QUICK QUOTES FROM: NEAL LANCASTER
Q. What was working for you out there?
NEAL LANCASTER: I just got off to a good start, I actually just got off to a good start. I think I was 3 under through 4. And I got a good break on the 8th hole and made a birdie.
And actually from there in I struggled. I probably got up and down five times. I started trying to relax and the more I tried to relax the more uptight I got. So, this damn game, I don't know why nobody wants to play it.
Q. After 11 you were 5 under, you probably were feeling pretty good at that point.
NEAL LANCASTER: Yeah, and I 3 putted 12. But I hit a really bad shot. I had a hundred foot putt.
But, coming in, 15, 16, are good holes into the wind. 14. They're playing a little into the wind. But it looks like the wind is laying down. And it's firming up a little bit. Everybody got a little pressure on them and it is Major, so everybody's hopefully choking a little bit like I was doing.
Q. You go 73, 71, 71, 67, so you got better all the way in.
NEAL LANCASTER: I used the long putter. I was using the long putter for about five weeks and went back to the short putter today. And it's the first time I picked one up in five weeks. And I actually hit it really close on the front nine and made a few.
But I just, I still am not performing like I want to, as far as from tee to green. I wasn't striking the ball very well. But I got around with 67, which is good. Would love to have four of those, I would be right there.
Q. Talk about 18th. That was a big up and down for you.
NEAL LANCASTER: I hit it left of the green and actually didn't hit a great drive and I was actually thinking, man, I would really like to chip this in, this would be some big money if I could chip this in.
I hit a good chip and almost chipped it in. But I was going to hit a different club and my caddie put me on the right club and luckily I just left it in the right place. It was a straight uphill chip and it was very makeable. I just didn't get it done.
