KELLY BARNES: Please welcome Gary Woodland to the interview room.
Gary, you've had a lot of momentum lately going into the Playoffs, you put together a couple great rounds this weekend, just not quite enough. Can you talk to us about how you feel moving to No. 10 in the FedExCup standings?
GARY WOODLAND: Yeah, today I just didn't have any AGame. Obviously I played well coming into today and hit some wayward shots early but I found a way to hang in there and grind it out and gave myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday which is everything you can ask for.
Made a bad decision on 13. I hit in the water, making bogey on a par 5 is tough for me and then I gave myself three good chances coming. I felt like I hit good putts. Just didn't go in.
Q. On 13, did the wind fool you?
GARY WOODLAND: It did. The wind fooled us. We thought it was across and it was obviously down, especially the second shot after I dropped, I hit it over the green, as well.
The wind fooled us. It picked up this afternoon. It played tough, especially coming in and just made a mistake there.
Q. Could you talk about 18, the good chance you had there to get into a playoff?
GARY WOODLAND: Yeah, I hit good shots there. Hit a great 3‑wood off the tee box. Hit a good 9‑iron in there. Gave myself a great look. Obviously I was fine‑‑ obviously I heard the horn, but I was still in the zone; when the crowd started‑‑ I had to back off there. I got refocused and I hit a good putt. Hit it right where I wanted to. Just went the other direction, but, all in all, you know, frustrating. Came here to win and didn't have enough at the end.
Q. You seem to have a bit of a two‑way miss going early on the iron going to the right into the bush and the next hole, driver left. Was that indicative of how you were struggling today a little bit?
GARY WOODLAND: Maybe a little quick early. Not too worried about the right side. I didn't like the left shot there, the driver. That was a bad golf swing but the one on the right I just got a little quick with it, but I like the miss to the right.
The par 5s hurt me today. I can hit irons into all of them and made par there, salvaged a par on 6, and bogey on 13 was the killer.
KELLY BARNES: Thanks, Gary.
