Quick Quotes

Q. You had a pretty impressive round out there today, but it was hard going against Patrick. Were you trying to get in his shadow and ride it along? You played well.

MATTHEW NeSMITH: Yeah, I played great. Patrick played great, SH played great. We had a great group. When guys get going like that, it's nothing but good for the entire group. A rising tide rises all ships. I was just happy that we could all play some great golf and kind of ride the wave.

Q. Are you proud of yourself for hanging in there and giving yourself a chance tomorrow, as well?

MATTHEW NeSMITH: Yeah, absolutely. I'm just going to go out there and do what I did today and do what I've done the last couple rounds. I've played some good golf the last probably four or five rounds, so I'm excited to keep that going tomorrow and see what happens.

Q. You're going in a bit of an underdog with Patrick having played well so many times here before. Does that free wheeling give you a chance get out there and try to get that pin?

MATTHEW NeSMITH: Yeah, Patrick has played great here for a long time, but I've played great here. This is my first cut as a PGA TOUR player. I finished, I think, I've had a top 10 and two top 20s. I've played some good golf here, and it seems to kind of keep running, so I'm excited to see what happens tomorrow.
