Quick Quotes

Q. Great playing today. What was the key to that round today for you?

RORY SABBATINI: Oh, obviously I got off to a good start. Shooting 7-under on the front nine definitely helps. Unfortunately on the back nine I kind of ran out of momentum there a little bit.

But, no, obviously it's always key to get off to a good start on Sunday and got myself going in the right direction nicely.

Q. When you shoot 28 on the front nine in the media center we hear that number 59 come up, is that in your head at that time and how do you stay focused?

RORY SABBATINI: No. Actually, no, I didn't even think about it at all today. I just kept just trying to focus on the basic principles out there because earlier on in the round it was windy and then it died off. But I stuck with the game plan, just really focusing on trying to put the ball in the fairways, put it in the right spots on the greens because they were starting to get dryer and a little firmer at the end there, and so I just trying to play smart, play the percentages and unfortunately just maybe got a little too cautious coming down the stretch there, so might fall a few short here.

Q. Just a few years ago it was almost taboo to talk about sports betting in major sports. What's the first thing that comes to your mind kind of now the embracing of sports betting and golf specifically?

RORY SABBATINI: You're asking the wrong person because I don't gamble and I don't have any clue.

Q. But just about, do you feel any different playing out there with it or anything?

RORY SABBATINI: Honestly, no, I have not paid any attention whatsoever to it and I have no clue how they do it or anything, so I'm the wrong person.
