Jorge Campillo

Doha, Qatar

Q. Windier today; how well did you play?
JORGE CAMPILLO: It was windier today. I played solid. Missed quite a few fairways, but they were in play all the time and I putted good. So it was a good round.

Q. How hard is it to judge how far your irons are going to go from the rough here?
JORGE CAMPILLO: It's tough. You just hit it and hope, basically. Maybe you take a club less than you think and hopefully the ball jumps out of the rough. The ball is jumping quite a lot and the greens are firm, so it's tough when you miss the fairway.

Q. Would you consider yourself a good wind player?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, decent. I'm a decent player in the wind.

Q. So you'd like a breezy weekend?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, it would be nice if it's windy, yeah. I like the tougher conditions. I get a little impatient when the golf course is playing easy and everyone is making birdies. You miss a few putts and then you get impatient.

Q. You must be pleased with that round out there today?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, it was a tough day. I'm happy obviously the way I played and the way I scored today.

Q. You had back-to-back birdies on 17, 18. How important was that going into the back nine?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, well, 17, the wind was down off the right a little, so it was a little pitching wedge in there, and I hit it about six feet and I made that.

18 was playing tough into the wind off the left. I played a decent hole, but the first shot wasn't so good. I was maybe ten metres off the hole. I made a good putt there.

Q. Conditions out there very different to yesterday. How was that?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, it's a tough course today. The back nine plays a little easier than the front nine. But yeah, it's not easy. The greens are getting harder and the wind is getting stronger, so it's going to be a tough afternoon I think.

Q. So it's nice to get in from that morning?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, obviously if the wind stays like this, it would be nice. Because last week, I feel like the wind always dropped in the afternoon. But I don't think it's going to drop today.

Q. Nice position going into the weekend?
JORGE CAMPILLO: Yeah, obviously. This is a great position to be in going into the weekend.
