Quick Quotes

Q. 67 to match your opening 66, one shot behind, how do you assess your game through 36 holes?

BERNHARD LANGER: It was solid yesterday. Today, hit a couple loose shots. Just really made one long putt somewhere, 13, I think it was, otherwise I really haven't made a whole lot of putts. I'm struggling with my putter. I had three 3-putts in two rounds which is too much on these greens.

But overall, it's fairly solid and I'm driving the ball fairly good, which keeps me in play to attack some holes. That was key yesterday. I got off to a great start today with an eagle on 1 and another birdie but just couldn't continue on the back side.

Q. Your driving was good, you hit a long putt, but I hear you were padding your driving stats on the second hole?

BERNHARD LANGER: Yeah, that was a perfect drive, little assist. That's what you need when you're 63 years old. Yeah, I hit the road on the fly and it was probably 100 yards down, it was a nice pitching wedge in there. Usually hit a hybrid.

Q. One back going into the week, probably going to be tough conditions out there, what type of plan do you make for rainy conditions both days?

BERNHARD LANGER: Keep the stuff dry as much as possible. I have a good caddie to help me with that. Just plug along. It's going to be miserable at times when it's rainy and windy and all that but hey we've been there before. Just try and make the best of it. Keep the ball in play and hopefully make some birdies and give them something to cheer for.
