Quick Quotes

Q. Carl, second consecutive 66. If we can get some comments on your play.

CARL YUAN: Yeah, for sure I played very solid today again. Drove the ball a lot better. Had a little setting change on the driver and stayed patient out there all day and very committed.

Yeah, I was happy with how I played for sure.

Q. You hit 12 of 14 fairways today. What was the change with the driver?

CARL YUAN: I was just losing it to the right yesterday, and just got a setting a little more upright so I can swing more freely. I think it definitely helps, just really trust my swing coming into the shot. So yeah.

Q. Talk about how comfortable you were on that front nine, six birdies.

CARL YUAN: Yeah, I mean, I kind of just kept my head down, trying to go one hole, one shot at a time, just picking really smart targets and swinging aggressively. Yeah, it turned out good.

I know I have the game, and I've just got to stay patient and have fun out there.

Q. Just one bogey there on the last. Sounds like maybe a little unfortunate there.

CARL YUAN: Yeah, I had a mud ball directly behind the ball, so I didn't have a clue where it was going to end up. It was a little unfortunate, but it is what it is. Still excited to play on the weekend.

Q. Currently tied for the clubhouse lead. How excited are you, and what is your mindset going into the last two rounds?

CARL YUAN: I think play good first two rounds, try to almost do the same thing. I think really plan out a good game plan and stay committed and trust myself there.
