    Parker Coody on playing alongside his brother… “I mean, obviously we care so much about each other and how we actually play. Hopefully we both play well this weekend and we both kind of stay in our own lanes and in the end it will all work out. I'd say we're pretty similar, we both want to beat each other as much as we can, but if I'm not winning or he's not winning, we both want each other playing well. So I want him to play well and I want to beat him playing well, that would be ideal.”

    Parker Coody on finding consistency… “At times it's tough and at times it feels easy. Right now, luckily, it feels easy, but tomorrow's a new day and we'll see how things feel. It's just, it's a pretty scorable course. As long as you don't get ahead of yourself, you're going to have opportunities, just keep doing that.”

    Parker Coody on sitting atop the leaderboard entering the weekend… “Feel good. Obviously the spot you'd like to be in 36 holes in, but you're obviously 36 holes out, too. There's a lot of golf to be played. … In the beginning of the year, my game was okay, but yeah, it's definitely trending in the right direction. I'd say mentally I'm a better spot, just really taking care of what I can take care of. It's been nice, and hopefully do that for another 36 holes.”
