Quick Quotes

Q. Can you describe your round?

SUNGJAE IM: I was happy with my shots today. I hit a lot of fairways, so it made my approach shots a lot easier. That gave me a lot of good looks at birdie, which helped me go low. I’m very happy with how it went out there.

Q. What was the confidence like heading into this week?

SUNGJAE IM: I honestly wasn’t feeling very confident the last few weeks. I feel like it’s all coming back to me now. I’m having a lot of good momentum and I hope to keep it going for the next two days.

Q. What is the difference from yesterday to today?

SUNGJAE IM: Honestly, my shots felt the same. Yesterday, I didn’t hit as many fairways as I did today, so it made things a little more difficult. My tee shots were more consistent today, so my round felt more stable and I was more at ease.

Q. You obviously played well before the break and struggled a bit since the Return to Golf. What has changed?

SUNGJAE IM: I haven’t been swinging the ball like I’ve been wanting to the last few weeks. Starting last week though, my swing started to feel a lot better and I was hitting the ball similar to how I was hitting it before the quarantine. That allowed me to play with more freedom and consistency.

Q. Have you thought about the possibility of winning $15 million?

SUNGJAE IM: I’m aware of the $15 million on the line, but I try not to think about it when I play. I know if I play my best the next two days, the opportunity will come. It all seems like a dream. Just thinking about it now makes me pretty happy.

Q. What would you do with the $15 million?

SUNGJAE IM: I would buy a house in the United States and save so that I can live a comfortable life in the future.

Q. Would you play less if you had $15 million or keep playing more?

SUNGJAE IM: Keep playing more.
