Quick Quotes

Q. J.T., 63 today, including four birdies to close out the round. If we can get some comments on an excellent day.

J.T. POSTON: Yeah, it was just nice to finally get one going. I felt like the first couple days was a little streaky at times with the ball-striking, but felt like I wasn't really taking advantage of the birdie holes. It felt nice to be able to go out there and make a bunch of birdies and no bogeys and clean good score.

Q. Just one bogey over your last 43 holes, so some consistent play. Just talk a little bit about that.

J.T. POSTON: Yeah, this golf course, if you hit it in the right spots, you can make it pretty easy on yourself, and there's a lot of short clubs into greens, a lot of birdie chances, and so you kind of have to stay in that mindset of being aggressive, and that's kind of been what I was trying to do but without giving any back. I've done a good job the last couple days of doing that, and hopefully do it again tomorrow.

Q. I know you'll keep an eye on the scores down the stretch, but you've put yourself in the mix. Comment on your goals for Sunday.

J.T. POSTON: Yeah, the goal is to win. I think getting my second win last year and kind of validating the first one at Wyndham was -- coming into the season I wanted to put myself in that position more often and not play for top 10s or good finishes or good weeks but play for first-place finishes instead.

That's going to be the goal tomorrow. I'm sure those guys will make a lot more birdies coming in. It's pretty gettable. I don't know how far back I'll be to start the day tomorrow, but hopefully another good score gives me a chance.
