Quick Quotes

Q. In the end, a round of 70. What was that feeling when that birdie got to the last there?

BERNHARD LANGER: It was a bit of a relief. It's been a real struggle today. Made a nice birdie on the first, two-putt birdie, and then just struggled there from there on. Hit some poor shots, got some really bad breaks, two or three times, like on 9, hit a beautiful tee shot, then ended up over the green, didn't make birdie. And a couple other ones.

But just, yeah, didn't make a lot of putts, didn't hit a lot of real quality shots except some drives. The drives were good.

Nice to see one drop in the end and get one closer to the lead.

Q. When you're fighting it like you say you are, how do you stay focused, keep yourself in the golf tournament?

BERNHARD LANGER: It's difficult. It's always been difficult because it's just frustrating, and when you think you should play better than you are. And the course was there for the taking. Conditions were beautiful. We didn't have much wind. Just didn't perform. So it's a mental battle as well as anything else.

Q. Four back going into tomorrow. What's the focus? What do you need to get right to give yourself every chance of winning your fifth Senior Open?

BERNHARD LANGER: Well, I've got to do everything a little better. Got to hit the irons closer to the hole and make some putts. Still, somebody can go really low if you play well. But it's that type of course. If you're a little off, it can grab you. So I need to be on all four cylinders all 18 holes.
