Quick Quotes

Q. We're here with Jesse Florkowski. Nice playing out there today. Can you talk us through your round?

JESSE FLORKOWSKI: Yeah, for sure. It was kind of up and down all day. A few three-putts on the par-5s didn't go very well, but other than that it was a solid round. Hopefully we can build on the good play from the last couple days to tomorrow.

Q. Two rounds under your belt; what's the plan for tomorrow to keep yourself in contention here?

JESSE FLORKOWSKI: Yeah, for sure, just to kind of start attacking the pins and hope we don't have any three-putts like we did today, and we should be good.

Q. Just overall big picture how does it feel to be part of the first ever playing of this championship?

JESSE FLORKOWSKI: It's huge. I think it goes beyond golf. If you look at all the players playing here they have their own unique stories, but just listening to them, it's pretty big. I'm really excited to be a part of the first one and hopefully continue going to the next ones.

Q. How rewarding is it to share the golf course with so many other inspiring athletes with similar stories as yours?

JESSE FLORKOWSKI: For sure. It's really good. If you look at the leaderboard, there's some pretty damned good golfers here. Hopefully this tournament continues to grow and we get more and more people playing, and it'll be exciting times in the future for sure.

Q. How do you think this championship helps amplify stories like yours and everybody else out there?

JESSE FLORKOWSKI: It's huge, knowing that the USGA kind of is backing this whole event, I know the one guy that I was playing with today this was his very first adaptive event, and I think it had a lot to do with the USGA's name on the title.
