Shane Lowry


SHANE LOWRY: I kind of hit driver a little bit on the back nine. If you lay back you leave yourself a long way into these greens, and it's tough to get it anywhere close. If you lay back you're sort of playing for par. So I took on the back nine. I hit driver on 17, hit driver on 18, as well. When you hit a good driver, it kills the hole. On 17 I was between 8- and 9-iron. And down 18 it was just a nice 5-wood onto the green. And fair enough you might over the course of the week hit it in the bunker once or twice. But the way I hit my driver, I'm confident with the way I hit my driver.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: I hit driver on 10. I was 1-over after 9. I could have gotten away with a 5-wood down there. But I decided to hit driver down there, and I didn't hit a good drive. After that I didn't miss a tee shot.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, it was even a different golf course than the one I was watching back at the house on TV. I couldn't believe how firm the greens were playing. The par 3 6th hole was tough to stop the ball on the green. Any downwind holes, you know, is playing a lot different than yesterday. And when you see 6-under leading and a good few under pars, well, it's hard not -- I think I was getting a little annoyed on the front nine because a couple of bogeys and silly mistakes, but managed to make a few on the back nine.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, I did. I think on the front nine, as well, I got the feel. I feel I got a couple of unlucky breaks. I hit a bad second shot on the first par 5. I think it's the 5th. But everyone was struggling to make five. And I hit an okay shot into 7. And it just ran through the back and went -- I mean a foot into the rough and it was just an awful lie. I hit a shot to 6 or 8 feet. A couple of things happened that made up for that.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: I can't. Listen, there's a long way to go. It's going to be a long three days. So I just have to -- as I said, go back and have some dinner and go to bed and get up and see what happens tomorrow.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: No one's been struck down with any food poisoning, so that's all right.
