Quick Quotes

Q. I had a question, but I just wanted to hear your general feelings on the day, how you played and what you're disappointed in.

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: I'm obviously pretty frustrated with how I played today. I got off to a pretty good start, and then -- I had a few 3-putts today, which definitely is frustrating, and then I had the bad swing there on the par-3, 15.

Q. It was kind of interesting, you made a comment yesterday about the final round last year about your big lead was gone and then it was time to get after it. Not a huge lead this year, but almost you're back to pretty much even for the rest of the week. Can that almost be a blessing in disguise to not worry about big leads, now you got to go get it?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah. I mean, I try to approach each round the same way, but I mean, yeah, it is a bit weird starting a tournament with the lead. I don't know. It's definitely an interesting format. But, yeah, go out there tomorrow and, I mean, yeah, I guess it's a little bit of a blessing to have a pretty bad day and still be in the tournament. So, yeah, go out there tomorrow and just keep fighting.

Q. I know it's been a little bit of a putter roulette over the past couple weeks. Is this a different one than you had at BMW and if so, why did you change?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: It's the putter I've used, for the most part, for my career. It's the same style that I've won all my tournaments with. It's obviously not the Spider, so, yeah.

Q. Was there something you saw last week that you didn't like?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: I mean, no, it's just the putter that I've used.
