2014 Senior PGA Championship interview with: BRAD FAXON

Q. A battle today? 

BRAD FAXON:  It was.  I got off to a good start.  I just wasn't as crisp maybe with irons.  I missed a few greens.  Tough up and downs.  It was firmer and faster a little bit on the back nine especially when we finished, the front nine on the course. 

But I played okay, I bogeyed the two par 5s with some silly bogeys, which they always are.  I don't know, is 4 under leading? 

Q.  Yeah. 

BRAD FAXON:  Well, that will make me sick for a little while, but I'll get over it.  But there weren't a lot of birdies out there, that's for sure.

Q.  Hard pins?

BRAD FAXON:  Hard pins, yeah.  Even with short shots, some of these little nooks and crannies, you know.

Q.  What is your mentality now heading into the weekend only a few shots back?

BRAD FAXON:  Actually, good.  I'm a little angry right now, because I had a chance to reach the par 5 9th in two, but I didn't.  But, yeah, I'm in pretty good shape.  I just got to cool down for a second. 

But I'm three shots back, going into a Major, there's a lot of golf to be played.
