Quick Quotes - 2

ADAM SCHENK: 16, I caught a bounce off a spectator and shot me back across. Instead of being in the pine straw, I was in the rough with a good lie and had a 9-iron and was able to pitch it near the hole. The greens are pretty soft.

18, just hit a great drive and hit a nice second shot and the wind really affected the ball in the air. Looked like it was going to be a really good shot 10 feet right of it and it moved it left off the upslope into a pretty good 15-mile-an-hour wind. So fortunate that it was the right distance. Almost flew in the hole it looked like. That would have been really cool, but I'm glad I made the pitch.

Q. Difficult day with the wind last on a tee time you hit more greens than either the first two days. How did you find the patience out there you knew it was going to be a day where par was a good score?

ADAM SCHENK: David did a really good job of making sure I stayed patient because it was tough. Not a lot went our way early. Today was the best I played, but was the worst score I shot. Funny how golf works. We had good control of our ball today, drove it really nicely. Make a few more putts tomorrow and drive it like that again and see where it takes us.

Q. What did you learn about you today in this golf course with a late tee time tomorrow?

ADAM SCHENK: Just trying to improve every day and every tournament. I know what I'm bad at and I know what I'm good at. I know my tendencies and I just try to play to those tendencies. When I get in an uncomfortable situation I just try and do the best I can with what I have. I'm not a great cutter of the golf ball, I'm just learning to kind of play around that in different wind that I really struggle to cut the ball in, if I have to play a cut. So it's just getting by those trouble areas.

Q. So a cold northwest breeze tomorrow, 50 degrees, it's just like high school golf all over again. You have the advantage, right?

ADAM SCHENK: Exactly, you would think so. I know Jordan's played in some wind before and a lot of the guys have a few more wins than me, but maybe we'll see tomorrow, who knows.
