Quick Quotes

Q. What was your take on the round? What was your strength?

JERRY KELLY: Really wasn't a strength. A couple of my up-and-downs, that was really my strength. I found something in the swing yesterday and it was an awesome warmup. You know how that goes. And then I just hit terrible shots in the first bunch of holes and put myself in tough spots. I was just kind of playing swinging the whole day instead of playing golf like what I normally do.

What I found was so different and profound for me that I had to play a little swing. I just didn't do it very well. But I managed the course very well. I tend to get aggressive with my driver because I'm so straight with it but I respected the golf course probably more than I have any time here, and that's where it paid off, and I could just push it up there by the green.

Hopefully I get the swing back in the next five minutes, and rock and roll.

Q. Are you headed to the range to solidify that swing thought?

JERRY KELLY: I'm too old to have lunch and go to the range. I really have to go, right now.

Q. As far as this golf course, how does it suit your game when you're not playing swing?

JERRY KELLY: Very well, because I let that driver go, and be able to hit it, and you know, even when I'm laying up, I'm hitting 6- or 7-iron in, which I enjoy those clubs. We get the putter going, and those mid-irons, I'll be ready.
