2012 PGA Championship Interview Transcript -- Dustin Johnson

Q.  How was your day?

DUSTIN JOHNSON:  5 through 13 was a tough stretch of holes but played better.

Q.  Even playing 3:40 as opposed to 5 1/2 doesn't do anything for your game?

DUSTIN JOHNSON:  No, it doesn't really make a difference to me.

Q.  As far as the weather conditions, how much better was it today?

DUSTIN JOHNSON:  I mean, it's still tough.  The wind is not quite as strong as yesterday so it played a little bit easier.

Q.  How would you characterize the fans, you have a lot of buddies, families and friends here?

Q.  Do you and have you enjoyed playing this golf course, or is it a golf course you like to play?
