8.
Q. What did you see there and how did that shot maybe get away from you??
JORDAN SPIETH: I mean you can't leave it back down where you were. Mine -- Briny ended up banking it and getting up and down. That's a really difficult shot. I felt more comfortable trying to spin it, land it on the fringe and spin it. Wasn't much that I had. Just trying to hit the pin, really and --
Q. It did.
JORDAN SPIETH: If not, it's going to go by. I hit the shot how I wanted to.
