Scottie Scheffler

Quick Quotes

Q. Little happier day today. What do you attribute that to, just making some more putts?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah, I don't know what the stats look like, but I feel like I rolled it better today. I was really close to playing really good. I got a few -- I mean, around this place you're a yard from sometimes having really good shots and then having a spot where you can't really get up-and-down. 18's a good example. I had another one of those on 5 where my ball's landing in the face of these bunkers and the grass and it kicks it so far back you're sitting on a down slope and you got no chance of getting up-and-down.

So if the ball lands a yard further, a little different story. I hit a lot of good putts. Definitely better than the last two days, but still not where it needs to be. But definitely better.

Q. How different were the conditions today compared to the first two rounds perhaps?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Just greens were a lot softer, less wind this morning. It was nice to be able to go out early and shoot a decent score. I would have liked to have shot a little bit better, but it was a decent round of golf. Last two days were pretty frustrating, so proud of how I battled today.

Q. When you go out tomorrow, what's the incentive for you to go out and shoot the lowest score you can shoot? Is it a challenge that you place on it for yourself?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Not really. I don't like shooting over par no matter the situation. I would say this morning was one of those mornings where it was tough getting up out of bed. Fourth week in a row, make the cut on the number, woke up. I had a crick in my neck this morning. I just wasn't feeling good getting out of bed.

Got out here and battled pretty hard and I somehow hit it really nice today. I was having trouble taking the club back. I was using my hands the whole day. Saw a couple putts go in, not many. Still felt like I hit a lot of lips. But definitely, I feel comfortable over the ball and hopefully things will start improving.
