Matt Jones


Q.  How do you feel like you played today?
MATT JONES:  I feel like I played very well, probably the worst score I could have shot.  It's a good start to the tournament.  First time I've had a good start in a major for a long time, so it was good to get that out of the way.

Q.  Are you finding the course in good shape for your type of play?
MATT JONES:  Yeah, the course is great.  It's softer and it's helping out longer hitters, which I'm hitting the driver nicely; I did today.  Hopefully it stays that way.

Q.  How were the crowds?
MATT JONES:  Didn't see any really.  The crowd was on the other side, so it was perfect.

Q.  Just talk about having a good start.
MATT JONES:  I left plenty of shots out there.  I had a lot of birdie putts, so it's a good start to the tournament.
Probably look at putting and just tighten things up a little but it's very close.

Q.  Did you expect you could put this together?  Did you feel this was coming?
MATT JONES:  Oh, yes, it's just a matter of time.  Just like winning the golf tournament is a matter of time, having Top‑10s, it's always there.  Just a matter of doing it.  I've had a good start, but that means nothing as we all know and can disappear quickly.

Q.  Talking about the putting, from what I saw, it wasn't like it was bad, you just had a few that just missed or whatever else.
MATT JONES:  Yeah, just missed.  My speed was off today.  I read the greens very well.  I just hit it too hard or too soft, so my speed was a little off.  Some of them are a little firmer than others and some are a little softer; some are elevated, some are not.

Q.  Now you have the opportunity to go out early tomorrow and try to build on this.
MATT JONES:  Yeah, that's the goal.  Go home, have dinner, have a good night's sleep and get back at it tomorrow morning and hopefully get off to a good start and continue on.
