Quick Quotes

Q. Place where you've had great success, another good week, just kind of a recap of the week.

ADAM HADWIN: Yeah, any time you shoot 25-under during a week of golf you're doing something right. I wish I had made a few more early on the back side there to at least maybe have a chance coming down the last few. Support all week has been great. This place is -- I love this place. I played so well at this golf course. I feel so disappointed not to -- I felt like I had a good chance again this year to make a run at it, and I just kind of stalled out again on the back nine. That's been my MO the last few years. But I always look forward to coming back, but, yeah, nice solid week, and I'll enjoy an off week next week.

Q. Were there any of those missed opportunities where you were looking for a surge or certain areas you were looking to fine tune next week?

ADAM HADWIN: Yeah, I just think being in this position, getting more comfortable, trusting myself. I think that's probably the biggest thing. I think, coming down, there was just too much doubt creeping in, and just not trusting the golf swing that I have and hitting the shots. Yeah, getting, 8, 9, 10, there, three in a row, and had a great look on 11 and 12, and wasn't able to do it. I think just didn't trust myself well enough coming down the stretch to get it done.

Q. Week off, no Farmers, see you next at Pebble. Another multiple-course event. How are you feeling with your game entering that?

ADAM HADWIN: Yes, listen, I love the west coast. Traditionally, I played very well at the start of the year on these golf courses. There's no more -- you'd be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot to play golf than Pebble Beach. I'm looking forward to enjoying the week off, getting some rest, and then coming back out.

Q. You've had a great round here in the past. Nick Dunlap was looking to do that, looking to come down the stretch. What does it say about the youth of the game?

ADAM HADWIN: It's incredible. Obviously, a massive talent. To prove -- it seems like guys coming out of college now aren't afraid anymore. I feel like, this is my 10th year now, and I feel like it took a few years to kind of get comfortable out here. Now, with this PGA TOUR U and guys playing events before getting a TOUR card and stuff, they're comfortable, and there's no adjustment needed, they come out firing. They all hit it so far now, too. But, obviously, an incredible talent and, yeah, very impressive.
