    Wilson Furr on frustrations that come with the rain… “Just the cluster of everything. Like you're having to put your glove on the umbrella, then you've got to put the umbrella away. Then I switched the jacket on, switched the jacket off. Just the cluster of it all. And the fact that it's freezing and raining doesn't help either. Yeah, I'd say that's the worst part. And you have 200 yards into holes that I had 120 yards into yesterday, so that sucks, too. Other than that, it's spectacular.”

    Wilson Furr on how he adjusts his play rainy conditions… “My metaphor is – I watch a decent bit of F1, the racing. When it starts raining there, they put on the rain tires because they have to ride differently. So it's like you have to kind of keep the ball down, you can't be slinging drivers, it will slip off the face. A lot of 3-woods and just a lot of just peppering the center of the green if you can and hope your lag putting's on for the day. So I just spent some time on the speed before the round because I knew it was going to be a tough one.”

    David Skinns on his mentality playing in bad conditions… “I had a coach in college who kind of took those situations where maybe some guys don't want to be there, so you've got to take that to your advantage and make it like you really want to be there. I want to play in this. If someone else doesn't want to play in it, I'm already one up. Yeah, it was what it was. We had to play in it, it wasn't going to stop. Just kind of tried to embrace it and almost have fun with it, but it's kind of hard to have fun when you're carrying an umbrella trying to keep everything dry. But yeah, we did a decent job.”

    David Skinns on his calm composure during competition… “It's taken me, I don't know how many years I've been a pro, but it's taken me almost up to now to learn that. It didn't come easy to me. Sometimes I did get overwhelmed and flustered, but I've done a much better job of keeping it under control and maintaining more of a level and a sense of optimism more than I used to. Yeah, it's something I've had to work really hard on.”
