Justin Thomas

Pacific Palisades, California

Q. Talk about your group and playing with Fred Couples.
JUSTIN THOMAS: I had not spent a lot of time around Freddie, so that was cool to be around and he has quite the following out here, so that was pretty cool to be a part of.

As for myself, it was kind of a weird day. Any time you're in the afternoon on poa annua, it can be tough and just have to stay patient. Just missed some shorter ones that I felt easily could have gone in just as easily as they didn't, but at the same time, I felt like I made a lot of really good 3- to 5-footers. I'm looking forward to fresh greens tomorrow, that's for sure.

Q. How do you feel the way you played No. 10 today, iron off the tee --
JUSTIN THOMAS: It was great. Hope do I that the rest of my career, pretty easy. But no, it's a lot easier today to what it was Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday when it was firm. For me personally, I like laying up on that hole. It's not a very good yardage, not a very good shot for me. Yeah, just kind of how I like playing it.

Q. 4-iron?
JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, 4, anything to, occasionally maybe a 2-iron, usually a 4- or 5-iron, maybe a 6-iron, and just a wedge in.

Q. When you picked your ball up on 18 out of the hole it looked like you had an exchange with Jordan and he actually smiled.
JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I just asked Freddie if I was in his through line and Jordan was upset that I didn't ask him even though I knew I wasn't anywhere close. Just giving me grief as usual.

Q. Even through it all, what was it like to play with him on a day when there were so many scores separating you guys. You're used much closer --
JUSTIN THOMAS: Doesn't matter who you are, everyone has days like this. Obviously you never want to see anybody not do well, let alone a friend. I wasn't worried about him. I was worried about myself. I was just trying to worry about how I could get it in the hole as fast as I could. As a group, we had some holes we were struggling on the greens and that was just a part of it. I think he'll be just fine.
