2013 PGA Championship Thursday Interview Transcript: Kevin Streelman

Q.  First off, can you talk about the eagle that you had on 4?

KEVIN STREELMAN:  It's such a great par 5 because you have got to position your tee ball and your second shot to get a birdie. 

Hit a great drive down the right side, which I knew I needed to, and then hit a great 3 wood to the left side, which I knew I needed to because the pin was really just tucked in the back right corner.  Pretty much had a straight look right up the gut.  It was one of those that was tough to make, but had a good line on it and buried about a 60 , 70 footer there. 

Q.  Wow, okay.  So you hit 3 wood and made the long putt, okay.  That got the round going and you finished with an even par.  Can you talk about how that helped you?

KEVIN STREELMAN:  Yeah, this is one of my favorite courses I have ever seen, to be honest.  I feel really comfortable this week.  I was very disappointed with the double I had, but just bad lay up really on the par 5 from the other side, the back side.  But besides that, I played beautifully.  I feel really confident. 

Just go out and attack tomorrow if the greens aren't too bad at 2:00 p.m. in the afternoon.  Play smart golf and just try to get in position for the weekend.

Q.  Did that help this morning having a little bit of rain overnight and then getting out there early?

KEVIN STREELMAN:  Probably.  You know, there wasn't much wind and now there's not much wind, to be honest.  This is a beautiful day.  The greens were nice.  The greens were receptive, as well.  It always helps for us if you have pins that are reasonably accessible, you can attack them.
