Quick Quotes

Q. 19 points. Excellent round. If we can get some comments.

ADAM SCHENK: Just really have been driving the ball really well the last couple of days. Make a few putts, hit a few wedge shots close. Take care of the par-5. It's definitely out there for you, if you drive it well, play the par-5s well, hit a wedge too close. I've done it the last couple of days. It will be nice to continue it over the weekend.

Q. Nice stretch there on 6, 7, 8. Take us through that eagle, birdie, birdie stretch.

ADAM SCHENK: Yeah, I had a 4-iron in. And then Brent talked me into a 5-iron, which thankfully he did. It was the right club. Hit it four, five, six feet, and putted down the hill and made it. Stuff went in there again on 7, to about four, five feet. Made that one. 9-iron. That's a dicy little pin. Gotta hit a good shot there. Fortunate to do that. 8, drove it short left and chipped it up there to four feet. And it was perfect.

Q. What was your yardage on that 5-iron on No. 6?

ADAM SCHENK: Gosh, I can't remember. Probably 240-ish to the hole. Played it like somewhere around 226, I guess, with 10 percent. And went in a little bit short and it rolled it up the hill, like we hoped.

Q. Talk a little bit about how excited you are going into the last two rounds being up near the top of the leaderboard.

ADAM SCHENK: Definitely it's more fun when you're playing well and near the top of the leaderboard. It's obviously exciting. If I can continue to drive it like I have been, make a few more putts, I mean everybody always likes to make a few more putts, but I cannot complain.

Q. No. 113 in the FedExCup. This is a big week for you. Is that on your mind at all?

ADAM SCHENK: Yes, it would be nice to close it out this weekend, do something special. But cliché saying just do the best I can and add it up again.
