Golf Channel interview

TYLER STRAFACI: I didn't see it touch the sand or whatnot, but my dad saw it and I guess a couple other people saw it.

Q. Oh, wow, he can't do that.

TYLER STRAFACI: That was one of the best matches I've ever played, just back and forth. He's a great kid.

Q. They've got it on camera.

TYLER STRAFACI: He played great, we both played great, and for that to happen, I feel really bad for him.

Q. Well, you're a real gentleman for how you competed. I can see in your face how much you're hurting for your opponent. How do you put this aside now tonight and get ready for tomorrow morning's matches?

TYLER STRAFACI: I want to make it worth something. I'm going to go out tomorrow and try and win my match and keep moving.

Q. There's a rich history of golf in your family; what would it mean to go along in this championship and ultimately play on Sunday?

TYLER STRAFACI: It would mean the world. I'm just putting a lot of work toward it the past year. I really struggled last year. Over the past summer it's been really good to get some positive stuff going on, and if I happen to play well the next couple days, then it would just be the experience of a lifetime.
