Quick Quotes

Q. Morning wave, solid round. How did you feel about it?

RICHY WERENSKI: Pretty good. I mean, I hit it really solid today. I just kind of cruised today, which was nice, for the first time in a while. I didn't really get into any trouble. Definitely hit some shots that weren't great, but they just ended up in good spots, easy up-and-downs, so it was a pretty comfortable round.

Q. What's it like to have one of those rounds where you feel comfortable and kind of on cruise control, like you mentioned?

RICHY WERENSKI: I mean, it's nice. I played good in the practice round, too, made a bunch of birdies, and I don't know, I'm seeing the greens and stuff are matching up well with my eye, and like I said, I just feel like I'm hitting it pretty solid. I feel like it's going to be hard to get in too much trouble.

Q. Predicted weather kind of throughout this week. Kind of what's the mindset knowing we could be having a little bit more wet course conditions?

RICHY WERENSKI: I mean, I know it's going to -- it's definitely going to rain, it's just a matter of when. The course is in good shape right now. I think if it gets a little softer, it's going to play probably a little easier, but there's some long holes, so those will play a little tougher.

You can definitely throw some irons in there close.

Q. What area of your game are you taking away the most that you felt comfortable today?

RICHY WERENSKI: I think driving is probably -- driving and I putted pretty well. But I've been driving it really well for the last couple of weeks now. Feels good.
