Quick Quotes

Q. With 4-under, 66, at the high end of the leaderboard, just assess that round for us.

ADAM SCHENK: Chipped in, made a long putt. Definitely need to clean it up a little bit off the tee. But overall, solid bogey-free day. I remember I started off with a bogey-free round here to start COVID back up actually, and I shot 3-under that round.

I like the course. I've never played overly well here, but it's a cool place. I like the bent greens. So it would be fun to go shoot a low round tomorrow with a little bit fresher greens. It's not much wind this afternoon at all, and I don't think there was this morning. I can't believe how the wind has laid down the last three days. It's never been like this when I've been here.

Fun place to play. I really enjoy it. Look forward to coming here every year.

Q. You mentioned the 66 first round after we came back from COVID. I think you shot another one later in the week as well. That's your best round here. How does this compare with those two rounds maybe that year?

ADAM SCHENK: Not as well. I played really nice coming back from COVID that first Thursday. I don't remember what I shot. I just remember it was bogey-free.

I'm just going to have to drive it a little bit straighter. It's more of a cutting golf course, and I'm a drawer. I'm going to go to the range here and figure out a way to not hit straight pulls and pull hooks. I kind of hit a couple of those today, got away with both of them.

Overall, it's hard to complain when you're bogey-free. Everybody has some bad shots, and we did a good job handling them today.

Q. You sound a little frustrated even though the score was good. What is it that you need to clean up?

ADAM SCHENK: Yeah, the score -- I don't think a lot of people understand, it's kind of irrelevant. I shot 66. It could have just as easily been a 70 or 71. Tomorrow I could shoot 70 and play a lot better than I did today, just because of some luck and a chip-in and a long putt.

If I do continue to putt like I am and clean up the tee shots tomorrow, it should be another good round.

Q. It's such a fine line out here. That's such a good example, right?
