Quick Quotes

Q. What a shot. How many times have you had an albatross?

MITO PEREIRA: First time.

Q. First time?


Q. First time ever or in competition?

MITO PEREIRA: First time ever. It's not easy to do it.

Q. Can you describe the shot?

MITO PEREIRA: I think it was like 270, wind from the left. 250-something to the front. I was just trying to get a 3-wood landing on the front and just roll it back. Hit it perfectly, a little fade, and just it kicked the right way towards the hole, but I thought it was going to go long. Suddenly everybody just went nuts.

Q. There were a lot of people around?

MITO PEREIRA: Yes, it was nice.

Q. And you're going to keep the ball?

MITO PEREIRA: Yeah, it's in the bag.

Q. Are you making sure that it doesn't get lost amongst the other ones?

MITO PEREIRA: We'll see how much that -- I don't know, probably get lost somewhere but...

Q. Where does that rank in career shots for you, that albatross? Is that up top or close to it?

MITO PEREIRA: Yeah, I mean, making an albatross, I hit it pretty good, too. So it was probably top 10 shots of my career with that 3-wood. And then being an albatross, probably a top one.
