Quick Quotes

Q. Incredible week, just really unlucky break there on 18. Can you run us through your version of events there on that last hole?

PATRICK CANTLAY: Yeah, not too unlucky. I made bad swing, and it went where it went. After it was kind of in the bush there, I figured the only chance I had to stay in the tournament was to try to get it back in the fairway. Obviously I couldn't get it back in the fairway.

Q. Basically if you were going to take a drop you would have had a hard time getting it to the green anyway, right, so you knew you needed 4; your best effort is to just chop as hard as you can at it?

PATRICK CANTLAY: That's what I thought, yeah. I thought if I could get it back in the fairway, I'd have a chance, and I figured it was worth the risk because I didn't think I'd have too much of a chance of getting it up-and-down from the brush there.

Q. It's a third second at this place. What positives can you take? I know it's really early after what you've just witnessed, but what can you take from the week?

PATRICK CANTLAY: Yeah, I mean, I played well all week for the most part. One bad swing at the end. Obviously would have liked to have closed the deal out today, but sometimes that's golf.

Q. You fell behind a few times and were able to battle back. Was that pleasing, as well?

PATRICK CANTLAY: You know, I had a chance coming down the back nine. I hit a lot of good shots, made a lot of good swings, so yeah, like I said, all in all, it was a good week and I played a lot of solid shots this week. Obviously the last hole makes the whole week kind of sour.
