MORE INTERVIEWS: Frys.com Open transcripts archive Q. You're right there heading into tomorrow.

JASON KOKRAK: Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. I think the first time this year I put myself in really good position, so I'm looking forward to it.

Just go out there and do the same things I did all day today.

Q. What have you learned this year? You've played a lot of golf, and obviously it takes an effect after a while, doesn't it?

JASON KOKRAK: Not be stereotypical, but just stay patient out there is the biggest key. You got to put yourself in the right places. You get a little bit out of position, you got to aim towards the middle of the green and take your medicine.

But there were a lot chances for birdie today, so I took a few opportunities at the end of the round. Try to get off to a little bit hotter start tomorrow.

Q. Tomorrow is going to be a shootout, isn't it??

JASON KOKRAK: I think so.

Q. Are you excited about that??

JASON KOKRAK: I can't wait. I'm looking forward to it. The course is giving up a lot of birdies right now. The greens are a little softer than maybe Tuesday in the practice round. I think actually they've been pretty consistent throughout the week, but hopefully they'll firm up tomorrow and make it a little bit tougher.

Q. When you rolled in the eagle at 17 we called you the X Man. You went to Xavier University. You like that nickname??

JASON KOKRAK: That's good enough for me.

Q. All right. Maybe the X man will win tomorrow.

JASON KOKRAK: Thanks, man.
