    WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

    “If you try to play the fat of the green, you still have a 30-, 35‑footer with a tough pin placement. I had 179 hole and I hit 9‑iron and it flew all the way to the hole, which is normally about a 165 club. And that's just because you get pumped up. Your blood starts flowing a little faster and you get excited. That pin location, it makes it tough.” -- Bubba Watson

    “There's nothing better than hitting a great shot there and then rolling in the putt. The crowd is unlike any other crowd on TOUR. Each year they seem to do something a little bit different and a little bit more and it's a little more amped up. It's good.  It's good for golf.” -- Hunter Mahan, who two-putted for par on the hole.
