Henrik Stenson

Cologne, Germany

Q. What do you make of a 68 to start?
HENRIK STENSON: I'm pretty pleased with that. The rough is really thick here this year and a lot of emphasis on hitting fairways and greens, and I think I did that. I think I hit all fairways on the par 5s and hit them all in two and 2-putted them. That's where I made most of my score today.

Wasn't really in trouble many times, other than a missed wedge on 10 that left a really difficult 2-putt and I 3-putted that one.

Probably made a 12-footer on the second for birdie and that was pretty much it. Good pace on the greens. Didn't leave me too much work. They get a bit trodded up in the afternoon here. They have been very soft due to all the rain.

So you don't really want to stand over too many four- or five-footers and my playing partners then missed a couple of those. I was fortunate enough I think to make most of them, and I had good pace on my long putting. Not too much stress out there today.

Q. I imagine with the breeze picking up, that was welcome in the heat, but did that make a difference to the way the course played, as well?
HENRIK STENSON: Yeah, it's always a bit tricky to get your irons spot on when the breeze is on. I think it went from probably half a club to just a little bit more, a club and a half, something like that. It was a little tricky at times but I think I managed pretty well.

Q. Physically, managing that pretty well?
HENRIK STENSON: Yeah, it's okay. I can feel my right knee a little bit but it's hopefully nothing bad. I hope it's kind of settled in. Otherwise, eventually I will have to have another MRI to see if I made some damage to it. I hope not, but so far, so good.
