Scottie Scheffler

Quick Quotes

Q. First off, just want to talk about the neck pain and what you were experiencing out there.

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah, I hit a shot on my second hole today and I felt a little something in my neck, and then I tried to hit my tee shot on 12, and that's when I could barely get the club back. So I got some treatment, maybe it loosened up a tiny bit, but most of the day I was pretty much laboring to get the club somehow away from me.

Q. Any sense this was coming, any pain leading into tournament week?


Q. Comments just on the round today --

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah, I did what I could to kind of stay in the tournament today, and hopefully it'll loosen up and then I'll be able to make somewhat normal swings tomorrow.

Q. The plan is to go get some treatment?


Q. Obviously Wyndham is playing, but you're right on his tail and a lot of golf left to play?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah, like I said, I did enough I felt like today to keep myself somewhat in the tournament, and so that's really all I could ask for. The way I was getting around the course, the way my neck was feeling, I didn't know if I was going to be able to continue playing, so yeah, good fight out there.
