Scott Verplank
Q. Talk about what went well for you today.
SCOTT VERPLANK: What went well today was I was
really patient. Kind of hung in there. Made some
pretty good saves on the front nine. And then started
hitting it a little bit better on the back, but I hit it close a
couple times for birdies and I made one nice putt on
11. Other than that, I just kind of kept parring it to
death. And I didn't drive it very good, so I'm going to
need to drive it a little bit better tomorrow to have a real
shot. But the course is so hard that pars are not awful
on most holes. There's not a whole lot of birdie holes.
So, just hanging in there and being patient is huge.
Q. There was some good scores in the morning,
and did you think that maybe the course was going
to yield some more of that or can you get into that
mode of attacking it out there?
SCOTT VERPLANK: Well, you know, I know there
wasn't any wind at all early, which obviously helps. But
like I said, there's not a whole lot of attacking on this
golf course. You can do a little bit, but, boy, some of
the holes, you're putting yourself in tremendous
amount of peril with your score if you get too
aggressive. So, the weather's finally nice and the
course is drying out, so there are some better scores.
But it's a hard golf course, there's no way around it.
Q. You have to like your position as hard as this
golf course is, to at least maybe be two or three
shots off the lead heading into the last round.
SCOTT VERPLANK: Well, yeah, I am where I am. I
would rather be leading by eight, but I'm not. But I'm
doing okay. Hopefully, I'll improve a little bit tomorrow
physically with how I was hitting it and give myself a
real chance.
