Quick Quotes

Q. Nice playing out there today. Conditions at the start of the morning looked like they would be really challenging, which they were, but was the key that the wind was kind of constant, was that a factor in maybe some good rounds out there today?

HAROLD VARNER III: Yeah, I think it's obviously a part of golf, it is what it is and you just kind of embrace it. I was just happy to play well and just good to be back in the saddle, honestly, it's been awhile, it's been a crazy off-season and I just enjoy the challenge, I love competing and obviously it showed today.

Q. You're in a position, obviously you're still looking for that first win and right now 18-under's leading, but from over your years of experience as you go into tomorrow's round what are you going to try to just tell yourself to do?

HAROLD VARNER III: Do exactly what I've always tried to do, try to win, like just play my game and stay within myself. I've had some experiences where I feel like I'm, every time I get in that position I'm getting a little bit better and I'll have another chance again tomorrow.

Q. Is there anything this week that stands out about your golf game that has helped you?

HAROLD VARNER III: Nothing, really, just I got to do the same thing every time. So I love this question, I'm like, yeah, I feel like I'm getting better at golf, that's just what it's about, it's my journey and I'm going to ride it as far as I can.
