Quick Quotes

Q. You know you were tied for the lead at one point?

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: Yeah, I see that. You have the score all over the place, the scoreboards, yeah.

Q. How did that feel at the time?

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: No, feeling good, no? Hitting very well, especially the first nine holes play very well, 3-under par after three holes and then keep solid, miss some birdies, and then save some par, like on the hole No. 15.

Q. Yep.

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: Hit bad tee shot there, and also on the 17, it's a pity. Miss my -- hit a nice shot from the rough, and then the ball run boom, boom, boom into the water for a bogey, and then one putt.

Then on the 18th I hit a nice tee shot. Beautiful 7-iron there. I just hot three meters by the hole and right online with a little miss there.

But overall, fine. Feel well. Feel good. Hitting --

Q. Finding your game?

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: Yeah, I think my game is good. That's the major thing.

Q. You did well on the par-5s. Birdied 5 and 10.

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: Yeah, birdie 5 and 10, yeah, but the only one is the one I put the ball in the water. I hit -- tried to hit to the edge of the water with draw, but I block and put the ball in the water.

There is the first bogey of the day. It's a pity after hitting a very good third shot but a little bit too aggressive to the flag with the pin going down and play tricky putt for par, no, and end up with a bogey.

Overall, it's solid. Under par in this condition is good. More under par, more good.

Q. Is the course getting firmer?

MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: No, it's fair. It's good. The ball is nice, they are holding good and fairways also holding well. I think it's good. It's very good test.
