PUERTO RICO OPEN


March 8, 2015


Tim Petrovic


RIO GRANDE, PUERTO RICO

Q.テつ Just tell me a little bit about your round today.
TIM PETROVIC:テつ Well, I could have started better.テつ I made a nice 15‑footer on 1 and then I hit it over the green and I chipped in.テつ I'm like, oh, okay.テつ And then I holed out a bunker shot or eagle on the next hole.テつ So I went birdie, birdie, eagle right out of the gate.テつ I'm like, I guess you can't start much better than that.
So that got me going, and then I made a lot of pars and just played solid.テつ Drove it nicely off the tee.テつ Didn't do anything crazy.テつ I knew it was going to be very difficult today, and I just tried to get the ball in the green, give myself as many birdie putts as I can.

Q.テつ Is driving what would be your strength out here this week?
TIM PETROVIC:テつ Yeah.テつ I made a little adjustment on Friday during the round.テつ I don't normally do that, but in the past I've had the ability to make an adjustment like during the round, and I birdied two of the last three holes to make the cut. テつSo I just kept plugging along.テつ I said I'm not missing this cut.テつ I gotta birdie.テつ I gotta make birdie, I gotta make birdie.テつ And I just kind of talked that‑‑ that was kind of my mantra every day, just one hole at a time, okay, see if you can birdie this hole.テつ Okay, go to the next hole, see if you can birdie this hole.テつ So I was just trying to stay focused one hole at a time.

Q.テつ Are you looking at the leaderboard right now?
TIM PETROVIC:テつ No.テつ Actually, I didn't look at it.テつ I birdied 18 and I looked at it and I saw I was tied for first.テつ I thought I was one behind.テつ So you never know.
I know the guys had a tough finish yesterday.テつ The guys dropped a few shots, but in these conditions you never know.テつ But 18 is a birdie hole today.テつ I'm not sure 7 will be good enough.テつ I'll be surprised if it's a playoff.

Q.テつ We saw a lot lower scores today.テつ Can you compare the days out here?
TIM PETROVIC:テつ Well, we got a little bit of rain this morning, maybe just a little downpour, you know, about 9:00, and I think it just softened the greens up a little bit.テつ I noticed the greens were a little bit softer today.テつ I think if they were firmer you wouldn't see these lower scores today.

Q.テつ What do you like about playing here in Puerto Rico?
TIM PETROVIC:テつ The warm weather.テつ It's cold everywhere else.テつ The people are really nice.テつ Everybody‑‑ I love the salsa music.テつ I discovered a great coffee shop over in old San Juan.テつ I went over there three times this week.テつ Great coffee, great weather, great people.テつ Trifecta.
