Quick Quotes

Q. 5-under 65, great today. Just a few comments on what you felt good about out there.

BO VAN PELT: It was funny, I hit a couple close -- I had the same yardage with my 50 degree wedge like three times -- and I hit it close and made birdie. So I think sometimes when you have a good round you end up getting good numbers.

Then to birdie two par-3s early was great. The par-3s are really strong here. So that helped.

Yeah, no, I was disappointed, the two bogeys I made on the back nine, one's a downwind par-5, which I think that's my second bogey on par-5s this week, so you got to clean that up.

But 17 I hit a pretty good drive and just ended up kind of right up against the collar and had a tough shot.

But man, all in all just, look, man, it's been a long time since I made a cut out here so I was happy to get to play today. So to play good today, you feel like you're game's getting better but you just never know. So it was nice to put a good one together.

Q. Is there anything specific that you felt good about, any part of your game that you've been working on that's coming around?

BO VAN PELT: It was nice, I had two weeks off where I didn't hit a ball, the week of the PGA and the week after. Last week I played a Korn Ferry, my coach Mark Wood caddied for me. Kind of squeaked in, made the cut on the number. I think I finished dead last. But it was just good to play four rounds. And me and him, we spent a lot of time on the range, just some stuff I needed to clean up.

So felt like you're getting better, but you just never know. Then, yeah, like yesterday I got off to a good start. Again I was 3-under I think on my opening nine. Made a couple bogeys on the back nine.

But was starting to see some better quality shots. Hitting it closer, which obviously small greens this week you got to be sharper with your irons.
