Quick Quotes

Q. Charl, 6-under on a Friday morning. How would you describe your efforts here in the second round?

CHARL SCHWARTZEL: Yeah, good. Just feeling very comfortable with my swing, my rhythm is really good and just sort of continuing from my ball striking from last week. Yesterday I had a bunch of opportunities, just ice cold putter, I think I had 34 putts, and today I made a few putts and that made the difference.

Q. We talked about the close call in New Orleans, that it stung, but there were a lot of positives to take away from it and you sort of embraced that moment from being in the mix. How much of that is a continuation from New Orleans?

CHARL SCHWARTZEL: Yeah, definitely I would say Monday and Tuesday was, when you get that close to winning and, yeah, we were both a little down, but kept trying to remind myself that there was a lot of positives, played really well under pressure and you had an opportunity to win.

So this week, same thing, just kept hitting the ball good like I did last week and I've given myself a lot of opportunities.

Q. You head into the weekend in the mix, how much does winning here five years ago potentially help you over the next couple of days?

CHARL SCHWARTZEL: Yeah, for sure, it's great memories. The golf course is obviously a course that I like, that I play well on and, our game, there's all these little fractions that sometimes makes a difference and at least I put myself in a good position into the weekend.

Q. What did you hit on 17?
