Jordan Smith

Doha, Qatar

Q. How good a round was that out there today, 66 in that breeze?
JORDAN SMITH: I'm very happy with the way I played. It got tough on the back nine, especially, the wind picked up. But I'm just really happy that I went out there and got a Top-10.

Q. As the breeze was building, were you aware that if you posted a score, something good might happen for you?
JORDAN SMITH: Yeah, yeah, definitely had that in the back of my mind sort of thinking getting into the back nine that it's going to be a bit tougher for the guys that went outlast.

Q. How tough are the closing holes playing, 16, 17, 18?
JORDAN SMITH: Yeah, 15 is crosswind, and 16 is downwind but it's hard to hold it. 17 is a tough par 3 no matter what the wind is. Yeah, they moved the tee up on 18 to give everyone a chance, but yeah, a tough par 5.

Q. If you don't win, you never know what's going to happen. How excited are you about going to Dubai next week?
JORDAN SMITH: No, I'm over the moon. I obviously knew that I would get a Top-10 to get into next week. I've got my parents coming out and a few other people, so it will be nice to see them after five weeks away.

Q. 6-under, get your thoughts on that?
JORDAN SMITH: Yeah, just really over the moon with the way I played. Especially over the weekend, yesterday struggled, but I battled and got it done.

Q. Conditions have changed. Talk about that.
JORDAN SMITH: Yeah, the front nine, it was pretty calm, and then got to the back nine and it started blowing. So I knew that it was going to be a bit of a struggle for the guys outlast.

Q. The chip-in at 12, that was nice.
JORDAN SMITH: I couldn't believe it to be honest. I pitched it where I wanted it to and it just released out perfectly.

Q. Another Top-10, so really excited for Dubai next week; what are your thoughts going into that?
JORDAN SMITH: I'm really looking forward. Got my parents coming out and a few other people coming to watch, so I'm just really looking forward to it now.

Q. Taken this position at the start of the week?
JORDAN SMITH: Yeah, definitely.
