Quick Quotes

Q. Overall you have to feel very good about the round, 5-under, and just one off the lead heading into Sunday.

STEVE STRICKER: Yeah, you know, it was a little sloppy at times. I finished sloppy, although I hit all good shots at 17 and walked away with a bogey. But 18 just flared a utility club over in the right there and walk away with a good par, really. That could have been anything from that point. So kind of got out of there with saving the round a little bit.

Yeah, some good stuff, and some stuff that I need to improve on.

Q. In your position, you're right up there with 18 holes to play.

STEVE STRICKER: Yeah, that's the good part. It's a tough little course. If you get out of position, and with the wind blowing the way it is, the greens are fairly quick, and a lot of grain around the greens, so if you miss the green, chipping is difficult. So that part is a challenge.

But yeah, I'm in a good spot heading into tomorrow, and you've got to come out here, and there's a lot of guys up around the lead, so you're going to have to put a good number up on the board I think tomorrow.

Q. Does anything change when there's so many guys kind of right there?

STEVE STRICKER: You know, I think this course if you get it going in the right direction, you can really shoot a nice round like Freddy did yesterday. You've got to kind of expect that somebody may do that tomorrow, maybe two or three or four shots back, putting up a good round.

I think for the leaders, the guys up around the lead, you're going to have to play a good round and maybe shoot 5-, 6-, 7-under and see what that does for you.
