Q. Were the greens slow or was it just your putting?
CHRIS RILEY: It was definitely me. I put a couple good strokes that didn't go in, but then I hit a couple bad strokes that just were not very good. You usually know when you hit a putt whether it's going in or not, and I really didn't hit any good -- I hit one good putt and it didn't go in. That was pretty much it.
Q. When the players first came here a few years back, they put up some incredible numbers, but we heard guys say two, three, four years down the road when this place starts to mature, you're not going to see these kind of scores. Was that the case?
CHRIS RILEY: I think I shot 16- or 17-under and finished 4th in 2000, the first year it was here. I don't know what I shot last year, I can't remember, but it is definitely getting tougher. It's kind of weird, the more we see it, it should be getting easier. The course is coming along great. This is my fourth one, and like I said, it's always going to be on my schedule because I enjoy coming back to Moline. Even though I've got to drive three hours to Chicago to catch a flight, I'll always come to Moline. It's a great place, a great sponsor.
Q. What's so tough about Vijay?
CHRIS RILEY: I wish I knew so I could be more like him. He's in the Tiger Woods, Davis Love, Mike Weir, their class. I'm trying to get there. I'm not there yet, but I think the more experience I get, the more times I get there, I think I can do what they do. I don't hit it 300-plus yards, but I feel like if my putter is working, I can play with anybody. Vijay is just a world-class player. He's played all over the world, and I'm just trying to get there.
I three-putted No. 2 yesterday from 25 feet.
Then I birdied 8, I hit a driver, 8-iron in there about six feet, made that.
Then I three-putted 11.
I birdied 14, hit a driver and a pitch shot to about three, four feet.
I hit a fat 5-iron from the middle of the fairway, chipped it up about ten feet, missed that.
Hit it three feet on 16 and made it.
