MARC LEISHMAN: I don't know if I played as well as yesterday but I scored better. It's never a bad thing when you can sort of scrape it around for a couple under.

Q. When you had good looks you got the one on 8 and a couple other. Most of them, though, you were just putting away really clever pars.

MARC LEISHMAN: Yeah, I hit a lot of good shots and hit a few ordinary shots, but like I said, the misses were in the right spots. If I can keep doing that the next couple of days it would be good and try and hole a few more birdie putts.

Q. You've been in the mix of a few tournaments before. Does it feel any different now? You're obviously a better golfer now.

MARC LEISHMAN: Yeah, I'm a better golfer now, definitely. I haven't done anything since Bay Hill last year, but I like this course, the game feels good. This week not so much but the last couple of weeks I've been making a lot of bogeys instead of birdies, so hopefully I can roll a few putts in. I think I've got the speed down now, so I'm ready to go.

Q. You mentioned there's a handful of courses you like on TOUR. Is this one of those??


Q. Is there any reason why that is??

MARC LEISHMAN: Some courses out here I like more than others. I grew up on poa, so that's good. It's familiar. So you know, just tee to green, they go as I see them. On Bermuda or in Phoenix, for example, you've just got to read grain into it or whatever it is, but here I see it and pretty much know where it's going to go. That's a good feeling when you're standing over a five footer and you know where it's going to go.
