Will Zalatoris

Pacific Palisades, California

Q. Back in the round of 16. It's been a couple years. How does that feel?
WILL ZALATORIS: Good. Obviously a lot happened between then and now, so I'm excited.

Q. Got off to a quick start today. Up 3 after six holes. How did you do it?
WILL ZALATORIS: Yeah, you know, as crazy as it sounds, there was already kind of a turnaround on the second hole. He was in the middle of the fairway and I was basically up against the driving range and chipped out, and then pulled my next shot into the left bunker to a tucked pin and he pulled his up on the hill. Got a little lucky, and I ended up pulling my bunker shot for par and he makes bogey.

(Wind) to have at least a 1-up advantage, but I swung it early and (Wind interference.) I think being 3-up through six was huge.

Q. (Wind interference.) Birdied 5 and 6.
WILL ZALATORIS: Yeah, 5 was giving was everybody (wind).

Q. Yeah?
WILL ZALATORIS: Yeah. And 6 I had a 35-footer and he had about 15 feet for par. I ended up just making it anyway.

Q. And then he came back at you a little bit and then you had to par the 13th hole to go back to 2-up.
WILL ZALATORIS: Yeah, just like I said, I just wasn't hitting fairways. I was just scrambling pretty much the entire back nine. I think I technically only hit two greens on the back; had a couple on the fringe.

Was basically putting on four holes for birdie and (Wind interference.) That was -- I need to change that. (Wind interference.) That 60-degree is 12 (wind) and I had 3-wood in there and another 3-wood on 14 to make par -- or 13, excuse me.

(Wind interference.)
