MASTERS TOURNAMENT


April 9, 2015


Russell Henley


AUGUSTA, GEORGIA

RUSSELL HENLEY:テつ I enjoyed the day.テつ I didn't put a lot of pressure on myself to do anything crazy, I just tried to pick good targets and trust that I was hitting the right club and just accept whatever happened.

Q.テつ What did you learn from last year going into this year?
RUSSELL HENLEY:テつ Well, I learned a lot my first year.テつ But last year I played really well the first two days and just kind of got it‑‑ not awful on the weekend, but finished around 30th.
I think all the times I've played it, combined, have helped me realize like where I can and can't hit it.テつ I know that seems like a clichテδゥ answer.テつ But it's so important to hit it in the right spots.テつ I feel like I can give myself a chance to save par if I know that.
Almost the more you play the comfortable you are with it, it doesn't mean there's still not pressure and still not a major, and still not hard.

Q.テつ Talk about the first round and your nerves.
RUSSELL HENLEY:テつ Yeah, this year the nerves were not as bad as the first two years, I don't know why.テつ I just felt a little more comfortable.テつ Definitely had some nerves, but I was actually able to feel like I was in control of my body, when in the past I felt like everything was just flying around crazy.
So I felt a lot more comfortable today than I have in the past.テつ And just tried to keep a good attitude.

Q.テつ Is this the round you were hoping for in terms of your expectations?
RUSSELL HENLEY:テつ I definitely wasn't expecting to shoot any particular round.テつ I was trying not to.テつ I think anytime you can shoot under par out here it's a good score, it means you're doing a lot of things right.
So I have a lot of confidence from last week.テつ I hit the ball really well last week and it showed up on the stats.テつ And I think when I struggle with my ball‑striking ‑‑ hopefully it won't be in the future.テつ I just took confidence from last week and rolled with it.

Q. テつ(Inaudible.)
RUSSELL HENLEY:テつ Yeah, well, it showed progress last fall in the playoffs, started working with him and for a little while there had a couple of things I wanted to change.テつ And once I got comfortable with those I finished second up in Boston, finished 12th Tour Championship, almost won in Hyundai and Maui.テつ I've had a couple of good tournaments since I worked with him and he's helped me tremendously.
