Billy Andrade

Royal Porthcawl, Wales, United Kingdom

Q. 3-under par 70, how pleased are with you that?
BILLY ANDRADE: Yeah, it was a really nice day. I had four birdies. Only made one bogey at 16 which was unfortunate. I competed today. I was in control. I felt pretty comfortable out there. I wish I could have made a couple more on that back nine put a little pressure on Bernhard.

But all in all, it was a great week. It's a beautiful golf course. Everybody is excited about how great this place is. The weather was a little dicey this week but I think we all battled through it. Looking forward to coming back here. This is a fantastic placement.

Q. How tough were conditions today?
BILLY ANDRADE: The first two days were brutal. Yesterday was a breath of fresh air, and today was a little like the first day without any rain. The wind came back up but it was the same kind of wind. It didn't blow out of a different direction. A lot of left-to-rights, a few downs, turned around into the wind. All in all, I think you look at the golf course and see the scores everybody is shooting, the golf course won.

Q. When did you feel it slipping away?
BILLY ANDRADE: The back nine, I'm still going along. I had some good chances at birdies. Birdied 13 and after that, I didn't get anything to drop. All you can do is give yourself opportunities and I gave myself quite a few.

Q. Not many leaderboards, 4-under through your first 13. Did you have a sense that you were right in the mix?
BILLY ANDRADE: I knew I was, sure. I saw that I was close there at 8 after I birdied 8. Miguel Martin was up there, too. I was playing with him and he was playing great. You were just going along trying not to make any mistakes and see if I can make a few more birdies.

My goal was to try to get in with a couple under and put some pressure on Bernhard, but all in all, it was a great week. This is an unbelievable golf course. It's just beautiful and really looking forward. I heard we're coming back here in a few years. This is quite a place. Anyone ever has a chance to come here and play, this should be on your bucket list.
