GRAEME McDOWELL: To be honest with you, at times I played like I wasÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â riding my luck in that I don't know the proper way to play this golf course. I made a couple early chances and felt like I took a couple of wrong lines off tees.
No. 4, Jeff hit it up the left-hand side and I hit it now up the short right-hand side, and we had a good time and I walked over and looked at his ball and I said, "This is the way to play the ball." I've hit it up the narrowest part of the fairway, and just so happens I made a great tee shot. But at times I realized I was making wrong decisions and I guess in a way I felt like, you know, 62, for a guy who probably doesn't quite know how to play this golf course properlyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â -- you know, I feel like I need my luck in certain places, maybe two or three holes. I felt like I could have played proper golf shots but I haven't played the golf course in the most efficient way. I've got a little bit, and it's fantastic feeling to have done that to St.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Andrews.
Q. Have you ever had a little course expert show you around??
GRAEME McDOWELL: I've never had an Old Course expert show me around. I've looked at my partner's caddie who I thought was an expert, but turns out he's a Kingsbarns caddie. I asked him on the first green, I asked, "Can I on your expertise on the greens?"
He's like, well, at Kingsbarns. I said, well, okay. So I felt like my caddie and I read the greens very well today anyway.
