Quick Quotes

Q. 6-under 65, nice playing today. If we can get some comments on your round.

LUCAS HERBERT: Yeah, it was nice to play well out there. I felt like I started the week playing really nicely. I played really nicely on Thursday and gave probably four shots back there on 16 to only shoot 4-under, so I felt like I didn't get much out of that round.

Then struggled yesterday, so to play nicely today and get what I should have gotten out of the round was sort of pretty satisfying, given the last two rounds.

Yeah, it was good to get out there early, take advantage of some softer conditions and post a number, see where it leaves us at the end of the day.

Q. A nice group you had playing with Jason.

LUCAS HERBERT: I always enjoy playing with Jason. Just does everything really, really well, and mentally very good to watch and copy in a lot of ways.

Enjoy his company as much as anything, as well, but it's really good to feed off him from a golf point of view, too.

Q. Just one bogey out there. Take us through No. 11.

LUCAS HERBERT: Yeah, just turned the tee shot over and was in a dicey lie in the rough, didn't get it out the way I would have wanted to, and couldn't get it up-and-down. There wasn't really a lot to it. Didn't think too much of it at the time. Just happens. I wouldn't say it's a hard golf course out here; we're not going to make a lot of bogeys, but they creep in every so often, so I didn't take too much harm from that.

Q. Now after a nice move today, talk about your expectations for tomorrow's round.

LUCAS HERBERT: I don't know. I don't know what the lead is going to get to. I'd imagine guys should go out and take advantage of the course this afternoon, so we'll see how far behind we are. But the way I'm playing, if I can continue that form into tomorrow, go and shoot a low one and post a good number, it'll get us off to good start for the season for sure. It's hard to see from this far out what the winning score is going to be, but I definitely want to be in the hunt on that back nine.
