Crowne Plaza Invitational transcripts

Q. A good round of golf, really you drove the ball brilliantly all day, you missed just two fairways 12 and 14.

Thank you. Putting the ball in position off the tee is critical out here. It gave me some opportunities to go at some flags.

Q. You are from Fort Worth, you still live in the area, what does this tournament mean to you?

You know, I think family and friends are one of the most important things in the world, to be able to play in front of them and to be able to hang out with them for the week is something very, very special.

Q. Talk about some of the hole locations, because you didn't have that many from the edges, but you had some towards the back of the greens where it was hard to be aggressive into some of the holes because they would roll off if you got too aggressive and passed the hole location?

Right. I definitely think you had to pick your spots because there is a few pins out there that were definitely difficult. If you left it below the hole about 10 or 15 feet, the greens are so good. If you started on line, it's probably going to go in.

Q. What are your thoughts for the final round?

To stay aggressive, keep making birdies.

Q. Do you have a lot of people out here following you?

I do. It's fantastic.

Q. You know I knew the answer to that question because I heard the roars all day.

Thank you.
