Quick Quotes

Q. 74, how did that leave you feeling?

ALEX CEJKA: I really didn't hit many great shots. I kind of drove it in play but had three, four really poor shots, cost me a bogey, but overall, I made a couple birdies. 3-over is 3-over. It was a tough day for everybody. Still on top of the leaderboard, so I'm pleased.

Q. Really taxing physically. How taxing was it mentally?

ALEX CEJKA: Yeah, as I said, three, four, five loose shots that cost me a bogey. In the wind and everything, you want to do a certain shot but you just can't pull it off. If you're in a really, really bad lie, it's tough to make up and down. It was a little bit frustrating. The weather, everybody had to deal with it. It was a little tough. Couple good bounces if you're lucky, avoid the bunkers, it's doable. But it's been a tough day.

Q. You've won two senior majors over in America. What would it mean to you to add the Senior British title?

ALEX CEJKA: I think for everybody, winning a major is special. Winning a couple years ago, it was great. In Europe, I'd like to win and it would be special.
