Quick Quotes

Q. Can you tell us a little bit about your round today?

ROBERT KARLSSON: Yeah, it was a good round. I played nicely. I only made a couple of mistakes. I was a little lucky a couple of times, but that's what happens when you have a good round. Yeah, holed a nice few putts, but good solid round. I'm very happy with it. I'm so happy to be back playing golf again after such a long break. It feels good to be here.

Q. How did you feel about your game heading into this week?

ROBERT KARLSSON: I've been working pretty hard over the last six weeks, so even though golf is kind of always a long-term project you're trying to just kind of trend in the right directions. It feels pretty good, though. I was here and played this golf course about a month ago just to see what was coming because everything is kind of new for me, even though I played last year. The next two months I think I've only played one course, so I thought, why not come down here, enjoy a bit of weather and play the course and be a bit better prepared. It was a good move.

Q. What did you do during the six-week layoff?

ROBERT KARLSSON: Well, over the six weeks -- obviously I was when here four weeks ago or three weeks ago, I played a bit of -- I did focus a bit on this event. The way I'm playing is probably not -- normally around these golf courses it's great normal, a positioning game, so I worked on a few shots that would be required on this golf course, probably hit a few more than normal. I did practice, too, spent a lot of time in the gym. I know it's going to be a long season coming up now, so I wanted to feel fit and ready to go when we got here.
