Q. You go to La Quinta tomorrow?
JAY HAAS: La Quinta tomorrow. Which I think over the years has been one of my harder golf courses. I'm not as comfortable there. We play there one year and then we're off one year or something, back and forth, so it's hard to get a flow there.
I think it's probably as tight as Indian Wells, but it's a little bit longer and requires a few more drivers off of tees. Some of the par 5s are not just giveaways. If you drive the ball well at Indian Wells, I hit a 7-iron, a 3-iron, a 4-iron and a 3-iron into the par 5s today at Indian Wells; that's like the long hitters do at most courses.
At La Quinta, I don't know, I can reach a couple of them comfortably and maybe all of them with some of my best shots, but probably no irons at all. To me, it's one of the harder golf courses of this rotation that we play.
Q. How many drivers did you hit at Indian Wells today?
JAY HAAS: Just five out of 14, maybe one iron and the rest 3-woods. Didn't seem like that. As I go through it, I would have thought more than that. You just don't need it. The par 5s, I did, and No. 10. That's probably standard for everybody on that golf course.
JOE CHEMYCZ: Birdie at 4?
JAY HAAS: Birdied 4. Hit an 8-iron to about eight feet.
5, I hit a 4-iron -- driver and a 4-iron to about 15 feet and 2-putted.
8, driver and a 3-iron to 30 feet and 2-putted.
14, driver, my longest drive, the tees were up a little bit and that bunker is usually right in my wheelhouse. But the tees were up, so I got over the bunker and hit a 7-iron to 30 feet and 2-putted.
18 was my ninth hole. I hit a 3-iron just short of the green, not a very good shot, and pitched and kind of got up on this ridge and was about 10 or 12 feet from the hole and rolled back down to about 30 feet, and I made that.
So that was kind of a stolen one there. Take those with the lipouts, too.
